Chocolate Chip Cheesecake


  • 1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 24 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Combine chocolate wafer crumbs and butter and mix well. Press onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and bake for 10 minutes.

3. While the crust is baking, combine sugar, cream cheese, and flour, mixing at medium speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating well after each addition. Blend in sour cream, heavy cream, and vanilla. Gently stir in chocolate chips and pour onto the crust.

4. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 55 minutes or until cheesecake is set. Loosen the cake from the rim of the pan with a knife. Be sure the cheesecake is completely cooled before removing the rim of the pan.

5. Refrigerate for 6 hours before serving.

Tips for Baking the Perfect Cheesecake

Get all the proper supplies. Having a springform pan is essential when making cheesecake, so if you don't have one on hand, be sure you get one before starting this recipe. It helps the cheesecake slide out smoothly off the pan and prevents sticking.

Know your oven's temperature. It's important to note that all ovens vary in temperature. Have an idea of what that is for your oven so you don't undercook or overcook your cheesecake. This goes for all recipes, especially when it comes to baking.

Avoid peeking. It can be tempting to open the oven and take a peek to see how your cheesecake is coming along or to get in the delicious aromas. However, if you open the oven too soon, you can cause the cheesecake to crack on the top. Instead, turn on the oven light if you are eager to see the progress.

Get creative with toppings. Top your cheesecake with strawberries after it's cooled or even swirl a drizzle of warm jam or chocolate on top before setting in the oven. To make it even more eye-catching, add a fun design to the jam or chocolate swirls.
