Chocolate Cheesecake V Recipe
- 2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
- 5 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 5 eggs
- 2 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, melted
- 6 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, melted
- ½ cup sour cream
step 1: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (140 degrees C). Using a fork, combine the melted butter and cookie crumbs. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan to form the crust.
step 2: In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar and eggs until blended. Pour half of the cream cheese mixture into the crust. Stir 2 ounces melted chocolate into remaining cream cheese mixture, then pour over the first layer.
step 3: Bake cheesecake on the center rack of preheated oven for 50 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan, then cut around edges with a knife to loosen cheesecake before removing pan sides.
step 4: In a medium bowl, combine 6 ounces melted chocolate and sour cream, stirring until blended. Spoon mixture on top of cooled cheesecake. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
