Rich Chocolate Cheesecake

Everybody (well at least MOST everybody) likes chocolate...then there is ME who loves both cheesecake AND chocolate, combine the 2 together and you get a little piece of scrumdidliumptious!
This dessert is very rich, but OH SO very good.
Proceed with caution-you might just become a Chocolate Cheesecake addict...it could happen you know.

Rich Chocolate Cheesecake
Crust:
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 melted butter

Combine all ingredient for crust into a bowl and mix well. Set aside 1 c of the mixture for later. Press the remaining crust mixture into a lightly greased 9x13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Filling:
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. vanilla
2 eggs
2/3 c. evaporated milk
1 (12 oz.) package chocolate chips (semi-sweet OR milk chocolate...your favorite)

Beat eggs, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until smooth. Slowly add evaporated milk and beat until well mixed. Microwave chocolate chips in a glass bowl for 1 minute then stir. Microwave and stir at 15 second intervals until smooth. Stir into cream cheese mixture and pour over hot crust. Sprinkle with the 1c. extra crust mixture. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until the center of cheesecake is set. Cool at room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
*Cut into small pieces as this is very rich....then that will give you more for later too....


Happy Cooking~
