Very rich, not hard to make. Very nice presentation. My husband will ask for this when he wants something very special. So worth the extra little bit of effort!

1/4 c

hot fudge ice cream topping
2
heath bars for top of cheesecake

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crush grahams and melt butter. mix in the 1 1/2 T sugar or 2 T.Pat into springform pan. I use a 10 inch. Bake for 10 min.Drizzle hot fudge over the crust and set aside. I dont measure-but just drizzle-dont dump the fudge on.
2
Beat cream cheese.add sour cream and eggs. beat till smooth. add sugar. beat until smooth.
3
melt choc according to pkg directions. add chocolate and liquer and coffee granules to batter. blend well.
4
Pour mixture onto crust. Bake until center is fairly well set. Stay in your kitchen...you dont want to burn this. I usually put a pan of 3 cups water on the lower rack of oven. at least 40 min.
5
When baked, remove from oven and let cool slightly. when cooler, runa sharp knife around the pan and loosen ring of springform pan. Wehn cool all the way, drizzle hot fudge across the top and then crush heath bars and add these to top. Voila!
