cheesecake, dark chocolate, dessert, kahlua, recipe
3/4cupsdark chocolate(I used Ghirardelli Intense Dark)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Chocolate Wafer Crust
Place about half a box of chocolate wafers in a large resealable zippered bag and roll over it with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs. Measure out 1-1/2 cups and mix with softened butter and sugar. Press into the bottom of a springform pan and set aside.
Chocolate Cheesecake Filling
To make cheesecake filling, beat cream cheese until creamy. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, sugar and salt and mix thoroughly. Add sour cream and blend until smooth.
In a small saucepan, melt dark chocolate pieces, butter and Kahlua until smooth. Pour into filling mixture then add slowly to cream cheese mixture, beating until smooth and creamy.
Pour filling onto prepared crust and place in oven.
Bake 35 minutes, or just until starting to set, then turn oven off, open door slightly, and leave in oven an additional 30 minutes. Remove from oven, run knife around edges to loosen then let cool 1 hour on wire rack. Remove outer pan and refrigerate for 2 or more hours or overnight to set completely.
Chocolate Kahlua Sauce:
Melt dark chocolate, butter and heavy cream in a microwave safe measuring cup in 30 second increments, stirring well after each. Cook until almost all chocolate is melted then stir to melt remaining pieces (should only take 1 or 2 cycles). Add Kahlua, stir, and drizzle over top of cake.
Decorate with fruit and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream just prior to serving.
