Tuxedo Cheesecake

Tuxedo CheesecakeNo need to wait for formal gatherings to serve this cheesecake—but it is something special. The combination of white and dark chocolates make this dessert scrumptiously divine.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups crushed creme-filled chocolate cookies
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

1 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 large eggs
2 ounces NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars, or premier white baking bars, made into curls

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Crust: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Toss cookie crumbs and butter together in medium bowl. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. For Filling: Microwave morsels in small, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth; cool to room temperature.
  4. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs; gradually beat in melted white morsels. Spread over chocolate crust.
  5. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until edges are set but center still moves slightly. Cool in pan on wire rack; refrigerate until firm. Remove side of springform pan.
  6. Sprinkle chocolate curls over cheesecake before serving.
