This dessert combines the richness of chocolate with the tartness of cranberries and crunch of graham cracker cookies.


8 oz. bittersweet chocolate (high quality)

2/3 cup light corn syrup

1/3 cup heavy cream

2 large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cup dried cranberries

2 cups Ready-Set-Serve Proprietary Blend Orange Juice

1 lb. cream cheese (cubed)

2 cups chocolate cookie or chocolate graham cracker crumbs

1/3 cup butter


Melt chocolate; set aside.

In small sauce pot, reduce orange juice by half, then add cranberries and continue reducing until slightly thickened.

In a food processor, blend cream, corn syrup, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add cream cheese; once smooth add chocolate and half of cranberry glaze by hand. Remove and set aside.

In clean food processor blend together chocolate cookies and butter. Pack mixture into 9” Springform pan. Pour mixture over crust; bake at 325 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until set.
