Chocolate Lover’s Cheesecake

August 20, 2018

Kevin’s favorite game show is “Wheel of Fortune.”  It’s not every day that a contestant who makes it to the bonus round, actually solves the puzzle to win the grand prize.  So it is the same with cooking new recipes.  Not every recipe is worthy of grand prize recognition; however, this dessert is. This cheesecake is beyond amazing!  I am so thankful Kevin requested that we make a cheesecake this week.  We had never made a chocolate one.  After tasting this cake, we have no desire to try any other recipe for a chocolate cheesecake.  Kevin’s version of this cheesecake comes from Wheel of Fortune Collectible Cookbook.  


1 (14.3 oz) pkg chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed

1/4 stick butter, melted

4 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened

1 1/4 c. sugar

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

2 eggs

1/2 c. sour cream

3/4 c. flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.  In a medium bowl, mix crushed cookies and melted butter until well combined.  Press into bottom and halfway up sides of pan.  Chill until ready to use.  In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar just until smooth.  Beat in remaining ingredients until well combined.  Gently fold in the cup of chocolate chips.  Spoon batter into crust.  Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until firm.  Remove from oven and let cool 2-3 hours at room temperature.  Remove sides of springform pan; cover and chill at least 6 hours before serving.  (Chilling for that length of time is crucial to taste.)
