How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together crushed graham crackers and melted butter; press mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°.

Step 3

Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add liqueur, vanilla, and coffee granules, beating at low speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears after each addition.

Step 4

Remove and reserve 1 cup cream cheese mixture. Pour remaining batter into prepared crust.

Step 5

Microwave chocolate in a medium-size, microwave-safe bowl 1 minute or until melted, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir reserved 1 cup cream cheese mixture into melted chocolate, blending well. (Mixture will be thick.) Spoon mixture in lines on top of batter in pan; gently swirl with a knife.

Step 6

Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until almost set. Turn oven off. Let cheesecake stand in oven, with door closed, 30 minutes. Remove cheesecake from oven, and gently run a knife around outer edge of cheesecake to loosen from sides of pan. (Do not remove sides of pan.) Cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

Step 7

Remove sides of springform pan. Serve with Mocha Sauce.

Step 8

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Kahlúa for coffee liqueur.
