Mocha-Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Strawberries



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For crust, in a medium bowl combine crushed cookies and melted butter. Press mixture evenly onto the bottom and 1-3/4 inches up the side of an ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Chill while preparing filling.
  2. For filling, in a small heavy saucepan combine chopped semisweet chocolate and unsweetened chocolate. Cook over low heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, 1-1/4 cups sugar, flour, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. With mixer running, slowly add melted chocolate, beating on low speed until combined. Add eggs all at once. Beat on low speed just until combined. Stir coffee crystals into milk until dissolved. Stir milk mixture and miniature chocolate pieces into cream cheese mixture.
  4. Pour filling into crust-lined pan. Place springform pan in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the center appears nearly set when gently shaken.
  5. Cool in springform pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Loosen crust from side of pan; cool for 30 minutes more. Remove side of pan; cool completely on rack. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine strawberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, and orange peel. Cover and chill for up to 4 hours.
  7. To serve, top cheesecake with strawberry mixture and, if desired, whipped cream.
