How to Make Chocolate Sherry Cheesecake

Chill. Melt chocolate with remaining butter, remaining syrup, and vanilla in top of double boiler, stirring occasionally until glossy. Beat cream cheese until smooth, then beat in egg yolks, sugar, and sherry. In separate bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cups cold water and leave to soften for 2 minutes. Stand in pan of hot water and stir until dissolved. Cool slightly. Beat egg whites until stiff. Whip cream until it just holds its shape.

Quickly drizzle chocolate sauce over top and swirl with skewer. Chill until set. Cake can be made a day in advance.
