Triple Chocolate Mascarpone Cheesecake

This is one of a few cheesecakes that I'll make again, not only because it's simple to prepare, yet the result has never failed me.
It's more like chocolate pots de creme, smooth & rich, I once called this killer chocolate cheesecake.
It's absolutely chocolatey.
A little inspiration is topping with chocolate ganache & dark chocolate sprinkles.
It is freezing in London & it's no more comforting than having a rich chocolate cheesecake in a warm sofa.
Wish you all have a happy valentine's day.
