Directions

Making the crust

Roughly crush and place the cookies inside the food processor

Pulse until fine crumbs formed

Add the butter and mix a few more seconds to combine into a sticky mixture

Pour the crumbs into an 8″ springform pan and press the crumbs firmly to form the crust

Use a measuring cup to make that process easier

Place the pan in the fridge while you make the filling

Making the filing

Start by melting the chocolate,set aside to cool a little ( I do that in the microwave ,30 sec. or a bit longer)

In a mixing bowl combine the cream cheese ,sifted sugar and vanilla

Mix until smooth

Slowly add the cream ,mixing on low speed

Scrape the bowl a few times to incorporate the mixture

Beat on high speed for 1-2 minutes

Divide the filling into 2 equal portions

Pour one portion into prepared springform pan ( crust should be nice and firm by the time you made the filling)

Spread the filling evenly ,sprinkle with some crushed cookies( optional) and place in the fridge while you continue on the other half

Add melted chocolate to the other half and gently fold in with a spatula to incorporate

Pour that chocolate filling on top of the vanilla/ cookies layer and return to the fridge while you melt the ganache

Making the ganache

Heat the cream until it starts to bubble ( do not boil)

Pour over the chocolate and butter (butter should be room temp.)

Let it stand a few minutes and mix until it turns into smooth ganache

Pour over the cake ,spread evenly ,gently tap the pan on the table to remove air bubbles

Place in the fridge for 5-8 hours

Gently slide a warm knife around the pan to ease the cake out

Slice the cake with warm knife
