Chocolate Macadamia CheeseCake

Hello, today I decided to bake a cheesecake with a twist. this recipe like most recipes I find I like to tweak them and make them my own, the next time I make this dessert I will leave out the chocolate chips I liked it better when I tasted a piece without the chocolate. However you are welcome to try it the original way.

That vanilla wafer crust was amazingly delicious, I could eat it by itself...which I did...lol


Vanilla Wafer Crust...yummy!




Ready to EAT!!!










Crust:


  • 1 3/4 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped, roasted, salted macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted

Filling:


  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped, roasted, salted macadamia nuts

Directions


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a 13 by 9-inch baking pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil, letting the edges of the foil extend over the sides of the pan.

For the crust: In a small bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, nuts, brown sugar, and butter. Press evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

For the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar at medium speed with a mixer until creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the sour cream. Pour over the crust. Sprinkle with chocolate morsels. Bake until set, 40 minutes. Sprinkle with the nuts. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars to serve. Store in the refrigerator.
