I have already tried plenty of cheesecake recipes, and I can say that this no-bake cheesecake recipe by El Mundo Eats is one of the best ones out there. Cheesecakes are so expensive when you buy them from cafes or restaurants. And most of the time, they are not well made. They either lack flavor or the texture is not right. If you are a fan of cheesecake and are tired of eating bad-tasting cheesecake at an expensive price, I suggest you make them at home instead.

Believe it or not, making cheesecake is actually easy. This chocolate cheesecake has three layers: cookie base, cheesecake, and chocolate ganache. With each bite, you can taste the three layers with different textures. The base adds a bit of crunch, which complements well with the smooth texture of the ganache and cheesecake. It is so good and the best one that I have tried in a while. Make sure to make it at home.
