Preparation

Step 1



Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Place cookie wafers in a zip-top freezer bag or double bag. Crush with fingers or roll with a rolling pin or food can to make about 1 cup fine crumbs.

Melt butter in a saucepan or medium bowl in the microwave. Stir in crumbs until evenly blended with butter.

Press crumbs firmly on bottom of 9-inch spring-form pan. Bake 5 minutes. Cool.

Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

Beat cream cheeses in a large bowl of electric mixer until smooth. Beat in sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla, starting on low speed then increasing to high, until thoroughly mixed.

Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping bowl well after each addition. Gently stir in 1 cup raspberries. Pour mixture into pan.

Bake 60-70 minutes or until just barely set in center. Edges may crack slightly. Turn oven off and leave in oven 1 hour with door ajar. Remove from oven and cool completely. Cover and chill at least 8 hours. Run a knife around edge and remove rim.

Top cheesecake with remaining raspberries. Hold chocolate bar over cheesecake; firmly slide a sharp vegetable peeler along edge of chocolate allowing shavings to fall on cake.
