what you need
  • Cheesecake:
  • 2 cups crushed chocolate graham crackers (about 18 crackers) or prepared graham cracker crust from store
  • 1/2 cup light butter, melted
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 4 packages (8 oz. each) 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur (Starbucks or Kahlua)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. instant coffee granules
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 bittersweet baking chocolate squares
  • Mocha Sauce:
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 2 tsp. light butter
  • 3 Tbsp. strong-brewed coffee (espresso works great)
make it
Stir together crushed graham crackers and melted butter; press mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add liqueur, vanilla, and coffee granules, beating at low speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears after each addition. Remove and reserve 1 cup cream cheese mixture. Pour remaining batter into prepared crust.

Microwave chocolate in a medium sized, microwave safe bowl until melted, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir reserved cream cheese mixture into melted chocolate, blending well. (Mixture will be thick.) Spoon mixture in lines on top of batter in pan; gently swirl with knife.

Bake at 325°F for 1 hour or until almost set. Turn oven off. Let cheesecake stand in oven, with door closed, 30 minutes. Remove cheesecake from oven, and gently run a knife around outer edge of cheesecake to loosen from sides of pan. (Do not remove side of pan.) Cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

Remove sides of springform pan. Serve with Mocha Sauce

Mocha Sauce:
Cook first 3 ingredients in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring often, 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in coffee. Serve warm.
