Use a vegetable peeler to carefully peel thin strips of chocolate into curls to top this cheesecake.
1 3/4 cups (about 18) crushed creme-filled chocolate cookies
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter melted
1 cup white baking chips
3/4 cup sugar
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate or white baking bar, cut into curls or grated
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine cookie crumbs and butter in bowl. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes.
Melt morsels in bowl on Medium-high (70% power) 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring often, 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Cool 15 minutes or to room temperature.
Combine sugar, cream cheese and vanilla in bowl. Beat at high speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Add eggs; mix well. Gradually beat in melted white morsels.
Spread mixture over hot, partially baked chocolate crust. Continue baking 40-50 minutes or until just set 2 inches from edge of pan. Cool in pan on cooling rack. Loosen sides of cheesecake by running knife around inside of pan. Cover, refrigerate until firm. Remove side of pan.
Sprinkle chocolate curls over cheesecake before serving.

It says not to grease the bottom of the springform pan, I would rub some butter on the bottom so the crust edges don't stick when removing pieces of the cheesecake.
