    This recipe is from Southern Living.
    I was going to make it for Valentines day for some folks but we got so busy with other things I never got around to it. Well, I made it Friday night for my sisters BD party and everyone loved it! It was good. Try itSmile


    1-1/2 Cups Chocolate Graham Cracker Crumbs
    1/4 Cup Butter, melted
    1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
    3 (8-ounce) Packages Cream Cheese, softened
    1-1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
    4 Large Eggs, lightly beaten
    3 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
    1 Cup Sour Cream
    1/2 Cup Whole Buttermilk
    2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
    1 Teaspoon Distilled White Vinegar
    2 (1-ounce) Bottles Red Food Coloring
    1 (3-ounce) Package Cream Cheese, softened
    1/4 Cup Butter, softened
    2 Cups Powdered Sugar
    1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

    Stir together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.

    Beat 3 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese and 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar at Medium-Low speed with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Add eggs and next 6 ingredients, mixing on Low speed just until fully combined. Pour batter into prepared crust.

    Bake at 325-degrees for 10 minutes. Then reduce heat to 300-degrees and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until center is firm. Run knife along outer edge of cheesecake. Turn oven off. Let cheesecake stand in oven 30 minutes. Remove cheesecake from oven. Cool in a pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Cover and chill at least 8 hours but over night is best.

    Beat 1 (3-ounce) package of cream cheese and 1/4-cup butter at Medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until smooth. Spread evenly over the the top of the cheesecake. Remove sides of springform pan.

    NOTE: MAkes a very pretty presentation
