Hi! Wellcome to Do It Like A Boss! Today we're gonna try to make black cheesecake for Instructables's Cheese Challenge! If you want to support, please vote for us! Let's start to make this black dream!

Step 1: Cookie Base

For the base, get 250 gr of chocolate cookie crumbles and mix with 150 gr of melted butter which I colored with black food dye.

Press the crumbles on bottom of the mold and bake it at 330 degrees.

Step 2: Cheese Mixture

Meanwhile, get 1 cup of sugar and 2 eggs. Beat them until they become creamy.

Step 3: Cheese Mixture

Add 3 tbsp of flour and black food dye. Mix them again.

Step 4: Cheese Mixture

After they blended nicely, add 1/2 lemon juice, 1 tsp of vanilla powder, 1 cup of heavy cream which I colored with black food dye and 400 grams of cream cheese.

Step 5: Bake

Finaly, mix them until they blended well and pour it over the baked crumbles. Bake it at three houndred and thirdy degrees for fothy five minutes.

Step 6: Blackberry Sauce

After your cake is baked, get a pan and add in 350 gr of blackberry, 5 tbsp of sugar, 100 ml of water and 1/2 lemon juice. Cook them until they melted and blended by heat.

Step 7: Blackberry Sauce

When it boils, mix 2 tbsp of corn starch and 60 ml of water and pour it in pan. I added a little bit of black food dye 'cause you know... I love black and it's black cheesecake, isn't it?!

Step 8: Refrigerate

Pour blackberry sauce on the top of the cake and refrigerate it for a night.

Step 9: Serve

This is sooooooo good. Smells perfect, looks dark and taste... Delicious! I know you're black lover too and don't forget to vote us for love of black!

Take care!

    I love the idea of a black cheesecake but I was wondering....will it turn every ones teeth black? So much is needed to color it black makes me nervous. Have to served it to family or friends and have had any complaints about black teeth and mouth?

    Really nice recipe development! Another way to 'blacken' a baked good is to add black cocoa powder. It has a strong, but very good, dark chocolate taste. It can replace all of the cocoa powder in a recipe or half&half, whatever your preference is. I use it in almost all of my goodies since my family prefers a less sweet chocolate flavor. When I added it to my chocolate almond biscotti, it tasted as though it had been made with the cookie part of Oreos!

    Such a good tip that you gave us! Actually, I thought about doing the base with oreo that because it could be look much darker than normal chocolate cookie. But I haven't any and I chill about it. :) After all, the main theme is cheese, isn't it? <3


    Interesting. This would actually be a good fit for the Halloween Food contest. You should think about entering.
