Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

This chocolate series would be incomplete without including one of the best – and my favorite – chocolate recipes.

This recipe for chocolate chip cheesecake comes from my Uncle Phil. I am so glad he shared this recipe with us! I don’t make any other cheesecake than this one.

It’s so good that I regularly request this instead of birthday cake. It’s so good that my godson requests this instead of birthday cake, once I made it for him! A little slice with do you because it is a rich and decadent treat.

This is a simple recipe – as far as cheesecakes go. Plus, with an Oreo crust, chocolate chips through the cheesecake and sprinkled on top, there is plenty of chocolate in here to go around.

If you like cheesecake, this is one recipe you’ll want to bake sooner rather than later!

This is the only cheesecake recipe I will make! It has the perfect amount of chocolate chips, with a decadent oreo crust. Give this recipe a try and you'll see why it's a family favorite!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups finely crushed Oreos (about 17 cookies)
1/4 cup margarine, melted
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup mini-chocolate chips
1 teaspoon flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Place Oreos inside a plastic grocery bag. Using a rolling pin, smash the Oreos until they are finely ground. Pour the margarine over the crumbs. Pat firmly on the bottom of a springform pan.

In mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

In a small bowl, toss together 1/2 cup chocolate chips with the flour to coat the chips. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom so your chocolate chips are evenly distributed throughout the cheesecake. Stir into the cheesecake mixture.

Pour the cheesecake mixture over the crust in the springform pan. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips evenly on top. Bake 1 hour or until cake springs back with lightly touched.

Cool to room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Remove the side of the pan. Cut and serve. For an extra decadent treat, top with hot fudge or homemade chocolate syrup – which is almost fudge like! It serves 12 or more depending on how thick you cut the slices.
