Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

This premium dessert will be the highlight of your party!

“Cheesecake” - just the word
makes you wanna go
“ummmm...” Especially when
it’s this good.

You will need a good
springform pan - 9 or 10
inches. Get a quality one
that’s well made.

Perfect to make a day or two
ahead of time - and important
to let it cure in the oven.

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
24 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Combine crumbs,butter and 2 tablespoons
sugar. Firmly press mixture into bottom
and up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan.

Melt chocolate chips in top of a double
boiler over hot water, not over direct heat.

Combine cream cheese, eggs and 1 cup sugar
in a mixing bowl until smooth and creamy.
Pour in chocolate mixture, blend well. Add
1/2 cup sour cream, flour, vanilla. Blend
until smooth. Pour into crust.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350° for 60
minutes or until filling is firm. Turn oven off.
Cure the cheesecake 1 hour with the oven door
shut, then chill overnight in the refrigerator.

We like to garnish this with fresh fruit,
whatever is in season that looks great. Mint
leaves are a nice touch as well.

TIP: You can cut this cake and plate up the pieces before your guests arrive if you have enough room in your fridge, and if you can resist swiping one before dinner. Good Luck!
