This is a great recipe. I made it last New Years for company. They loved it so I sent them home with the remainder of it. My friend brought it to work,and some said it was the best cheese cake they ever had.It is delicious and rich. It is a very easy cheese cake to make as well. If you think you can't make a cheese cake. This is a great recipe for a beginner.

mix vanilla wafer crumbs with sugar and butter. Press in to a spring form pan about 9 inches. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Heat oven to 350 degree's while making cake portion.
2Beat the cream cheese and sugar together in a bowl until well blended. add 1 egg and beat well. Then add the next 2 eggs one at a time and beat well. Add sour cream and vanilla. Mix together well.
3Pour half the cheese mixture in to pan. use 3/4 cup of heath bar and sprinkle on cheese mixture with the 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips.
4Spoon on remaining cheese mixture. and bake at 350 for one hour.
5Cool 15 minutes,and sprinkle the rest of the heath bar bits on top. Cool completely and remove from spring form pan. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. Garnish with more Heath bar pieces. Drizzle melted chocolate chips on top. Serve with whipped cream if desired. I usually do!!
