Chocolate Lover's Cheesecake

So I found I love cheesecake. I also love making it. This weekend I made some cheesecake with a chocolate twist. I got the recipe from one of my cook books.


  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 extra serving-size packaged graham cracker crumb crust (9 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450F.
  2. Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla. 
  4. Stir in 1 2/3 cups small chocolate chips.
  5. Pour into crust.
  6. Bake for ten minutes. Do not open the door.
  7. REduce temperature to 250F. Bake for an additional 30 minutes or until set.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool.
  9. Cover, and refrigerate until chilled.
  10. Place remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips and whipping cream ina  microwave-safe bowl. 
  11. Microwave at HIGH 20-30 seconds or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when sitrred.
  12. Allow to cool slightly and then spread over top of the cheesecake.
  13. Refrigerate to allow topping to set.
