Triple chocolate cheesecake is probably one of the most decadent desserts you are going to have this year! Rich, creamy, cheesecake, topped with raspberry mousse; this is a serious chocolate fix, and it looks pretty darn impressive. We don’t usually do too much during Valentines at my house, but a great dessert is a priority for after dinner that night. It’s always so crowded at restaurants, and seems like prices constantly increase just for this night, so because of this, home is where I tend to hang out.

Instant Pot Raspberry Mousse Chocolate Cheesecake

This is a very simple Instant Pot cheesecake recipe. The cheesecake is dense, and delicious. We use a  7-Inch Round Non-Stick Springform Pan for the recipe. Now please remember, all 7″ pans are not created equal. If you don’t have the same brand as what I’m using, that’s fine. The important thing is to not overfill your pan so cheesecake overflows during cooking and runs down the side of your pan. First, it’s a mess when that happens, and second, it’s a waste of darn good chocolate. So if you have a different model, just leave about a 1/2″ from the top.


We used a chocolate in the 53% – 60% range. Brand doesn’t matter, if you have a favorite use it. For the white chocolate in the mousse, we used Ghirardelli Premium Baking Chips. Again, if you have a favorite, go ahead and use it. The important thing here is to not over melt the white chocolate. When the time comes, just put it in the microwave for 10 second intervals. Stir after each 10 seconds and only go long enough to melt it.

For the recipe we used a raspberry puree. Now during the summertime I may switch to a strawberry puree if I can find great strawberries during the season. To make your own puree, just put the raspberries in your food processor and pulse until they are liquid. Depending on the size of your raspberries, it may take a full pint size container of raspberries to get this much puree. If you don’t want clumps strain through a cheesecloth to remove any clumps and there you go. I kept the larger pieces in my mousse. Just depends on what you like.

We covered the top of the cheesecake with foil during the cooking process. Loosely cover the cheesecake. If you wrap the foil so tight that nothing gets in, you will need to extend the cooking time. A loose wrap is all you need. If you have excess moisture after cooking, then just dab it with a napkin to remove the excess water.

If raspberries just aren’t your thing, we also have a triple chocolate cheesecake instant pot recipe topped with chocolate ganache, or a white chocolate peppermint cheesecake.

Please share if you end up making the recipe. Always love hearing how it turns out.

    I have never had a springform pan. They are super interesting to me. I love that you included the percentage of chocolate you want. I haven’t thought about how different percents would change the flavor!

    Reply
    • serena February 3, 2018, 11:48 am

      And if you like a darker or lighter chocolate, feel free to change. The percentage isn’t set in stone.

    We don’t do much on Valentine’s Day, either (okay, we don’t do anything touchy-feely at all, to be honest); but VDay could be the perfect excuse to treat ourselves with this delicious cake! I’d possibly replace raspberry with strawberry, though, for that’s a favourite with us 😉

    Made a dark chocolate cherry version! I did a batch and a half in an 8″ springform (in my 8qt IP), and cooked it 32min (perfect). Used very dark chocolate (85%) cuz that’s what we love, so it’s a very rich cheesecake!! Looking forward to eating it tomorrow!
