Ingredients

1 cup Graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups approx chocolate

1 1/2 lbs (3 containers) of cream cheese

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup sour cream

6 ounces (3/4 cup) chocolate

3 ounces (just over 1/4 cup) whipping cream/heavy cream

Directions

Crust: (this one I just ballpark and usually it needs a bit more crumbs then that)

1 cup Graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup melted butter

Mix together and pat down in a 9"-10" springform pan

=========

Melt in a double boiler or stainless bowl over a pot of water

1 1/2 cups approx chocolate (I have done this with expensive chocolate and cheap chocolate both are just as good)

Cool it

==========

Beat

1 1/2 lbs (3 containers) of cream cheese until smooth.

Add & beat slowly after each:

1 cup sugar

the cooled chocolate

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 F and bake for approx 1 hour

Cool it slowly...so at that hour mark shut off heat and open the oven door a bit so it cools slowly. It will probably end up cracking a bit but not as much as if you took it out right away.

Glaze:

6 ounces (3/4 cup) chocolate

3 ounces (just over 1/4 cup) whipping cream/heavy cream

I will usually also add either an orange extra or a bit of booze...creme de mint, triple sec...whatever I feel like at the time)

In a small pot cook together till smooth over a low heat. Pour over the cake before it is completely cool.

Refrigerate.
