Chocolate Velvet Cheesecake

What could make you say "Mmmm!" more than a chocolate cheesecake? For those that know me you know that I LOVE cheesecake (NO fruit in, on or around the cake, please!) and I am a darn good baker as well. Here's the recipe I tried this week and is my new favorite.

Chocolate Velvet Cheesecake
Jolene Worthington

Oreo cookie crumb crust, prepared (I smashed oreos and add a bit of butter then pressed into the spring form pan and froze it while I worked on the rest of the cake)
12 oz chocolate chips melted with a bit of butter
3 (8 oz) pkg of cream cheese
1 C sugar
3 eggs
2 C. sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

Beat cream cheese and sugar. Add vanilla, chocolate, mix well. Add sour cream. Beat in eggs one at a time until just blended (do not over beat—don’t want to mix in too much air).
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 300 degrees for about 45 minutes (DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR), turn off oven and let cake cool 1-2 hours in oven. Take out of oven and finish cooling before placing in refrigerator. Add toppings (caramel dip—found next to the apples in the produce aisle.) to cover cracks.

If you make one please let me know how you liked it!
