Chocolate Cheesecake

This Cheesecake is perfect for the Holidays! I hope you like it as much as I did! Enjoy!!

Serves 10-12
  • 2 cups crushed Chocolate Cream-filled wafers
  • 760 grams Cream Cheese at room temperature
  • 1½  cups granulated Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tablespoons of all purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 3 large Eggs
  • ½ cup melted butter

For garnish:
  • 1 cup semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 teaspoons Butter

Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC)
In a bowl, combine the melted butter with the crushed wafers, mix well, and press into the bottom of your baking baking dish , (I'm using a 3-QT rectangular baking dish 12x 9), set aside until you are ready to use it.

In an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and the sugar, until blended, add in the the sour cream and vanilla, blend until well blended. Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 30 seconds, before adding the next one, then  also add in the flour and cocoa powder.  Blend on high for 2-3 minutes.

Pour the cream cheese mixture into your prepared baking dish, and bake for 1 hour at 350ºF.  After an hour, turn off the oven, but leave the cheesecake in it for another 30 minutes or so.

After 30 minutes, remove the cheesecake from the oven, and set it aside for a minute.

In the microwave, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips with 2 teaspoons of butter, mix well. and drizzle the  melted chocolate over the cheesecake. Let it cool, or serve, enjoy!
