RECIPE: Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cheesecake
DH bought a bucket of chocolate chip cookie dough - I decided to use some of it to make this dessert:
18 ounces refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (I'm assuming you could alternatively make your regular homemade chocolate chip cookie instead)
2 8-ounce packages crame cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
4 packets (1-oz each) Nestle Choco Bake Unsweetened Chocolate Flavor (I just melted unsweetened baking chocolate)
2 8-ounce containers frozen Cool Whip
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
Place cookie dough on bottom of springform pan.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
Combine cream cheese, sugar, and melted unsweetened chocolate in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Add whipped topping; stir until just blended. Spoon over cookie crust; smooth top. Drizzle with melted semi-sweet chocolate. Cover; refrigerate for 3 - 4 hours or overnight. Remove sides of pan.
