Chocolate Cheesecake By Naomi


1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups chocolate wafer crumbs

3 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk (300 ml)
8 squares semi-sweet chocolate, melted
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

3/4 cup whipping cream
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar

Combine butter and chocolate wafer crumbs (I had to crush the wafers in a bag). Press into the bottom of a 9" springform pan.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese (I let the cream cheese sit out and become soft-room temperature) until fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat until smooth.

Melt chocolate over a double boiler.

Add chocolate, eggs (1 at a time) and vanilla. Mix well. Pour over crust.

Bake for 1 hour and 5 minutes at 300 degrees F. Cool to room temperature and then chill until serving.

Stir cream, chocolate, and sugar in medium saucepan over low heat until smooth. Cool slightly. Pour over center of cheesecake (you want a smooth top). Chill until topping is set, about 1 hour.

To serve you release the sides of the springform pan. Transfer cake to platter (using a warm knife helps). I opted to not decorate the top with chocolate curls though you may want to. Let stand 2 hours at room temperature before serving.
