  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Using a blender or a food processor, finely chop 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips. Transfer ground chocolate to a mixing bowl. Add vanilla wafer crumbs, ground hazelnuts, 2 tablespoons white sugar, and melted butter or margarine. Mix until well combined. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
  3. Raise oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add 1 cup white sugar; mix well. Add the eggs and 3 tablespoons liqueur. Mix until well blended. Coarsely chop 1 cup of the semisweet chocolate chips, and stir the chocolate into the cream cheese mixture. Pour batter into the cooled crust.
  5. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 1 hour. Let cake cool in oven for 1 hour. Remove outer ring from pan; allow cake to cool completely.
  6. Melt 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips over hot (not boiling) water. Stir until smooth. Dip 13 hazelnuts into the chocolate, covering one-half of each nut. Shake off the excess chocolate. Place on a waxed-paper lined plate and chill until set.
  7. Stir the sour cream into the remaining melted chocolate and mix well. Add 1 tablespoon liqueur. Spread glaze on top of the cooled cheesecake. Garnish with chocolate-dipped hazelnuts.

Be warned, everyone will think you had this cake professionally made. It's very easy to make and everyone absolutely loved it. I recommend using a blender for all crushing. I already have three ...

I wavered between giving this recipe 4 stars or 5. Overall the cheesecake turned out fabulous and everyone loved it! My biggest problem with it is that there was too much semi-sweet chocolate f...

Great cheesecake. I had some fun, and used milk chocolate in the crust, semisweet chocolate in the filling and the glaze, and then drizzled it with dark chocolate. Check out the picture, it turn...

When I make it again, I'm probably going to use mini chocolate chips rather than bothering to chop up the larger ones. Other than that, a great recipe!

If you have never made a cheesecake, this is a great recipe for you! It doesn't require the daunting "water bath" that most cheesecakes require. I'm giving it a 5 because of the fairly easy pre...

Absolutely Fabulous. I really loved the crust (sans chocolate), I think I'll substitute this crust for any graham ones I come across. Besides omitting the chocolate from the crust, I also used K...

This was a great recipe. Made it for my niece's shower and everyone loved it. Easy to make and tasted like I worked very very hard.

I loveddd this cheesecake! And so did the people I made it for! I even added strawberries on top (see pic) to add a little extra flavor. It's my favorite cheesecake to make!
