Chocolate Cheesecake

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE cheesecake!! It is my favorite dessert by far! For Mr. G's birthday, I made him a chocolate cheesecake with oreo crust. It was sooo good!! This recipe is sooo simple and it comes from my friend and fellow baker, Miss W. I just made a few adjustment to the recipe, but otherwise kept it in tack. Try it, it took no time to make.

Oreo Crust
13 oreos
2 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 cup of butter melted

1. Crush the oreos with a rolling pin or pulverize in a food processor until you have fine crumbs. Add sugar and salt and mix to combine. Drizzle the melted butter over the crumb mixture and mix. Press the wet crumbs into an 8" springform pan. Set aside.

Cheesecake filling:

24 oz of cream cheese, room temperature (3-8oz packages)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz can)
12 oz semi sweet chocolate, melted
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees

2. Beat the cream cheese until the mixture softens and is creamy. Add the milk and mix until just combined. Add melted chocolate and mix until combined.

3. Add one egg at a time and mix after each addition until just combined. Add the vanilla and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

4. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes or until the cheesecake is set. Turn off the oven and open the oven door and allow cheesecake to cool in the oven for 1 hour. Take it out of the oven and allow to cool for another hour. Refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight.
