An exceptionally easy recipe that comes out perfect. For those who are spooked by the idea of making a cheesecake, let this be your first one. But be warned, once you make this for your family and friends, they will ask for it again and again. I know because that is what happened to me.
Pre Heat oven to 400 degrees.
In a food processor, add chocolate wafers, sugar and cocoa powder. Pulse until the wafers are broken up. Add melted butter and pulse until the mixutre resembles corse meal. Empty food processor into a 9 inch springform pan, press down the chocolate mixture, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
Reduce oven to 325 degrees.
In a stand mixer (or bowl using a hand mixer) slowly beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add eggs (one at a time) and mix until incorporated, scraping sides of bowl often. Add salt, sour cream and vanilla, mix and scrape bowl to ensure full incorporation.
Remove 1/2 cup of batter and place it into a small mixing bowl. Add instant espresso and hot chocolate mix. Stir well until the dry ingrediants are disolved into batter.
Pour 1/2 of plain batter over cooled crust. Divide mocha java mixture in half and place spoonfuls of half this mixture onto plain batter. Gently swirl mocha java mixture with tip of a knife to create a marbling effect. Repeate this process with remaining plain batter and mocha java mixture.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until cheesecake is almost set. Remove from oven and gently run a wooden toothpick around the rim of pan to loosen cheesecake. This will help to prevent the cheesecake from cracking. Cool 1 hour on kitchen counter, then cover and cool 8 hours in the refrigerator.
