Just because I've gone gluten free doesn't mean I don't want any dessert! Now you could always get some gluten free graham crackers (or regular grahams if you don't need gluten free) and make a crust but this recipe is just fine without it! This cheesecake is very easy to whip up and takes few ingredients.

Chocolate Cheesecake

What You Need:

  • 1 c. sugar (I used turbinado)
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • 24 oz cream cheese
  • 1 t. vanilla

Melt the chocolate chips either on the stove or in the microwave. Mix all the ingredients together with a hand or stand mixer until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour into a greased springform pan. Bake at 350F for 55-60 minutes. The middle should be just slightly jiggly when it's done. Cool for at least 6 hours before eating.

Hi, I am wondering what size springform pan you use for this recipe? Thanks.


5 Merissa April 27, 2013 at 4:27 pm

I guess I didn’t know they make more than one size! Maybe 9 inch?


6 Shawna April 30, 2013 at 12:31 am

Thanks. I ended up using a 10 inch pan. It turned out great.

I would use a chocolate graham cracker crumb pressed in the bottom of the pan.
Otherwise it sounds great !

What is turbinado sugar? Where do you buy it at? Does it taste as good as regular sugar? Thanks Jc

Turbindao sugar is raw sugar (unprocessed sugar), you can buy it at most grocery stores now in the sugar section. It tastes similar to brown sugar.

How long would you bake this if you were to do these in a cupcake pan? They sound yummy, I’m so excited to try them 🙂

I’m not sure because I haven’t done them that way but I’m thinking it would be a slightly shorter time, you would just have to keep an eye on them, they will be done when the middle is no longer jiggly.

Do you put the spring form pan in a water bath in the oven?


14 Merissa October 14, 2016 at 7:09 pm

No I do not for this recipe.


15 Julie Mcgee October 15, 2016 at 4:23 pm

Thanks so much!

Would that be a teaspoon of tablespoon of vanilla?


17 Merissa December 19, 2016 at 8:42 pm

Lowercase t = teaspoon

Thank you!
