SMS Chocolate Cheesecake with Blackberry Glaze

Shandy at Pastry Heaven by Shandy selected Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake with Blackberry Glaze for the final SMS selection this year. I have missed the last couple of weeks and really wanted to participate this week. I also happen to LOVE chocolate cheesecake!
There is nothing difficult about this recipe, but it does involve several steps and several hours total time; however, the time and effort are so worth it because the end result is phenomenal! Incredibly rich, this is one of the creamiest cheesecakes I have ever tasted, let alone made.
I assume that the creaminess comes for the addition of chocolate infused cream to the cheesecake mixture. I did omit the espresso and the rum because I didn't have them and didn't feel the recipe would suffer. The crunch of the hazelnuts in the crust is a nice surprise and balances the creamy texture of the cheesecake.
Thanks Shandy for this awesome selection! Check out what the other SMS'ers did here.

  1. Your glaze looks wonderful on top of your cheesecake! I skipped the glaze and thought it was plenty rich without it :) Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Love your picture with the blackberries on top of the glaze. Beautiful. I really liked this cheesecake.
