put the cookies in food processor and turn to crumbs
pour in the melted butter
put all this into bottom of LARGE springform pan and put in fridge for a few minutes while you work on the rest
Cream (I use my Mixmaster) the cream cheese and sugar together
Mix the gelatin in the warm water -and add the coffee to make a slurry mix
Melt all but one square of the chocolate in the box
With the mixer on pretty high speed put the gealtin MAKE SURE IT IS RUNNY---add a littel more water if you need to--you do NOT want a paste) ADD the melted chocolate and the gelatin/coffee mix.
Slow down the mixer and add the cool whip.
Pour onto the crust. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours
Mix the sour cream and 2 Tbsp sugar together and spread over the filling.
Melt the last square of chocolate with the oil to make a runny chocolate sauce
Trickle the chocolate sauce in a spiral starting at the center of the pan over the sour cream. QUICKLY take a knife and pull form center to outside to "pull out" the chocolate--it will look like a spider web.
THIS LOOKS LIKE YOU WENT TO CULINARY SCHOOL---it isdeadly and I have made it for 20 years to rave reviews!!
To remove---use a warm knife around the edge and undo pan.
I have also used this to make those cute littel individual cheesecake or you can make three small cheesecakes to give as gifts. IT freezes well if covered tighly after freezing.
