Choc Swirl Cheesecake

Ingredients

250g sweet plain biscuits

125g butter, melted

2 x 250g pkts cream cheese, slightly softened

1/2 caster sugar

4 eggs

1/2 cup thickened cream

125g dark cooking chocolate

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C and grease a springform pan. Crush biscuits well then pour into medium mixing bowl. Add melted butter and mis until combined. Transfer to prepared pan and use the back of a spoon to press evenly over the base. Place in the fridge until required.
  2. To make the filling, use an electric beater to beat together the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, until combined. Add cream and beat until combined. Pour mixture over biscuit base.
  3. Chop chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until melted and smooth. Drizzle filling with melted chocolate and use a skewer to make swirls. Bake on lowest shelf of oven for 50 minutes or until set. Turn oven off and leave cheesecake in oven with door ajar for 4 hours or until completely cooled. (This will help prevent it from cracking.)
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge for 1 hour to chill, then serve.
