Cheesecake Factory Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake

This Cheesecake Factory Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake recipe is a rich, chocolaty dessert with a tangy raspberry swirl in the middle. One of the many chocolate cheesecakes that can be found on the Cheesecake Factory menu, each bite of the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake is packed with flavor, yet is easier to make than some of the more complex cheesecakes offered at the restaurant. As with all cheesecakes, you’ll want to plan ahead to allow it sufficient time for the cake to chill in the refrigerator before serving it to your guests.

How to Make Blueberry Jam

Use this blueberry jam recipe as a substitute for the raspberry sauce in your cheesecake.


  • You can visit the farmer’s market and make use of the seasonal fruit found in your region by using strawberries or blueberries instead of raspberries in your cheesecake.
  • The Cheesecake Factory serves their Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake garnished with whipped cream. Spray aerosol whipped cream onto the top of each cheesecake slice before serving it. For added color, reserve a few berries while making the sauce and place them on top of the whipped cream.
