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.

From the Test Kitchen*
  • If using a 10-inch springform pan, use 1-3/4 cups crushed chocolate wafers (about 21 cookies) and 7 tablespoons butter, melted, for the crust.
