Picture and recipe are from Southern Living Cookbook 1998 Annual Recipes. This is a scrumdillicious cheesecake recipe. If you are a chocoholic like me, you will love it. It always goes over well when you have company over.
Stir together first 3 ingredients; press mixture into bottom of a 10 inch spring form pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes, cool
Beat cream cheese, eggs and one cup sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in coconut and next 3 ingredients. Pour into prepared crust and bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Cool on wire rack.
Place semi sweet chips in a zip lock bag and submerge in hot water until chips are melted. Snip a hole in the corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate over the top of the cheesecake. Cover and chill for 8 hours..
