Ingredients

  • 9 oz chocolate wafer cookies
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 bars (8 oz each) cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 c sour cream
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate, melted

Ganache

  • 1/2 c heavy cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare a 9-inch spring form pan.

  3. Wipe out bowl and blade of food processor or use mixer. Combine cream cheese, honey, and salt; blend until smooth. Add eggs, sour cream, and chocolate; blend filling until smooth, scrape down sides and continue mixing.  Taste and add honey for desired sweetness. 
  4. Pour filling into cooled crust. Bake just until set, 1 hour.
  5. Let the cake cool completely (in the oven if possible), cover loosely and refrigerate (at least 6 hours, up to overnight).
  6. Prepare Ganache: In a small saucepan, bring cream to a boil. Remove from heat, and add chocolate. Stir until melted, then set aside until thickened, 2 to 5 minutes.
  7. Unmold cheesecake. Spread ganache in center of cheesecake; let set before serving.
