Ingredients

  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 pkg (each 8 oz/250 g) cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  • 1/4 cup chocolate sauce
Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted

Method

Grease bottom of 9-inch (2.5 L) springform pan. Centre pan on large square of heavy-duty foil; press foil to side of pan. Set aside.

Crust: In bowl, stir crumbs with butter until moistened; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until firm, about 10 minutes. Let cool. Line inside of pan with band of parchment paper.

Meanwhile, in bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate; let cool to room temperature.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in sugar. Beat in eggs then cream and chocolate until smooth. Scrape over prepared crust; smooth top. Set pan in larger pan; pour enough hot water into larger pan to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) up side. Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until set around edge and centre still jiggles, about 1 hour. Turn off oven; let stand in oven for 1 hour.

Transfer springform pan to rack and remove foil; let cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until firm and cold. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.)

Sprinkle marshmallows over cheesecake. Drizzle with caramel and chocolate sauces. (Make-ahead: Cover with cake dome or loose plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 4 hours.) Cut into slices with hot dry knife.
