Ganache New York Cheese Cake Recipe

If you can’t make it to New York for the New Year’s Eve celebrations, have a slice of the big apple at home with this New York style cheesecake covered in chocolate ganache. My sister Lauren {who is far better at baking, crafting, diying, and all things creative than me} made this for a family get together and it was a huge hit. She loves to cover her desserts in ganache, and once you see how easy it is to make, you’ll probably start doing the same.

Yields: 9-inch cheesecake

Ingredients – New York Cheesecake:

15 graham crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup milk
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
crushed Almond Roca (or candy of your choice)

Ingredients – Ganache:

1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch springform pan. Make sure your oven reaches the proper temperature using a candy or meat thermometer. Also, add in a baking dish of hot or boiling water to keep cheesecake from cracking.

In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.

Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.

For the ganache, cook the heavy cream and chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water until smooth and warm, stirring occasionally. Pour over cooled cheesecake and top with crushed candy.
