Ingredients for Crust
1 9 ounce box of chocolate wafer cookies
6 ounces of semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
½ cup dark brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
7 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter
Ingredients for Ganache
1 ½ cups whipping cream
20 ounces of chopped semisweet chocolate
¼ cup Kahlua
Ingredients for Filling
4 8 ounce packages cream cheese at room temperature
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder or coffee crystals
2 tablespoons ground espresso coffee beans
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoons light molasses
4 large eggs
Ingredients for Topping
1 ½ cups sour cream
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Directions for Crust
Finely grind the cookies, chopped chocolate, brown sugar and nutmeg in processor. Add the butter and process until the crumbs begin to stick together then scrape down after a minute. Put the crumbs in a 10 inch round springform pan that’s three inches high on the sides. Wrap plastic wrap around your fingers and press the mixture firmly up the sides of the pan to within ½ an inch from the top and then press firmly on the bottom of the pan.
Directions for Ganache
Bring the whipping cream to a simmer in a large saucepan and then remove from the heat. Add the chocolate and the Kahlua. Whisk until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour two cups of the ganache over the bottom of the crust. Freeze until firm for about 30 minutes. Reserve any remaining ganache, cover and let it stand at room temperature to use later.
Directions for Filling
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Use an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until well blended. Beat in the flour. Stir in the rum, espresso powder, ground coffee, molasses, and vanilla in a small bowl until the coffee dissolves. Beat this into the cream cheese mixture. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Pour the filling over the crust with ganache. Put on a baking sheet and bake the cheesecake until the top is brown, puffed and cracking at the edges and it only moves slightly when the pan is shaken. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes. During this time maintain your oven temperature.
Directions for Topping
Whisk the sour cream, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and blend together. Pour the topping over the cheesecake and spread to cover it completely. Put back in oven and bake until the topping is set, this should take about 10 minutes. Take the cheesecake off the rack and refrigerate the hot cheesecake on a rack until it’s cool about three hours.
Take a small sharp knife and run it between the crust and the pan sides to loosen from the pan. Put the cheesecake on a platter and spoon the reserved ganache into a pastry bag. Pipe six diagonal lines on top of the cheesecake making sure there’s an inch between the lines. Then repeat in the opposite direction making a pretty lattice. Garnish with some coffee beans if you want. Chill finished cheesecake for another six hours before serving.
Serve and enjoy. Cover remaining cheesecake with foil and keep chilled.
