Hershey's Chocolate Cheesecake





This recipie is not for the light of heart-it is rich and creamy, and you must be a chocoholic to really appreciate and enjoy it! (You've been warned.)


INGREDIENTS:

2 Oreo Cookie Crusts (this can also make one springform pie. Just make your fav. crust)

1 and 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1 pkg (8 oz) plus 3 oz cream cheese softened (11 oz total)

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup butter softened

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup heavy or whipping cream

(plus 1 cup whipping cream for topping-optional)


DIRECTIONS:

Melt chocolate chips and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar. Add butter and beat until smooth. Blend in vanilla. Beat in melted chocolate all at once. In another bowl, whip cream until stiff. Gently fold into the chocolate mixture. Spoon into crusts. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour or so. Whip the cream for topping, and spread on top of the cheesecakes. Keep in refrigerator until all set up. I like to add cocoa powder or chocolate shavings to the top. Like I said above, you can use two regular pie crust sizes, or you can use crumbs to make your own crust in a 9" springform pan. It is way yummy and way rich! I hope you like it.
