Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Oh my holy goodness! DH asked me to make him this (my very first cheesecake ever) for Father's Day. So, I looked up a recipe and found one that looked good. I made it on Saturday and let it sit in the fridge until taking it out Sunday afternoon. I highly recommend making this if you're in to cheesecake. :)

1 chocolate crust (unless you have a cheesecake pan, then you'll need this: 1 pkg chocolate graham crackers, 1/2 cup melted butter, 2 tablespoons white sugar)

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Refrigerate crust while making filling.
2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth.
3. Beat in the eggs and egg yolk.
4. Stir in the vanilla.
5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
6. Pour filling into pie crust.
7. Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, or until filling is set.
8. Refrigerate over night, cut into the next day and enjoy! :)

Super Yummy and Healthy!

I'm sorry it's taken me awhile to get a new post up. I've been really busy, and was out of town a few days. I found this recipe on Food Network and I had to try it. I made it for dinner last night, and it was amazing and yummy and actually pretty good for me! I hope if you choose to make this, you enjoy it as much as my husband and I did. :)
