Creamy Chocolate Cheesecake
The kids spent the night and Papa and Moo-Moo's, so my husband and I decided we needed to celebrate with some chocolate!! hahaha I had a few ingredients laying around, and this is what became of them! You will definitely need some fresh coffee handy for this one, Dunkin' Donuts coffee, if you're serious about REALLY enjoying it, LOL Enjoy!!!
20 chocolate sandwich cookies
3 tblsp. melted butter
1 (8 oz.) brick cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup baking cocoa (unsweetened)
Grind cookies in food processor to size of bread crumbs. Add melted butter and pulse until combined. Press mixture into 8 or 9 in. pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. Set aside.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar until completely combined and smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and sour cream, and beat until smooth. Add cocoa, and beat on low until combined, then beat on high until silky and smooth. Poor cream cheese mixture into crust and bake on 350 for about 30 min. or until center is almost completely set. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight, OR place in freezer (after it comes to room temp.) for about an hour. Serve cold. This is a very rich dessert, so serving sizes are small! One cheesecake should serve about 10-12.
