1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
3 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine above ingredients and press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool while making filling.
1 pkg (12-oz) vanilla baking chips, divided
3 pkgs (8-oz size) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt 1 1/2 cups of the vanilla chips in the microwave; set aside to cool.
In a mixer bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until well blended. Add eggs and mix well. Blend in the melted chips; pour filling over crust.
Bake at 350 degrees 40 minutes. Turn oven off but allow cheesecake to stand in oven without you opening the door for 2 hours. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Chill for 4 hours once cake is cooled.
1 pkg (12-oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup whipping cream
2 tbsp butter or margarine

Heat the cream, butter and sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over the chocolate chips. Allow to cool for 3 minutes. Stir until smooth and cool.

Melt the remaining vanilla chips (from the filling) and drizzle over the cake.
