Mother's Chocolate Cheesecake

My mom makes this recipe for special occasions. It's good!

1 box thin chocolate wafers, crushed [the only difficult to find ingredient, could substitue chocolate sandwich cookies without filling, or a more normal graham cracker crumb crust if you're desperate]
1/4 c butter, melted
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 pounds cream cheese
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 c sugar
4 eggs
3 tsp cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
2 c sour cream

Combine wafers, butter, cinnamon. Press into bottom and sides of 10 inch springform pan, chill. Melt chocolate, beat cream cheese until soft, fluffy. Beat in sugar then eggs [adding eggs one at a time]. Add remaining ingredients, blend thoroughly.

Bake 350 degrees 1 hour 10 min. [will be somewhat runny, don't worry, it firms as it chills]. Cool, then chill at least 5 hours. Freezes well.

Update: Sorry, missed the cream cheese when I was typing the recipe in. Thanks to VW Bug, fixed now. And I rechecked everything else, no more errors I can see.

Man, that sounds good. Torture for a guy on a diet though. Mmm.

I've a chocolate cheesecake recipe that's similar to this. I've been using Nilla brand chocolate wafers for the crust with great success.
