Filling: Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, mixing on low speed just until blended. Spoon 1-1/2 cups batter into small bowl; blend in melted chocolate. Add mint candies and food coloring to remaining batter. Pour 1/2 of the mint batter over crust. Using tablespoon, dollop 1/2 of the chocolate batter over mint batter layer; repeat layers. Cut through batter with knife several times to create marble effect.
