Chocolate Shavings and Finishing

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. To make crust, crush enough graham crackers with a rolling pin to obtain 1 3/4 cups. Add melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Combine well. Press onto bottom of a 9-inch diameter springform pan.
  3. Place in oven for 8 minutes. Once pan is cold, spread a thin film of vegetable oil on inside walls of pan. Sprinkle oil with one tablespoon sugar to make releasing the cheesecake from the pan easier. 
  4. For vanilla mousse cheesecake, combine gelatin and water in a small bowl and set aside for a minimum of 3 minutes.
  5. Heat milk until lukewarm. Add gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved. Set aside.
  6. Ensure that cream cheese is at room temperature before proceeding. Place cream cheese in a large bowl. Add granulated sugar and mix with a firm rubber spatula until completely smooth and no lumps remain. Add vanilla extract.
  7. Add milk/gelatin mixture in 5 increments waiting for the previously added amount to be fully incorporated and mixture is smooth before adding next.
  8. In separate bowl, whip cream to soft/medium peaks and not as stiff as you would to pipe rosettes on a pie or cake.
  9. Add to above in one step and fold just until combined. Transfer to prepared pan and level surface evenly. Place in freezer.
  10. For mocha layer, combine gelatin and water in a small bowl and set aside for a minimum of 3 minutes.
  11. Heat coffee liqueur until lukewarm. Add gelatin and instant coffee and whisk until completely dissolved. Set aside.
  12. Ensure cream cheese is at room temperature before proceeding. Place cream cheese in a large bowl. Add granulated sugar and mix with a firm rubber spatula until completely smooth and no lumps remain. Add vanilla extract.
  13. Add coffee/gelatin mixture in 5 increments waiting for the previously added amount to be fully incorporated and mixture is smooth before adding next.
  14. In a separate bowl, whip cream to soft/medium peak and not as stiff as you would to pipe rosettes on a pie or cake.
  15. Add in one step to above and fold just until combined. Spread onto vanilla layer and place in refrigerator. To speed setting, place in freezer for an hour and then transfer to refrigerator.
  16. Remove cake from pan when firm, about 3-4 hours or overnight.
  17. For chocolate shavings, chop chocolate into small pieces and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in a microwave oven at 12-second intervals until melted. Set aside.
  18. Place a cookie sheet briefly under broiler or heat over a gas stove. The pan should feel lukewarm but not so hot that you cannot handle it without heat-resistant gloves.
  19. On backside of pan, spread a super thin layer of chocolate using an offset metal spatula.
  20. Place cookie sheet in refrigerator for 15-20 or more minutes or until chocolate is solid.
  21. Scrape chocolate from pan using a spatula, scraper, or cookie cutter into shavings and place on cake.
  22. Whip cream and sugar in a cold bowl to firm peaks. Using a large French pastry tip, pipe kisses onto cake. If desired, sprinkle with cocoa powder and/or powdered sugar.
