SET aside 1/2 cup morsels for ganache topping. From remaining morsels, sort out 1 tablespoon mint morsels and place in small, heavy-duty plastic bag for drizzle; set aside.

MELT remaining morsels in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15- second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Cool slightly.

BEAT cream cheese, brown sugar, granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons cream and vanilla extract in medium mixer bowl on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add melted chocolate; continue beating for 1 minute. Spoon into crust and smooth top.

MICROWAVE remaining 2 tablespoons cream in 1-cup glass measure on HIGH (100% power) for 20 seconds or until boiling. Add reserved 1/2 cup morsels to cream; let sit for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Cool for 5 minutes. Spread ganache over cheesecake to within 1/4-inch of edge.

MICROWAVE reserved mint morsels in bag on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 20 seconds; knead. Microwave at 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag. Drizzle over top of ganache. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



Instead of drizzle I used crushed up peppermint patties around the outer edges, delicious! And since mint chips were out of season, I used peppermint extract along with the vanilla.

Dark chocolate mint cheesecake

This cheesecake is absolutely the best I've had. My family simply loves it. Only one suggestion. Please make the dark chocolate mint morsels available year round. I was lucky to purchase 3 bags at Christmas time. I'm using my last bag this Easter, so we won't be able to have this again until next Christmas.

Minty goodness!

Smooth creamy, minty-chocolate goodness! Very sweet but nothing a glass of milk can't handle. Didn't care for the drizzle - it hardened up too much - could just be personal taste. Will make again if I can find those chips in the store again.

No-Bake Dark Chocolate & Mint Cheesecake

It was pretty good for a no bake, but it was still a little sour tasting.
