I was determined I was going to make a cheesecake I've never seen before. This recipe might exsist somewhere out there but as far as I know it came from the back of my mind. Lol
Hope you try it and like it.

What a treat! This cheesecake recipe's tangy, smooth and crunchy all wrapped up in one. I love the pop of flavor of the chewy chocolate crust. The butter pecan topping really makes this cheesecake shine. It's delicious!

Tip: The topping gets hard after a while when the cheesecake is setting up in the fridge. Just pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt the topping, then just drizzle on top. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Buttered Pecan Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Crust: melt butter and add to cake mix. Mix well and press into springform pan or any pan of your choosing. I used a springform pan.
  2. Layer 1: In a sauce pan melt butter, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil and add pecans, boil for 1 minute at a hard boil then remove from heat and add vanilla, mix well and layer 2/3 of mixture on top of crust.
  3. Layer 2: Add chocolate chips.
  4. Layer 3: Mix cream cheese and sugar with mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add sour cream and mix well. Add eggs and extract, mix well. Pour over chocolate chips and spread evenly.
  5. Bake at 325 for 1 hour or until top is slightly brown. Remove from oven and allow it to settle before adding the final layer. Then let cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!
