chocolate dessert, no bake cheesecake
with filling (1 regular pack, 25 cookies)
good quality chocolate
(or about 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips)
heavy whipping cream
(24 oz, 3 packages), room temperature
In a food processor, process the butter and cookies until cookies are fine crumbs and the mixture starts to stick together.
Place a piece of parchment paper in between the bottom and the rim of a 9" springform pan (optional -- just helps to remove the cheesecake later).
Press the crust mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan and about 1/2" up the sides. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine chocolate and 1/2 cup cream. Microwave in 20-30 second intervals on high, stirring well each time, until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and melted chocolate, and beat on low speed until combined.
Add the remaining 1 cup cream. Beat on low until incorporated, then beat on high for 3-5 minutes, until thickened and fluffy (you are essentially whipping the cream, so it takes time!).
Spread into the prepared crust, cover, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Slice and serve with whipped cream or as desired.
*An 8" springform pan will work just fine -- you will just have a taller cheesecake.
