Chocolate Kahlua Cheesecake

"I was asked to help cater one of my cousin's graduation parties a few years ago and this is one of the recipes that I made for her.  It was a hit!"

1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons butter, melted

Combine crumbs, sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and top with filling.

4 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate pieces, melted
2 Tablespoons Kahlua or coffee-flavored liqueur

Combine cream cheese and sugar. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Blend in sour cream and vanilla. Blend in melted chocolate and Kahlua. Pour over crust. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower the oven to 250 degrees and continue baking for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack. Refrigerate for approximately 4 hours before removing rim of springform pan. When ready to serve, remove rim of pan and top with Kahlua Whipped Cream (Recipe follows).
