I love cheesecake and my husband loves chocolate, so this is a favorite dessert of ours. The rhubarb adds a tartness that complements the sweet flavors so well.

This recipe is:

12-14 Servings
Prep: 40 min. Bake: 1 hour + chilling

2-1/2 cups thinly sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
2 tablespoons orange juice
1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

Rhubarb Swirl Cheesecake
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, lightly beaten
8 ounces white baking chocolate, melted

  • In a large saucepan, bring rhubarb, 1/3 cup sugar and orange juice to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir until thickened and rhubarb is tender. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, cornstarch, vanilla, salt and remaining sugar until smooth. Add eggs; beat just until combined. Fold in white chocolate.
  • Pour half of the filling into crust. Top with half of the rhubarb sauce; cut through batter with a knife to gently swirl rhubarb. Layer with remaining filling and rhubarb sauce; cut through top layers with a knife to gently swirl rhubarb.
  • Place pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 16 in. square). Securely wrap foil around pan. Place in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until center is almost set.
  • Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Cover and chill overnight. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 12-14 servings.
  • Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
