How to Make Double Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Stir together first 4 ingredients; press crumb mixture into bottom and 1 inch up sides of a 9 inch spring form pan.
    Set aside.
  • 2Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and salt at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
    Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
    Add sour cream and vanilla, beating just until smooth.
  • 3Divide batter in half; fold white chocolate and almond extract into 1 portion.
    Pour into prepared crust.
    Fold semi-sweet chocolate into remaining half of batter.
    Drop chocolate batter evenly over white chocolate layer; gently swirl with a knife to create a marbled effect.
  • 4Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until almost set.
    Remove pan from oven, and run a knife around edge of pan to loosen sides.
    Cool on a wire rack.
  • 5TOPPING: Combine brown sugar, pecans and butter in a small bowl.
    Sprinkle over cooled cheesecake.
    Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
    Store in refrigerator.
    Tip: A little swirling goes a long way. If you're looking for the perfect marbled effect, don't overwork your batter. Too much swirling will cause a muddy look rather than the distinct color contrast you're looking for.
