My oldest son turned seven the day after Thanksgiving, which meant a second day of feasting to celebrate his birthday. We enjoyed a shrimp boil for lunch, the traditional birthday meal in our house, and we were stuffed to the gills again!

He had his big birthday party the weekend before, when he had a chocolate and whipped cream birthday cake, so for his actual birthday The Tall One requested strawberry cheesecake. We all thanked him for the idea once we tasted this cool, creamy dessert. It uses strawberry jam, so it’s easy to make any time of year. I’m sure you will enjoy this cheesecake with the flavor of chocolate-covered strawberries!

Units Scale
  • 16 oz. cream cheese softened (I used reduced fat)
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. mini chocolate chips
  • 1 prepared 9-inch chocolate cookie crust or make your own
  • 1/3 c. strawberry jelly


  1. Place shallow dish filled with about 1/2″ water in the bottom of your oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Scrape sides and bottom of the mixing bowl, add eggs, and mix on medium speed until combined.
  3. Add chocolate chips, and stir on lowest speed to incorporate chocolate. Pour cheesecake mixture into prepared crust.
  4. Microwave jelly for about 15 seconds, and stir. It will have a liquidy consistency.

Hi! I’m sure it would be good with crushed pineapple swirled in instead, but maybe not with the chocolate ;) Thanks for stopping by!
