Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache is the perfect holiday treat!
In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter, mix well to moisten. Press into the bottom of a 10 inch spring form pan.
Using a stand mixer or electric mixer, add cream cheese and sugar to the bowl, mix on a high speed to combine. Add eggs, one at a time until combined. Add vanilla and peppermint extract; mix. Add condensed milk and melted chocolate chips; combine until just mixed. Remove bowl, add ⅓ cup chopped M&M's® White Peppermint; fold to combine. Pour filling on top of graham cracker crust and evenly smooth out the top. Place into oven and cook for 50-60 minutes, or until just set.
Remove from oven and allow to cook on the counter for 1 hour. Place into fridge and leave for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
The next day, using a double boiler, add chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream; mix while melting, until melted and combined. Use a spatula to spread ganache over the top and sides of the cake. Sprinkle ½ cup M&M's® White Peppermint over the top.
Slice and serve. Store in refrigerator.
**This water dish will help humidify the oven - leave at the bottom while the cheesecake bakes.
