  •3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, room temperature
  •1 cup sour cream, room temperature
  •1 cup granulated sugar
  •3 large eggs, room temperature
  •1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  •⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
  •1teaspoon unsalted butter, room temperature


  •⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
  •2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar

How To Make It:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, wrap the bottom of the spring form pan with heavy tin foil.

2. Butter or spray with a non stick spray a 9-inch springform pan and set aside.

3. In a medium sized bowl combine the oreo crumbs and melted butter. Press the crumbs evenly over the bottom of the pan. Cover and refrigerate while you make the filling.

4. Melt the chopped chocolate and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a large bowl beat the cream cheese and sour cream on medium low speed, until smooth.

5. Gradually beat in the sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and the melted chocolate and beat until fully incorporated.

6. Remove the crust from the refrigerator and pour in the filling.

7. Place the cheesecake pan on a larger baking pan, fill with an inch to two inches of hot water, and place in the oven.

8. Bake for about 50 - 60 minutes or until firm around edges but the center of the cheesecake will still look a little wet and wobbly. Remove from oven and run a knife or spatula around the inside edge of pan to loosen the cake.

9. Let cool and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

10. Heat ⅓ cup of heavy cream and butter in a small saucepan over medium-high until just boiling.

11. Pour over chopped chocolate in a small heatproof bowl, and let stand until chocolate melts, then stir until smooth.

12. Cool slightly and then pour over cheesecake. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

13. Pour ⅔ cup of heavy whipping cream into the cold bowl, slowly add the powdered sugar and whisk on high speed until medium to stiff peaks form. 
Add the whipped cream in a piping bag, and pipe the decorative swirls on cheesecake top using a large open star tip.

14. Garnish with Maraschino cherries and chocolate curls

15. Slice and serve! Store in the fridge.

16. ENJOY!!
