How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare Chocolate Crust as directed. Increase oven temperature to 375°.

Step 2

Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 to 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

Step 3

Microwave whipping cream in a 1-cup microwave-safe measuring cup at HIGH 30 seconds or until very hot. Stir in coffee granules until completely dissolved. Cool coffee mixture slightly.

Step 4

Microwave chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 minute. Microwave 1 more minute, stirring at 15-second intervals. Add melted chocolate, vanilla, and coffee mixture to cream cheese mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended. Pour mixture into prepared Chocolate Crust.

Step 5

Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until edges are firm and center is still soft. Let cool to room temperature (about 1 hour); cover and chill 8 hours. Cut into squares. Garnish, if desired.

This is a nice dessert. A step up from regular brownies and easier at a party than serving slices of cheese cake. Not difficult to make if you follow the link to the crust. I topped mine with a few red candies to be more festive.

There are no instructions for how to make the crust- just a list of ingredients
