My husband said I needed to put a topping on it as it is the icing on the cake. <br><img style="width: 260px; height: 195px;" src="http://cakestobake.com/article_images/0952f025-48f3-6229-037b-000079c3fae4_img_9243_article.jpg"><br><br>A side view<br><br><img style="width: 234px; height: 176px;" src="http://cakestobake.com/article_images/432c5b9a-5454-8fa8-b2fe-000022094173_img_9249_article.jpg"><br>This recipe is a combination of two recipes. Here is the recipe that I used for the crust <a href="http://allrecipes.com/recipe/brownie-bottom-cheesecake/Detail.aspx">http://allrecipes.com/recipe/brownie-bottom-cheesecake/Detail.aspx</a><br>This is the inspiration for the <a href="http://cakestobake.com/articles/kml9876/TwoToneCheesecake.html">cheesecake filling</a>. I then added Kahula until I reached the desired taste.<br><br>I made this cheesecake for a coworker of my husband. So I sadly will not get to taste test it and find out if it needs any tweaking. Though I know the person receiving it will be sure to let me know what needs to be changed about the recipe. He is actually the one who requested this particular combination. <br><br>According to my husband's coworkers this cheesecake was given rave reviews. One said it was the best cheesecake I have made yet. Another said the Kahlua flavor was just right but to add a caramel swirl or caramel chips on top. When I make this again I will def try that as I as usual did not get to try a piece. Apparently it was devoured at lunch time. <br><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Ingredients</span><br><br><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Brownie Bottom</span><br><ul><li>4 (1 ounce squares) of unsweetened baking chocolate</li><li>1/2 cup of butter</li><li>1 1/2 cups of sugar</li><li>2 eggs</li><li>1/4 cup of milk</li><li>1 teaspoon of vanilla</li><li>1 cup of flour</li><li>1/2 teaspoon of salt</li></ul><br><br><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Filling</span><br><ul><li>4 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened</li><li> 1 3/4 cups of granulated sugar</li><li> 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream</li><li> 4 eggs lightly beaten</li><li>3/4 cup of Kahlua (I used Kahlua Especial) </li></ul><br><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Topping</span><br>4 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate that has been finely chopped<br>1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream<br><br><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Directions</span><br><br style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">Brownie Bottom<br></span><ol><li><span class="plaincharacterwrap break">Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. </span></li><li><span class="plaincharacterwrap break">In a small pan over low heat melt the chocolate and the butter.

Three types of chocoalte make this a triple chocolate cheesecake
   


Ingredients

Crust
  • 1/2 stick (4tbsp) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (about 27 Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers or 20 Oreo Cookies finely crushed)

Filling
  • 3 bricks (8oz each) cream cheese softened. Note you can use 1/3 less-fat (Neufchatel) cream cheese to make a "healthier" version
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream. Note you can use reduced fat sour cream to make a "healthier" version.
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz milk chocolate
  • 4 oz white chocolate
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate

Chocolate Glaze
  • 3 oz bittersweet baking chocolate
  • 2 tbsp stick butter
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  1. Place a sheet of foil on oven rack to catch any drips. Heat oven to 350 degrees. You will need an 8 * 3in springform pan coated with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Crust - In a small bowl, rub butter into crumbs until crumbs are evenly moistened. Press firmly over bottom of pan. Bake 8-10 minutes on foil sheet until set. Cool on rack. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  3. Filling - Beat cream cheese, sugar, and cornstarch in a large bowl with mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl several times with a spatula. With mixer on low speed beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then sour cream, and vanilla just until blended.
  4. Divide the batter evenly (about 2 cups each) among 3 medium bowls. Melt the chocolates separately. Stir milk chocolate into 1 bowl of batter, white chocolate into another, and semisweet into a third bowl. Spread milk chocolate batter in prepared crust in an even layer. Carefully spoon white chocolate batter over milk chocolate layer to cover. Gently smooth. Spoon semisweet chocolate batter over white chocolate to layer. Bake 45 minutes, or until center still jiggles slightly when shaken. Immediately transfer to a wire rack and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  5. Glaze - melt the bittersweet baking chocolate, butter, and corn syrup over low heat. When melted together pour over cooled cheesecake and allow to set.
