  • 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature (I use Philadelphia)
  • 3 Tbs. natural, unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
  • 1/4 tsp. table salt
  • 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 jar butterscotch topping

Directions

For the crust

  • Turn on your microwave and pre-heat for 400°F.
  • Meanwhile, add cookie crumbs, sugar, and melted butter to a medium bowl and mix well until the mixture is properly moist.
  • Empty the mix into the pan and press firmly using a flat-based coffee mug.
  • Once it’s done, bake it for 6-8 minutes before leaving it on a wire rack.

Filling and Baking

  • For making the filling of cheesecake, pour sour cream, vanilla, and coffee granules in a bowl and stir well until the coffee liquefies properly.
  • Melt the chocolate as suggested in the tip below.
  • Next, blend cream cheese, melted chocolate, eggs, sour cream, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt to get a smooth and fluffy mix.
  • Once you’re done, take the prepared crust and spread an even layer of butterscotch and the filling over it.
  • Again bake the crust at 300°F for an hour.
  • Finally, toss the prepared cake on a rack, let it cool down a bit, and put it into a refrigerator overnight.

Quick Tip – Melt chocolate in the microwave

Instead of a double boiler, use this method to melt chocolate quickly. First, cut the chocolate into fine pieces, put them in a microwave-friendly bowl, and heat until you get completely melted chocolate.
