Chocolate-Irish Cream Cheesecake

Ingredients
1 1/2
cups finely crushed chocolate wafers (about 18 cookies)*
6
tablespoons butter, melted*
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
3
8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1
8 ounce carton dairy sour cream
1
cup sugar
1
8 ounce package semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
3
eggs
1/2
cup Irish cream liqueur
2
tablespoons whipping cream or milk
2
teaspoons vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. For crust, in a medium bowl, combine crushed chocolate wafers, melted butter, and cinnamon; toss gently to mix. Press mixture onto the bottom and up the side of a 9- or 10-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  2. For filling, in a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and melted chocolate. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, stir in eggs just until combined. Stir in liqueur, whipping cream or milk, and vanilla.
  3. Pour filling into the crust-lined pan. Place springform pan in shallow baking pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until center appears nearly set when gently shaken.
  4. Cool in springform pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Using a small sharp knife, loosen from side of pan. Cool for 30 minutes more. Remove side of springform pan. Cool for 1 hour. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours. Makes 16 servings.
