Nothing beats a good old chocolate cheesecake recipe! A homemade vanilla wafer crust makes this crust especially delicious.
How To Make Heavenly Chocolate Cheesecake
Making the crust
Combine crushed cookies, almonds, sugar and butter in a medium-sized bowl. Mix well.
Press firmly onto the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch springform pan.
Making the filling
Microwave morsels in a medium-sized, microwave-safe bowl on medium-high or 70% power for 1 minute.
Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Set aside.
Sprinkle gelatin over milk in a small saucepan. Let stand for 1 minute.
Warm over low heat until gelatin is dissolved, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside.
Beat cream cheese, sour cream and melted chocolate in a large mixer bowl until fluffy.
Beat in gelatin mixture and almond extract. Fold in whipped cream.
Pour filling into the crust. Chill for about 3 hours or until firm.
Run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake and remove the side of the springform pan. Garnish as desired and serve.
