1/3 cup butter, melted
4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 eggs
3 tablespoons coffee flavored liqueur

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Grease an 8 inch springform pan.
combine cookie crumbs and butter in medium bowl.
Mix well. Press into bottom of springform pan.
In top of a double boiler, heat chocolate. Stir occasionally 'til chocolate is melted and smooth.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Beat cream cheese, brown sugar and cornstarch until smooth in large bowl.
Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in coffee liqueur.
Fold 1/3 of filling into melted chocolate.
Then pour the chocolate mixture back into the filling and mix until no streaks remain.
Pour into crust.
Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, 'til filling is set.

I don't like coffee at all, but I love things that are flavoured with coffee! Strange, I know. I'll be adding you to my feed reader!
