  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 24 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
