Our Orange Chocolate Cheesecake combines the great tastes of cottage cheese and orange yogurt for a refreshing dessert you can't resist--straight from the dairy aisle! Plus, we added a chocolate graham cracker crust and some chocolate-dipped oranges for a taste that's so good, you're gonna be running to the store--if you don't have the ingredients in your fridge already! 

What You'll Need

  • 18 whole chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 1 cup butter, melted and divided
  • 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (16-ounce) container cottage cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 (5.3-ounce) containers orange and cream yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Chocolate-dipped orange sections

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor or blender pulse graham crackers into crumbs. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 cup butter; mix well. Press mixture into bottom of springform pan; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and cottage cheese until well combined. Add sour cream, yogurt, the 1-1/2 cups sugar, eggs, orange juice, vanilla, flour, and the remaining 1/2 cup butter; beat until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture into springform pan. 
  4. Bake 55 minutes, turn oven off (center will be slightly jiggly), and leave pan in oven for 60 minutes. Let cool, then refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, remove sides of springform pan and garnish with chocolate dipped orange wedges. 

Test Kitchen Tip

  • To make the chocolate wedges, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir and continue to microwave until chocolate is smooth. Dip orange section in chocolate halfway and place on a waxpaper lined plate. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens.
