Easy Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

Here is a recipe and some photos of a chocolate swirl cheesecake i made the other day. Its a bit simpler than your standard cheesecake recipe. It also doesn't require the use of a springform pan which is typically necessary for cheesecake making. So if your looking for a fairly simple dessert and you love chocolate, i would definitely give this recipe a shot.

Easy Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake 
1 8oz package cream cheese
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp lemon juice 
1 tbsp vanilla extract 
1 egg
1/3 cup chocolate chips, melted 
1 chocolate pie crust 

1. Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Then gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and vanilla. Add egg and beat just to combine. 
2. Pour about half the cheesecake mix into the crust.
3. Then melt your chocolate chips, and add about 1/2 cup of the cheesecake mixture to the chocolate and fold together. 
4. Pour the mixture over the cheesecake 
5. Then pour the remaining plain cheese cake mixture on top, then with a butter knife swirl the cheesecake. 
6. Bake at 300F for 50-55 minutes. Then remove from oven and let cool on wire rack for 1 hour.
7. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. However is best served after it has been chilled overnight. 

And heres a final photo, and before i knew it the whole thing was gone! 

Sorry i haven't been updating too often lately, but i would like to point out the amazon application i added to my blog. Amazon is personally one of my favorite sites, and its great for baking supplies. So this will show you the latest deals on baking stuff. Hope you enjoy!
