How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/4 cup ground almonds, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle flour mixture into an 8-inch square metal baking pan lined with parchment paper and coated with baking spray; lightly press mixture into bottom of pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden. Cool crust completely on a wire rack.

Step 3

Reduce oven temperature to 325°.

Step 4

Place cream cheeses in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add sugar, yogurt, vanilla, and dash of salt; beat at low speed until combined. Add egg; beat 1 minute or until well combined. Pour mixture over cooled crust. Place chocolate chips and milk in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH for 30 seconds or until melted, stirring after 15 seconds; stir mixture until smooth. Dollop chocolate mixture by the spoonful over cheesecake mixture; swirl together using the tip of a knife. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons chopped almonds. Bake at 325° for 30 minutes or until almost set in the middle. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or up to overnight.
