Ingredients

1 1/4 cups Graham Wafer crumbs
(I use the Oreo crumbs for the chocolate and Honey crumbs for the white chocolate)
1/4 cup of melted butter


3 packages of Cream Cheese, softened. (I microwave for a few seconds to soften up)
3/4 cup of sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla (another one if you like vanilla)
2 tsp almond extract if making white chocolate
170 g or there abouts of white chocolate or dark chocolate chips


Combine crumbs and butter and stir until moistened.


Press into 9" springform pan to cover bottom.


Melt chocolate chips with a little milk (suggest you use non-stick pot or microwave)


Let chocolate cool but not harden.


Put everything in food processor with steel blade or stand mixer and beat until smooth (i'll leave that to you but 2-3 minutes should be enough)


If desired add Grand Marnier, couple of tsp and beat for another 15 sec.


Pour into springform pan


Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 45 - 50 minutes


Center should not be completely solid and should jiggle when moved


Cake will crack either in oven or when cooling and let cool before putting on topping


Toppings:


For white chocolate cake, combine 1 cup sour cream with 1/2 cup of sugar (or a little more if you like it sweet)


Spread on top of cake, sprinkle with almonds


For dark chocolate, melt the remaining chocolate chips with some milk and spread over top of cake


Dark chocolate chips come in a 225 g package so you use the ones left over from above


Cool in fridge over night


Run knife around edge to loosen from pan and remove sides of pan


Pairs Well With
