Chocolate Marbled Vanilla Cheesecake

Today it is cold, wet and icy and it's Monday! That's a quadruple whammy! All those things together equal the need for a Chocolate Marbled Vanilla Cheesecake, which will make everything better! I made this cheesecake a mini, using a  4" round springform. There is milk chocolate running through the cake, and I topped it off with a  few drops of Nutella and some sprinkles! Happy Monday!

Scoop some of the mix into each small pan. Use the back of a spoon to tamp it down to the bottom. Set aside.
milk chocolate, melting, double boiler
Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Chop the chocolate to a small size, and make the size consistant. Melt it slowly over low heat.
cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream, cornstarch
Use a large mixing bowl to mix together the cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream, and cornstarch. Beat with mixer until smooth. 
eggs, egg yolk, vanilla, flavoring, extract
Add eggs and yolk one at a time. Beat after each one. Mix in the vanilla extract and flavoring. Beat until smooth.
chocolate, cheesecake filling
Spoon cheesecake mix into pans, about half way up. Spoon a small amount of melted chocolate on top of cheesecake mix. Lightly swirl through mix.

Place cheesecakes in oven and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 200 degrees and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Check at 15 minutes. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done.
cheesecakes, cooling, cooling rack
Place cheesecakes on a cooling rack. Let sit for five minutes, then take a small knife around the pan, between the cheesecake and the pan, to loosen them. Let cheesecakes cool completely, then release from spring pan. Refrigerate.

Pipe four dollops of Nutella around the cheesecake. I used a Wilton tip #M1. Sprinkle the dollops with chocolate sprinkles. You can see how nice the chocolate swirl looks in this cut piece!
