Description

No need to wait for formal gatherings to serve this Tuxedo Cheesecake -- but it is something special. Our Premier White morsels make this dessert divinely decadent.

Ingredients

  • CRUST
  • 1 3/4 cups crushed creme-filled chocolate cookies
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • FILLING
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
  • 3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar, made into curls or grated *

Directions

FOR CRUST:
PREHEAT
oven to 350° F.

COMBINE cookie crumbs and butter together in medium bowl. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

FOR FILLING:
MICROWAVE
morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Cool to room temperature.

BEAT cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs; gradually beat in melted white morsels. Spread over chocolate crust.

BAKE for 40 to 50 minutes or until edges are set but center still moves slightly. Cool in pan on wire rack; refrigerate until firm. Remove side of springform pan.

SPRINKLE curls over cheesecake before serving.

HINT: To make chocolate curls, carefully draw a vegetable peeler along edges of a bar of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate.

* NOTE: May also use NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Baking Bar to make curls.

Just the right Umf!!!

This was my first cheesecake and I brought it to a dinner party. Everyone loved it!!! Mine had a crack in the middle so I covered with the white morsels all over it. Which actually made very pretty. I read that you should leave it to cool in the oven so it won't crack. No one notice the crack and they loved. Everyone was shock. Delicious cheesecake recipe with a little extra umf!!! : ) God Bless you all and to him be the Glory forever.

Tasty & Easy

This recipe was a nice change of pace.... using white chocolate instead of regular chocolate chips. My husband prefers the white chocolate. We gave one of these as a gift and the family loved it. I found the recipe to be easy to follow and I had no trouble at all.

This was so good

I love this recipe. I decided to make this cheesecake for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it so much that my sister asked me to make her one to take home with her. It was my first cheesecake ever and it was delicious. I recommend this to everyone.

Made this for Christmas - was a big hit with everyone. Just sweet enough to top off a meal.

My co-workers went nuts!

by S. SUSAN , BIRMINGHAM, AL on Jan. 2006

I made this & brought it to work & people were just about fighting over it! I made it exactly as the recipe was written & it was fabulous. I had one co-worker offer to pay me to make it again! I declined the money but will definitely make it again, but I will probably have to make at least 2 of them to satisfy everyone.
