The first step to make this deliciously beautiful Red Velvet Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache for Valentine’s Day is to mix up the red velvet brownie crust. Doesn’t that just set the tone? I love the contrast of the cocoa powder and the flour in this bowl of dry ingredients.
While the brownie crust is cooling, you will mix up the no-bake cheesecake filling and get it ready. This gorgeous pink color is perfect for your Valentine’s Day candlelight dinner, after date dessert, or family celebration! This part will need to set in the refrigerator for at least two hours, so plan ahead and don’t try to make this cheesecake the day of your event.
After your red velvet cheesecake is fully set, you can remove it from the springform or push pan, and get it onto the final plate where you will serve it. This is where we add the chocolate ganache, so having it in its final resting spot is crucial! You are ready to create your chocolate ganache sauce and pour it over the top of your cheesecake.
Oh man, this picture makes me want to go ahead and make the recipe right now! Here’s a different angle of the chocolate ganache going just to get your tastebuds going.
For a special finishing touch, you can add some crushed cookies or sprinkles to the top. This is a mix of chocolate sprinkles with pink and gold sugar. So pretty!
The end result is a decadent, delightful, and downright gorgeous Red Velvet Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache for Valentine’s Day or any time you have a craving for it. Look at the yumminess!
