1 1/2 c. finely crushed chocolate wafers
1/3 c. melted butter
3 (8 oz.) pkgs. softened cream cheese
(I use light cream cheese)
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. vanilla-flavored pieces, melted
Crust: Stir together crushed wafers and butter. Press mixture evenly
over the bottom and 1 3/4 inch up sides of 9 inch springform pan.
Filling: In large bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, chocolate, flour
and vanilla until well mixed. Add eggs all at once. Beat with
electric mixer on low speed until just mixed. Do not overbeat. Stir
in milk. Pour filling into crust. Bake in 350 degree oven about 50
minutes or until center appears nearly set when gently shaken. Cool
on wire rack 5-10 minutes. Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan. Cool
30 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Cover and chill for 4-24 hours.
Pipe melted vanilla flavored pieces decoratively atop cheesecake.
