The most incredible cheesecake recipe on the internet.
2 cups chocolate Oreo cokie crumbs
4 tablespoons butter melted
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 lbs cream cheese at room temperature
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 lb semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon Cocoa
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 and 3/4 cups sour cream
* NOTE that you need to save 1 cup of your sour cream will be put on a your topping. -...so when you are shopping you need to buy about 24oz of sour cream. ...or 1.5 pints for the whole recipe.
Use an 11” springform or removable bottom pan.
In a bowl, mix crumbs with melted butter & cinnamon until lightly moist.
Spread mixture on bottom of pan, firmly press down on all sides.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler over hot water & let cool until luke warm.
Beat cream cheese thoroughly, scraping bowl often. 10 minues works so set a timer while you beat.
Add sugar & beat for 10 minutes, scraping bowl often.
Add eggs & mix only until blended.
DO NOT OVERBEAT AFTER EGGS ARE ADDED
Mix in cocoa, vanilla and melted chocolate – be sure mixer is running when adding chocolate –mix only until blended.
Mix in sour cream only until blended.
Fill prepared pan & bake at 250degrees F (120C)
Check doneness after 1 ½ hours. The cheesecake should seem a bit liquid in the center or they will be overdone.
Refrigerate the cake when completely cool and keep in the refrigerator.
When ready, ice with a thick layer of sour cream.
*Note: Image shows just a dollop of the topping, but I like to ice the whole thing.
