This cheesecake may be the ultimate chocolate and caffeine indulgence. We’ve infused cream cheese with cocoa and espresso powder, then topped it with a light and fluffy espresso mousse.

To make the espresso mousse topping:
*We suggest making the cheesecake the night before so that it has time to chill before you make the mousse topping. If you do not want to make the cheesecake the day before, make sure it is cooled to room temperature before you add the mousse topping, so that the mousse does not dissolve into the cheesecake.
**When making the mousse, make sure your whipping cream and the bowl are well chilled to get the best volume.
Cake cooling time in oven: 1 hour
Cake cooling time on counter: 30 minutes to 1 hour
After cheesecake and mousse are assembled, chill for at least 4 hours in refrigerator before serving.
