Yield: 12 - 16 pieces


  • 1-1/2 cups crushed (apprx. 18 cookies) chocolate sandwich cookies

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. While processing cookies, drizzle butter to combine. Press firmly into bottom of 10-inch spring-form pan. Bake 10 minutes. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Blend in chocolate. Pour over crust.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

I garnished my cheesecake pieces with a dollop of whipped cream. Then I lightly shook cocoa powder and powdered sugar over cheesecake and plate.
