This swoon-worthy cheesecake is a sweet way to enjoy the holidays. Whether you make it for Christmas, St. Patrick’s day, or even a refreshing summertime treat, this recipe is a winner. Also known as a grasshopper cake, the mint filling gets its green hue from gel food coloring. The mint flavor is apparent in the crust, too. Mint-flavored crushed Oreo cookies are an excellent way to make this cheesecake even more flavorful.

Tips For Making Cheesecake In An Instant Pot

Making a cheesecake in your Instant Pot is actually easier than baking it in an oven. You’ll need to use a 7″ springform pan so that it will fit in your Instant Pot. 

One of the best things about cooking your cheesecake in a pressure cooker is that you don’t need to worry about a water bath seeping into the springform pan. This is because you’ll actually add water to your Instant Pot and your pan will be suspended above the water. The easiest way to do this is to use an inexpensive sling accessory for your Instant Pot.  You can even make a sling by folding a long piece of foil twice length-wise. This allows you to place the springform pan on top of the foil and use it to lift and lower the cheesecake into the inner pot.

Another great reason to use the Instant Pot for cooking a cheesecake is that the texture comes out amazingly perfect every time. Between the steam created from the water to the natural pressure release of a pressure cooker, there’s no cracking of the oven door which could create cracks on the top of your cheesecake. Using the Instant Pot will give you superior results every time.

Set for a manual high-pressure time of 35 minutes, allowing for a 15-minute natural pressure release at the end of the cooking time, before releasing any remaining pressure.

Cool the cheesecake for 1 hour at room temperature before putting it in the refrigerator. For best results, let the cheesecake rest overnight, but no fewer than 4 hours.

When the cheesecake is done chilling, mix chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream in a saucepan over low heat. Heat while stirring until a smooth consistency has been reached. Pour the chocolate ganache over the top of the cheesecake and place it back in the refrigerator until the ganache has set. This should take 30 minutes to an hour.

To remove the cheesecake from the springform pan, slide a knife around the pan to loosen the ganache from the pan. Then you can release the spring as you normally would. If you skip this step, the ganache might crack. 

Of course, you’ll still need to let your cheesecake cool at room temperature and then chill it in the refrigerator before adding any toppings.

I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but it really does make a difference when you leave your cold ingredients, such as the cream cheese and eggs, on the counter to come to room temperature before you begin the recipe. So plan ahead and you’ll be happy that you did!
