Ingredients for crust:

  • 1-1/4 cups fine chocolate wafer crumbs (25 cookies, processed in food processor)
  • 1/4 cup (plus 2 Tbsp.) butter, melted

Ingredients for filling:

  • 4 cups (30 oz.) Sargento® Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half or whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or mint-flavored chocolate chips, divided

Directions:

  1. Begin by greasing the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Mix the crust ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Pour crust mix in the bottom of the pan and press in evenly to cover the pan. Bake the crust in preheated 350°F oven 10 minutes.
  2. Combine sugar, half-and-half, flour, ricotta, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl. Add eggs one at a time and stir with an electric mixer. When ingredients are thoroughly combined, fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Bake cheesecake in a preheated 350°F oven for an hour.
  3. Cool in oven with the oven door propped open for about 25 minutes and then refrigerate for 4 hours.
  4. Melt chocolate in the microwave for 3 minutes and drizzle it over the cake using a spoon. Serve with the chocolate warm or let cool and serve later!
