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
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
