Chocolate Cheesecake

I have been on a chocolate kick lately and my family was requesting cheesecake, so the answer was easy... Chocolate Cheesecake!  For those of you who know me, you should know that I love the Lion House Cookbook.  It's kind of my go-to place for all these yummy type of recipes.  We love the Lion House Cheesecake!  So, their chocolate Cheesecake could only be better, right? Oh.... it is divine! 

So many times, cheesecake recipes seem difficult.  This one is not difficult at all!  It came together so quickly and we couldn't wait to get a taste of it!  It was well worth the wait of the cooling time! It has just the right amount of chocolate!  We like it with chocolate syrup and whipping cream!


Chocolate Cheesecake
Lion House Bakery
From Cupboard to Cupboard
printable recipe 

1/2 (1-pound) package of Oreo Cookies
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
2 cups sour cream
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Crush whole Oreo cookies(I used my food processor), including frosting centers, to make 2 cups of fine crumbs.  Press evenly onto bottom and sides of 10-inch springform pan. 

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; gradually add sugar, then add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in vanilla and chocolate syrup.  Pour filling into crust.  Bake 55 minutes.

When cheesecake is almost finished baking, beat sour cream with a wire whisk; add sugar and vanilla and mix well.  Spread on top of cheesecake and return to oven.  Bake 10 more minutes.  Cool before removing sides from springform pan.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Make 10 to 12 servings.

Note:  Cheesecake can be baked, cooled, and frozen for an easy dessert later!
