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.
