Instant Pot Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake
I love making cheesecake in my Instant Pot. It is so easy and it bakes the cheesecake to perfection. Since the water goes in the Instant Pot anyway, it is no trouble to make a water bath. The cheesecake is simple to make and almost becomes a set and forget it type dessert.
Do I Have to Use Godiva Chocolate?
The main part of this chocolate cheesecake is made using cocoa and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The Godiva chocolate is the Godiva Chocolate hearts that are on the top as decoration. If you have a different chocolate heart candy you like, you can swap these hearts for those.
How do I Keep My Cheesecake From Cracking on Top?
When you are making a cheesecake one of the main reasons that the cheesecake cracks on top is because the ingredients were not at room temperature. Make sure that the ingredients, like cream cheese and eggs, are at room temperature before you start. Thankfully with this kind of cheesecake, even if the top cracks, you will not be able to see it under the chocolate mousse.
