Ingredients

1-1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafers
6 tablespoons butter, melted
3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
4 sq. (1 oz. each) semisweet chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon butter


For crust, in a bowl combine chocolate wafer crumbs and melted butter. Press crumb mixture firmly on bottom and 1-3/4 inches up sides of a 9-inch springform pan.



For filling, in a large mixer bowl beat cream cheese till creamy. Combine sugar, flour and salt; stir into the cream cheese mixture. Add eggs all at once. Beat just till combined. DO NOT OVERBEAT. Stir in the 4 squares melted chocolate, milk and vanilla until combined. Turn into crumb-lined pan.



Bake in a 325ºF oven for 60 minutes or till center appears set. Remove from oven; cool 15 minutes. Loosen sides of pan. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.



In a small saucepan over low heat melt the 1 square semisweet chocolate and butter. Drizzle in lattice design atop cheesecake. Chill till chocolate is set.
