Learn How it Works...
1 (9-ounce) package (2 cups) chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1 cup sugar
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1/3 to 1/2 cup Irish cream liqueur
3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, whipped, if desired
Chocolate curls, if desired
Heat oven to 375°F. Wrap outside of 9-inch springform pan with aluminum foil. Lightly grease inside of pan.
Stir together all crust ingredients in bowl until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom and 1 inch up sides of prepared pan; set aside.
Combine sugar and cream cheese in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Continue beating, adding 1 egg at a time, until well mixed. Do not overbeat. Stir in liqueur.
Combine 1/2 cup chocolate chips and flour in bowl; gently stir into cream cheese mixture. Pour filling into crust. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over batter.
Place cheesecake onto center rack of oven. Place pan of warm water on rack below cheesecake to prevent cracking. Bake 40-45 minutes or until center is set and firm to touch. Cool 10 minutes.
Loosen side of cheesecake by running knife around inside of pan. Cover; refrigerate at least 3 hours.
Garnish with whipped cream and top with chocolate curls, if desired.
