Frosty Chocolate Cheesecake

My grandma’s famous Frosty Chocolate Cheesecake has a chocolate cookie crust and a creamy chocolate cheesecake filling. And it’s best served ice cold!

The only thing better than Chocolate Cheesecake is a frozen Chocolate Cheesecake. Even in the dead of winter! I’m serious.

My grandma is the queen of make-ahead-and-freeze everything, so a cake that needs to be frozen anyway? That’s her jam.

And apparently this cake is also her personal invention, at least according to the recipe card.

MY LATEST RECIPES

Grandma’s Frosty Chocolate Cheesecake appeared everywhere from birthday parties and anniversaries to dinner at her house on a Tuesday (complete with Hand & Foot, our favorite card game).

The rich, chocolatey filling is lightened up with whipped cream and poured over a homemade chocolate cookie crust.

It takes 6 to 8 hours to freeze the cake solid (it’s best if you can leave it overnight), but just like Grandma does, you can make it a month in advance. (She does her entire Christmas Eve meal this way, too).

Let the cake rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before slicing. You’re going to love it!
