  1 1/2 c  chocolate wafer crumbs

      3 T  butter,melted

      3 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

     32 oz cream cheese,softened

  1 1/4 c  sugar

      3 T  cornstarch

    1/4 t  salt

      5 lg eggs

      8 oz sour cream

      2 t  vanilla

  1 1/2 c  heavy cream,or whipping cream

     12 oz semi sweet chocolate

      8 oz white chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degreese.  Grease 9" springform pan.  In bowl, mix chocolate afer crumbs & butter; firmly press onto bottom of pan. Bake 12-15 minutes.  Remove crust from oven & sprinkle with chocolate pices.  Let stand until soft then spread over crust.  Refrigerate while preparing filling.


In large bowl, beat cream cheese until light in small bowl, mix sugar, cornstarch & salt.  Slowly beat into cream cheese until blended.  With mixer at low sped, gradually beat in eggs, sour cream, vanilla & one cup heavy cream until blended & smooth.


Divide batter evenly into two 4-8 cup measuring cups or containers with pouring spout.  In small saucepan over low heat, melt 8 oz semi sweet chocolate.  In another small pan over very low heat, melt the white chocolate.  Stir melted semi sweet chocolate into matter in one measuring cup & stir melted white chocolate into batter in 2nd measuring cup.


To create "zebra" design pour half of dark batter into springform pan.

Holding white batter about 2 feet above pan, pour about half of batter.

Pouring from this height will cause batter in center of cake to be

pushed toward edge of pan, forming zebra design.  Repeat procedure

three times, decreasing the amounts of batter each time & pouring from

high above pan only into center, ending with white batter.  Top of cake

should look like a series of concentric circles.


Bake cheesecake 30 minutes.  Reduce heat to 225 degrees and bake 1 hour

and 45 minutes longer or until center is set.  Turn off oven; let

cheesecake remain in oven 1 hour.  Remove cheesecake from oven.  Run

spatula around edge of cheesecake to loosen. Cool cake on wire rack.

Refrigerate cake at least 6 ours or until well chilled.

cream until small bubbles form around edge of pan.  Remove from heat.

glaze 10 minutes.  meanwhile, carefully remove cake from pan to cake

plate, with spatula, spead glaze over top & side.  Refrigerate 30-45

minutes until glaze is set.
