How to Make Chocolate Orange Cheesecake
- Crust: Combine crumbs, cinnamon and butter; press onto bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan.
- Combine cream cheese and sugar in large bowl, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended.
Add sour cream and vanilla.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
- In a medium bowl, blend melted chocolate into 3 cups batter.
Pour chocolate batter over crust.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Stir zest and liqueur into remaining batter; refrigerate until ready to use.
Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
- Spoon remaining batter over baked chocolate layer; continue baking 30 minutes or until center is almost set. Leave cheesecake in the oven for 1 hour after turning the oven off with the door open, to prevent cracking on the top surface.
Loosen cake from rim of pan; cool before removing rim of pan.
Refrigerate 4 hours.
Heat marmalade just until warmed; spoon over cheesecake just before serving.
