Instructions

For the Chocolate Cookie Crust:

  1. Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan. 
  2. In a large bowl combine the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter, mix well to combine.
  3. Press the crust into a 9" pie plate, pressing it in the middle and up the sides. Place crust in the freezer for 30 minutes.

For the German Chocolate Cheesecake Filling:

  1. Fill a medium pot one-third full with water and bring it to a low simmer over medium heat.
  2. Place a heatproof bowl that will fit on top of the pan snugly, but will not touch the simmering water, on top of the pan.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and add the chopped chocolate into the bowl over the pot. Heat until the chocolate is completely melted, stirring occasionally with a silicon spatula. Remove the pot from the heat, leaving the bowl of chocolate over the hot water. Set aside until needed.
  4. In the bowl of a food processor (or high-powered blender), pulse the cream cheese until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed, about 2 minutes. Add in both sugars and cocoa powder and beat smooth. Add in the vanilla and heavy cream and mix until just combined, about 20 seconds. Fold in the chocolate until evenly combined. 
  5. Remove the bowl from the food processor and, using a rubber spatula, stir the filling several times to ensure its evenly blended. 
  6. Remove the crust form the freezer. Scrape the filling over the crust and smooth the top. 
  7. Transfer the cheesecake to the refrigerator to chill for at least 6 hours.
