A few months ago, my dad tried a layered mousse cheesecake at a restaurant and asked that I make something like it for his birthday. I found this recipe online and baked it for him yesterday (his birthday was actually the 4th, but we celebrated on Saturday instead). It has a chocolate cookie crust and a layer of cheesecake followed by a layer of chocolate mousse. Then, the whole thing is topped with chocolate ganache. The recipe itself wasn’t too challenging, but it took a while because the cake had to chill in the fridge between layers.
Let me just tell you, this turned out to be absolutely delicious. Not to mention gigantic. All four of us had a piece, and we still have over 3/4 of the cake left! The cake was wonderfully creamy, and the fluffy mousse went perfectly with it. I’ll definitely be making this again sometime.
