Ingredients

  • 10 ounces chocolate cookie wafers (such as Nabisco Famous wafers)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (4 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • Cocoa powder for dusting

Procedures

  1. 1

    Pulse cookie crumbs and granulated sugar in food processor until fine. Place in a large bowl and toss with melted butter until moistened. Firmly press into the bottom and 1 1/2-inches up sides of an 8-inch springform pan.

  2. 2

    Using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until light and creamy, about 1 minute, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary. Reduce speed to low and mix in vanilla, sour cream, and melted chocolate until smooth and homogenous.

  3. 3

    Spoon mixture into crust and smooth top. Chill until set, about 4 hours. Dust with cocoa powder and let sit for 30 minutes at room temperature before serving.
