Servings 12 slices


For Crust:

  • 10 graham crackers crushed
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For Filling:

  • 4 8-oz blocks cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup heavy cream room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup chocolate chips


For Crust:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick spray and wrap the outside tightly with foil.
  • In a medium bowl combine the crushed graham crackers, melted butter, sugar, and salt. Mix until fully combined. It should be the texture of wet sand.
  • Firmly press the crumbs into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Bake the crust for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool completely while you prepare the filling.

For Filling:

  • Preheat your oven to 450°.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Add the sugar and beat until fully combined and smooth.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, combining fully and scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl between each addition.
  • Add the heavy cream and vanilla and beat until just combined. Fold the chocolate chips into the mixture.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared pan.
  • Place the cheesecake into a deep pan. Boil enough water to fill the pan up to halfway up the cheesecake pan.
  • Pour the boiling water into the pan, stopping halfway up the springform pan.
  • Place the pan on the center rack of your oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 225° for 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 hour and 35 minutes, or until only the center of the cheesecake jiggles slightly.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to rest on the counter for an hour or until room temperature. Transfer the cheesecake to the fridge to chill overnight.
