My son orders cheesecake, whenever the opportunity for dessert arises in a restaurant. So I thought I would surprise him with this tasty treat after dinner one night.


2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups mini, semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 chocolate graham cracker crust
2 tablespoons cream

Heat oven to 450F.
Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl with a mixer, until well blended. Add gas and vanilla, beat well. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips, pour into crust.
Bake for 10 minutes. Without opening oven door, reduce temperature to 250F. Continue baking for 30 minutes or just until set. Remove from oven to a wire rack. Cool completely.
Place remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips and cream in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 to 40 seconds or just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
Cool slightly, spread over top of cheese pie.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until topping is set.
