Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

This cheesecake is my husband's favorite dessert. I like it because I don't have to bother with a springform pan and it tastes just as good! I also toyed with it using the 1/3 less fat cream cheese and there is absolutely no taste difference.

3 pkg (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. mini semi-sweet chips
1 extra serving size (9 oz.) graham cracker crust
2 Tbs. whipping cream

1. Preheat oven to 450.

2. Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir in 1 2/3 c. chocolate chips; pour into crust.

3. Bake 10 minutes. Without opening oven door, reduce temperature to 250; continue baking 30 minutes or just until set. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

4. Place remaining 1/3 c. chocolate chips and whipping cream in small bowl. Microwave on high 20 to 30 seconds or just until melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Cool slightly and spread over top of cheesecake. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until topping is set. Enjoy!

I finally made this with one change. I only had time to go to one store and they didn't have the extra large pie crust so I had to use a regular crust. Obviously there was too much filling to fit in so I put a few crushed graham crackers into ramekins to use the rest. This is really good and we will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!
