A chocolate crust with mocha-flavored cheesecake filling, drizzled with melted chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee crystals

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 (14-ounce) can (1-1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, cocoa and baking soda. With a fork, cut in butter until crumbly. Press into the bottom of a 9×13″ baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, dissolve coffee in 1 tablespoon hot water and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk. Add coffee mixture and eggs; beat just until combined. Pour over crust. Bake for 20 minutes or until set. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When firm, cut into 1.5-inch squares (photo shows these cut into larger bars, which you can also do). Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. Transfer melted chocolate to a resealable plastic bag and with a scissors, snip off a tiny corner of the bag. Drizzle melted chocolate over squares.

I make these often. The fact that they are not too sweet appeals to Swiss tastes. Instead of piping melted chocolate chips, I sprinkle very lightly with powdered sugar and decorate with mocha coffee beans.

tasted like they were missing something. nice that they weren't too sweet.

These are delicious!!! I used 1 c. butter instead since crust seemed kinda dry. Even my husband gobbled them up after turning his nose up at the thought of being coffee flavored!

They were bitter, they need more sugar.
