The most incredible cheesecake recipe on the internet.


2 cups chocolate Oreo cokie crumbs
4 tablespoons butter melted
½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 lbs cream cheese at room temperature
1 1/2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1/2 lb semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon Cocoa
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 and 3/4 cups sour cream
* NOTE that you need to save 1 cup of your sour cream will be put on a your topping. -...so when you are shopping you need to buy about 24oz of sour cream. ...or 1.5 pints for the whole recipe.


The Crust

Use an 11” springform or removable bottom pan.

In a bowl, mix crumbs with melted butter & cinnamon until lightly moist.

Spread mixture on bottom of pan, firmly press down on all sides.

The Cheesecake

Melt chocolate in a double boiler over hot water & let cool until luke warm.

Beat cream cheese thoroughly, scraping bowl often. 10 minues works so set a timer while you beat.

Add sugar & beat for 10 minutes, scraping bowl often.

Add eggs & mix only until blended.


Mix in cocoa, vanilla and melted chocolate – be sure mixer is running when adding chocolate –mix only until blended.

Mix in sour cream only until blended.

Fill prepared pan & bake at 250degrees F (120C)

Check doneness after 1 ½ hours. The cheesecake should seem a bit liquid in the center or they will be overdone.

The Topping

Refrigerate the cake when completely cool and keep in the refrigerator.

When ready, ice with a thick layer of sour cream.

*Note: Image shows just a dollop of the topping, but I like to ice the whole thing.
