Ingredients

8 Heath English Toffee bars - 1.4 oz size
Crust:
9 ounces chocolate wafer cookies
3 tablespoons butter - melted
Filling:
1-1/3 cups heavy cream
5 tablespoons instant coffee crystals
3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Topping:
12 ounces milk chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325ºF. Coarsely chop 4 Heath bars. Finely chop remaining 4 bars. Reserve separately.



Crust: In a food processor, grind cookies into fine crumbs. Add melted butter and process until mixed. Press into bottom and about 1" up sides of a 9-1/2" springform pan. Sprinkle coarsely chopped Heat bars over crust. Refrigerate while preparing filling.



Filling: In a 1-cup glass measure, combine 1/2 cup cream and coffee crystals. Heat in a microwave oven on HIGH 40-60 seconds, or until coffee dissolves when stirred. Refrigerate until cool, about 15 minutes.



In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Beat in 1/2 cup cream, eggs, and vanilla until well mixed, 1-2 minutes. With mixer on low speed, beat in chilled coffee-cream mixture; continue beating 5 minutes. Turn into prepared crust.



Bake 1 hour and 15-20 minutes, or until cheesecake looks set around edges and center still jiggles slightly. Let cake cool; then refrigerate.



Topping: When cake is cool, in top of a double boiler, heat together chocolate chips and remaining 1/3 cup cream, stirring often, until melted and smooth. Let cool in refrigerator until slightly thickened. Spread


topping over cheesecake. Sprinkle finely chopped candy bars on top. Refrigerate until chocolate layer is set and cake is well chilled, 6 hours. Run a knife around edge of pan to loosen cake and remove springform side of pan.
