  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled
  • Whipped cream and additional chocolate chips, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine all crust ingredients and press onto bottom and 2 in. up sides of a 9-in. springform pan; refrigerate until ready to fill.
