INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared chocolate crumb crust
  • 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand for 1 minute. Heat gelatin; stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in cream, vanilla and gelatin mixture until smooth. Pour into crust.
  2. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth. Transfer to a heavy-duty resealable bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe a circle of chocolate in center of cheesecake. Pipe evenly spaced thin concentric circles about 1/2 in. apart over filling. Beginning with the center circle, gently pull a toothpick through circles toward outer edge. Wipe toothpicks clean. Repeat to complete web pattern. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting.
