Kahlua-spiked espresso cheesecake swirled with creamy chocolate cheesecake for a decadent dessert!
Hellooooo kahlua cocoa coffee cheesecake.
If you’re afraid of dessert. If your New Year’s resolutions had anything to do with carbs… LOOK AWAY. Yep. You heard me. Don’t look back. Don’t turn around. And don’t return until it’s April and your resolutions are history.
But if you’re here for an over-the-top, creamy, slightly caffeinated, decadent dessert, WELCOME. Let me break this down for you:
- A buttery oreo cookie crust
- Kahlua-spiked vanilla espresso cheesecake
- Creamy chocolate cheesecake
- Silky chocolate ganache
I mean. Look at those swirls… like your favorite mocha latte…
This decadent cheesecake is inspired by the Cheesecake Factory’s similar kahlua cocoa coffee cheesecake. But I’ve swirled together the vanilla and chocolate base instead of layering them. I may have teared up a smidge when I discovered Cheesecake Factory had discontinued theirs, so this recipe was NECESSARY.
