Yesterday I mentioned in my post (My Morning) that I helped Bethany make a Fudge Truffle Cheesecake. My online friend, Under Southern Skies , asked me to share the recipe, and since it is very good I thought I would oblige her. Like most cheesecake recipes, it is very rich so a little piece will satisfy. I hope you enjoy it!
Fudge Truffle Cheesecake
1 1/2 c vanilla wafer crumbs*
1/2 c 10x sugar
1/3 c cocoa
1/3 c melted butter
3 (8 oz.) cream cheese softened
1 can (14oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 c (12 oz.) simi-sweet chocolate chips melted
2 tsp. vanilla
Combine all crust ingredients and press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch spring form pan. Chill.
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add milk. Beat until smooth. Add melted chips, eggs, and vanilla. Mix well. Pour into crust and bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 5 minutes. The center will jiggle slightly when you take it out of the oven. Cool for 15 minutes. Carefully run a knife between crust and sides of pan. Cool for 3 hours at room temperature. Chill overnight. Serve it with cool whip if desired.
