How to Make Chocolate Orange Cheesecake


  1. Crust: Combine crumbs, cinnamon and butter; press onto bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
