Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

My mom posted this picture over at her blog, Hospitality Lane, and I guess some of you wanted the recipe so here it is! (It is really yummy, I got the recipe from, Thank you!!)

Chocolate Cheesecake 1

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 can cherry pie filling

1. Prepare crumb crust by combining crumbs, butter (or margarine), and 2 tablespoons sugar. Press mixture into the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 9 inch spring form pan. Refrigerate.

2. Melt chocolate chips in top of a double boiler over hot water, set aside.

3. Beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. Blend in eggs. Gradually pour in chocolate, beating on low speed until well-blended. Add 1/2 cup sour cream, flour, and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Pour into prepared crust.

4. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55-60 minutes or until filling is firm. Turn oven off. Cool cheesecake 1 hour without opening the oven door. Cool completely. Chill several hours or overnight. Top with cherry pie filling and sprinkle on some chocolate chips and you're done!

It's really good, even though it's a bit trickier to make than some other cheesecakes. Enjoy!!!
