Layered Mocha Cheesecake Recipe


Layered Mocha Cheesecake

1 ½ cups Oreo cookie crumbs

¼ cup butter, melted

Filling:       2 Tbsp. plus 1 ½ tsp. instant coffee granules

1 Tbsp. hot water

¼ tsp. cinnamon

4 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened

1 ½ cups sugar

¼ cup flour

2 tsp. vanilla extract

4 eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Glaze:       ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 Tbsp. butter

Chocolate-covered coffee beans, optional


Place greased 9 inch springform pan on double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 inch square).  Securely wrap foil around pan.

In a small bowl, mix cookie crumbs and butter; press onto the bottom of prepared pan.  In another bowl, mix the coffee granules, hot water and cinnamon; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla until smooth.  Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined.

Divide batter in half.  Stir melted chocolate into one portion; pour over crust.  Stir coffee mixture into the remaining batter; spoon over chocolate layer.  Place springform pan in a large baking pan; add 1 inch of hot water to larger pan.
