Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake

I am a fairly new owner of an Instant Pot! I wanted an Instant Pot because I was looking to make healthier and/or quicker meals for my son and myself!

How do you make your life a bit easier for your household?

With my Instant Pot, I’ve been looking at different recipes to try. Since my son loves spaghetti, I’ve made that for us a few times. I still looking for other types of recipes to make.

I think that’s why I wanted the Instant Pot in the first place, the opportunity to cook things quicker! I already use the air fryer oven to make baked potatoes, which is so much easier than heating up a huge oven! Using a smaller and more efficient appliance just saves time and energy overall. I find myself using my air fryer at least once a day!

  • Place in the freezer until the filling is ready.
  • To make your filling, start with all room temp ingredients. Place your cream cheese into a large mixing bowl, and mix on high until light and fluffy.
  • Add in your sugar and mix until just combined.
  • Add in sour cream and mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Add in the melted chocolate, cocoa powder, and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Last, add in your eggs, you want to make these the very last thing you mix in and mix as LITTLE as possible. Add your eggs one at a time and mix just enough so that they are fully incorporated.
  • Pour your filling into your prepared crust, and cover the top of your pan with tin foil. If you would like to take it a step further, you can cover the bottom of the pan as well.

  • Prepare your instant pot with one cup of water, and place your trivet in the bottom of your pot.
  • TIP: Make a sling by tearing a piece of aluminum foil, and folding in making a long strip, and place that on your trivet. This will make it easier to remove your pan afterward!
  • Place your pan in your pot, and place the lid on, and make sure it is sealed.
  • Place on high pressure for 35 minutes.
  • After 35 minutes, allow for a natural release. When you can open the pot, take the pan out, and place somewhere that it can cool. I do not take the foil off of the top, If you want you can at this point, just know it may look like it is undercooked and very jiggly. It’s OKAY! After it cools completely, place it in the fridge overnight.
  • Once your cheesecake has set overnight. Make your ganache by combining the chocolate and cream into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30-second intervals until the chocolate is mostly melted. Stir the chocolate until all is melted and it thickens slightly and pour onto your cheesecake.
  • Serve and enjoy!
