Halloween Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

October 31st, 2009

chocolate-cheesecake.jpgTravis Sago of bum marketing fame along with his wife Jeannie sent this chocolate cheesecake recipe to his subscribers today for Halloween. While I do not normally eat cheesecake very much, this one looks surprisingly simple to make and might be worth a try. Links to other Travis Sago favorites from previous years can be found at the bottom of the article.

Whassup this Halloween? Travis here…

Are you a choco-holic? (It’s okay…I won’t tell.)

If you are…

I betcha this little Halloween Chocolate Cheesecake will curl your toes as you take your first bite. :-)

This is Jeannie’s ‘famous’ recipe and when she makes it for our friends and family…you’d think we’re holding a religious gathering because all you hear is cheesecake muffled murmurs of OH-MY-GOD, OH-MY-GOD, OH-MY GOD.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do while you are having a happy and SAFE Halloween.

OMG Halloween Chocolate Cheesecake


  1. 2 tablespoons butter
  2. 1 1/2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  3. about 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. 3 packages cream cheese, room temperature
  2. 3 eggs
  3. approximately 2 cups sugar
  4. 4 tablespoons cocoa powder unsweetened

Using a Springform pan, melt about 2 tablespoons of butter, add about 1 1/2 cups of chocolate graham cracker crumbs, and mix in 2 tablespoons sugar. Stir well with a fork and press into the bottom of the pan.

With an electric mixer, mix three packages cream cheese, with three eggs and about 2 cups of sugar. Add cocoa powder. Pour this into the pan, on top of the crust and bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. It’s pretty much done when a toothpick inserted in it comes out clean, but I like to leave it in about five to ten minutes longer because the cheesecake takes on a wonderful fudge brownie-like consistency on the top layer. The center will be a bit wiggly but will firm up as it cools. Let it cool and remove the form from the pan.

Also, If you put a pan of water in the oven, on the bottom rack, while the cheesecake is baking, the cheesecake is much less likely to crack.

You can add the Halloween flair by using some orange icing or sprinkling a few candy corns on top.
