Chocolate Cheese Cake

A different cheese cake today-a chocolate one. This is a no bake cheese cake and chocolate making it a hit for many of you. It isn’t my favorite chocolate cheese cake – I am not a gelatin cheesecake fan. It is quite retro in prep though…including the cooking of the chocolate pudding. Chocolate Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheese Cake

2 cups crushed cinnamon graham crackers
1/2 cup unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
2 4-oz. packages chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
1 12-ounce carton (1 1/2 cups) cottage cheese, sieved
1 cup heavy cream, whipped

Prepare crust, mix crushed graham crackers and melted butter together. Press on bottom and sides of 9-inch spring-form pan. Soften gelatin in water. Cook chocolate pudding according to package directions; however use only 2 cups milk. When thickened, stir in gelatin. Fold in sieved cottage cheese. Cool to about room temperature and then fold in whipped cream. Pour into crust. Chill until firm. This dessert may be frozen. Makes 10-12 servings. Garnish with whipped cream and shaved chocolate, if desired.
