Originally from "365 great chocolate desserts" by Natalie Haughton.  I'm pretty
sure it's changed since then.

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake

1 9 oz package chocolate wafer cookies
3 T butter melted
12 oz Semisweet choc chips
1 C heavy cream
3/4 C Raspberry jam
2 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 C sugar
4 Eggs
2 t vanilla

Grind cookies to a fine powder, mix with the butter and press into the bottom
and up the sides about an inch of a 9" springform pan (or 2 7" pans). 
Refrigerate while making the filling.

Combine the chips and cream in a microwave safe bowl and heat at high for 3 to
4 minutes or until smooth.  Stir every minute.  Mix in the jam, stirring until
disolved, let cool 10 minutes

Mix the creamcheese and sugar until smooth.  Add the eggs, one at a time,
mixing well after each egg.  Add the vanilla and the chocolateraspberry
mixture.  Mix well.

Bake 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours at 325 or until cake is set around the edges but 
still jiggles slightly in the centr.  Cool and put in the fridge for at least 6

We typically make it in the 7" pans and get 16 sinfully rich slices per cake
