Ingredients:

  • CRUST
  • 32 (2 inch) crisp NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Chocolate Chip Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted (we recommend LAND O LAKES® Butter)
  • FILLING
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (we recommend LAND O LAKES®)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 oz. NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar, melted per label directions
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Lightly grease 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

FOR CRUST:
STIR
crushed cookies and butter in medium bowl. Press onto bottom of prepared baking pan.

BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until crust is set.

FOR FILLING:
COMBINE
sugar and cream cheese in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla extract; continue beating until well mixed.

PLACE 1 cup batter in medium bowl; stir in chocolate. Pour white batter over crust. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate batter randomly over white batter.

HEAT jam in small, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) 30 to 60 seconds stirring until slightly melted. Drop spoonfuls of raspberry jam over batter. Pull through batters with knife for marbled effect. (DO NOT OVER SWIRL.)

BAKE for 50 to 55 minutes or until center of cheesecake jiggles slightly when gently shaken. (DO NOT OVER BAKE.) Cheesecake may crack on top and continue to set as it cools. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Fill in cracks with raspberry jam, if desired. Cover; refrigerate until serving time (up to 1 day). Cut into squares. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves, if desired.

NOTE: To crush cookies, place cookies in large, resealable plastic food bag. Use rolling pin to finely crush cookies. For easy cutting of bars, frequently dip sharp knife in hot water; wipe with paper towel.

    Cheesecake to take to a potluck or for guests don't get much better than this. You can cut into larger or smaller sizes depending on your need.

    the best!

    PAT BENNETT from DACULA, GA

    Made these yesterday for daughter to take to office with a chocaholic boss. They were gone within an hour - SO rich and chocolate-y and attractive, too. Instead of the chocolate chip cookies for the base, I used the crushed chocolate "famous wafers" - yummmm! They did take a little longer than I expected to assemble, but it wasn't bad.

    Absolutely Delicious

    Janet Keller from SAN ANTONIO, TX

    These were as delicious as they looked in the picture. I made them when my son visited our house. They disappeared very quickly and he even asked for the recipe! I know the recipe is a keeper when my son asks me for a recipe.

    Easier Than it Looks

    Kristi Wells-Bevis from OCEANSIDE, CA

    Well, this was my first cheesecake ever. It was so much easier than I anticipated and, boy, did it taste good. Since I have a small family I made it smaller by using 2/3 of each ingredient and used a store-bought 9" graham cracker crust instead of the cookie crust that's called for. My husband is crazy for chocolate and raspberries so I earned some REAL Brownie Points with him on this one.

  •  Star(s)

    Very Good

    Angie Merkiel from Saginaw, MI

    These turned out very good and I got a lot of compliments, even from my husband who doesn't really like cheesecake. I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust and it was delicious.

    My roommate and I made this recipe one boring night in college and we ate about half the pan that night. Since then I look for excuses to make it it's so good! By far the best and easiest cheesecake recipe. And even though I am a die hard graham cracker crust fan the crust in this dessert is fantastic!

    I've been busy this week trying the recipes I got off here last week. This is one I will be making often. Chocolate & Raspberry are one of my favorite combinations. I only got one piece because I made the mistake of telling my neighbor about it. Just have to make another one real soon.
