Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325°F.
Mix cookie crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended. Add chocolate; mix well.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended; pour over crust.
Bake 55 min. to 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate 4 hours.
Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
If using a dark nonstick springform pan, reduce oven temperature to 300ºF.
Dust entire surface of cooled cheesecake with unsweetened cocoa powder using a wire mesh strainer, if desired. For a festive Valentine's Day garnish, create a heart-shaped design by topping dusted cheesecake with a heart-shaped stencil and sprinkling with powdered sugar.
How to Prepare Crust
Use bottom of clean drinking glass to evenly press cookie crumb mixture onto bottom of springform pan.
Garnish with powdered sugar, and fresh strawberries and/or raspberries just before serving.
