Cookie Dough - This will later be used in the cheesecake. The recipe for this dough is from a bag of Ghiradelli Chocolate Chips.
Ingredients

  • 1 bag (11.5 oz) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 6 tbsp (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 bag (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. In a double boiler over hot water, melt the bittersweet chocolate chips and the butter.
  2. In  a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick. Stir in the chocolate mixture.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Stir into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Gently mix in the semi-sweet chocolate chips
  5. Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into two logs, each 2 inches in diameter and about 8 inches long. The dough will be very soft. Use the plastic wrap to hold the dough in a log shape. Wrap the dough tightly in the plastic wrap. Place the logs into the fridge for at least one hour or until firm.
This cheesecake recipe is from http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Two-Tone-Cheesecake I have altered it to be all chocolate.
