  • 4 pck. (8 oz each) Cream Cheese
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • ⅓ Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tspn Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour

Pie Crust:
  • 3 Cups Chocolate Cookies (Oreo type)
  • ½ Cup Melted Butter 

Chocolate Sauce:
  • ½ Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 ¼ Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips 

Strawberry Swirl (optional)
  • ⅓ Cup Unsweetened Strawberry Marmalade
  • 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 2-3 Tbsp Sugar

Preheat the Oven to 325ºF

I added a Strawberry swirl in this cheesecake, but this step is optional.
To make the Strawberry Swirl: In a blender, add ⅓ cup unsweetened strawberry marmalade, with one cup of frozen strawberries and about 2-3 tablespoons of sugar, blend until well blended, the pour into a saucepan and bring to a boil, once it starts to boil, remove from the heat and let it cool completely.

To make the Crust:
In a blender, blend the chocolate cookies, until crushed.  Combine the Cookie crumbs with the melted butter and cover the bottom of your pan with this mixture.

To make the Filling:
In a blender,  combine the rest of the ingredients.  Start by blending the cream cheese together with the heavy cream and eggs, then add in the sour cream, blend again for about a minute or two,  then add in the sugar, the flour and the vanilla extract, blend until well combined. (for about 2 more minutes)

Make the Pie:
Pour half the Cream Cheese Mixture into the pan, which is already covered with the cookie crumbs, then add in half of the strawberry Mallarme mixture, followed by the rest of the cream cheese mixture and the rest of the marmalade.  

Bake at 325ºF for 75 minutes.
After 75 minutes, turn off the oven, but don't remove the cheesecake from the oven, leave it there for another hour.

After another hour, remove the cheesecake from the oven, and let it cool completely before decorating it.

Make the Chocolate Sauce:
To make the Chocolate Sauce: Heat up half a cup of heavy cream, and once it's really hot, now add in the semisweet chocolate chips, whisk until all the chocolate chips are melted.  Let it cool a bit before using it.

Once the Cheesecake is cold. Now pour the Chocolate Sauce over the cheesecake, spread it on an even layer, make sure the whole surface of the cheesecake is well coated with the chocolate sauce.   Once it's done, place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

After 2 hours, the chocolate sauce on the cheesecake is already set, now you can serve it or you can finish decorating it.

I decorated my Cheesecake  with Chocolate balls all around the surface of the cheesecake and with melted Caramel, I put some writing right on the center of the cheesecake.  I also decorated the chocolate balls with the melted caramel and more melted semisweet chocolate.
