3 8oz pkgs cream cheese-room temp
3/4 C sugar
3 eggs

1 heaping cup mini chocolate chips

Preparation Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 425 dgrees
Mix crust-form into pan-set aside

Mix cream cheese and sugar-beat for 3-4 minutes med to high speed, add eggs ONE at a time-continue to beat
Add vanilla

Fold in mini chocolate chips with spatula

Fill mold with batter-bake for 35 minutes @425 degrees
Turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake for another 35-45 minutes (insert toothpick and check to see if it is ready

After baking pull out of oven-rim the pan with a knife-let set for 30 minutes, release pan and plate. I usually cover with a chocolate spatter pattern (melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1 tblsp canola oil in microwave approx 30 sec-stir micro 15 additional sec. if needed) Take fork dip into chocolte mixture and fling across cake randomly.

Recipe Background

One Christmas I was laid up with surgery and needed to make some additional money-so I sold cheesecakes to family and friends for their holiday parties... You can omit the chocolate chips and use the batter as a base mixture, for Thanksgiving I add 1/4 cup more sugar and 1/2 can of pumpkin and viola-pumpkin cheesecake!
