Best Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake Recipe


  • Crust:
  • 3/4 cup wafer-cookie or graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese (light)
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, light (neufchatel)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup amaretto
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate mini-morsels


Combine crust ingredients and pat  into a 7-inch springform pan.

Beat the cheeses with the sugar until smooth; add eggs and whipping  cream and beat for about 3 minutes  on medium speed of an electric  hand-held mixer.Add amaretto, cocoa, flour and vanilla; beat for  about 1 more minute.

Stir in semi-sweet chocolate morsels; pour into prepared pan. Place the cheesecake on a rack in the Crock Pot (or use  a “ring” of aluminum foil to keep it off the bottom of the pot). Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Let stand in the covered pot (after turning it off) for about 1 to 2 hours, until cool enough to handle. Cool thoroughly before removing pan sides.

Chill before serving  store leftovers in the refrigerator.
