How to Make Grasshopper Cheesecake
Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar at high speed. Add eggs and creme de menthe, and Bisquick mix and beat for 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl and once the mixture is fully incorporated, fold in the chocolate chips—transfer mixture into the prepared pie plate.
Bake for 35 minutes or until the center is firm. Allow the cheesecake to cool down for about 45 minutes.
In a saucepan, combine whipping cream and chocolate chips. Melt over medium heat while continuously stirring. Once the mixture is smooth, remove from heat.
Spread the chocolate ganache over the cheesecake. Put in the fridge for at least 3 hours until set. Serve and enjoy.
