This is what we need.

1. To begin, preheat the oven to 300 °F (150 °C).

2. Grease an 8-inch (20 cm) springform pan and line it with parchment paper.

3. In a small bowl, combine the graham crumbs, sugar (2 tbsp), cocoa…

… and melted butter.

Use a fork to combine all the ingredients.

6. Add the eggs, one at a time, on low speed.

7. Add the vanilla and sour cream. Scrape the sides of the bowl one more time and beat until smooth.

8. Reserve 1/2 cup (120 ml) of the cheesecake filling and set aside (!).

9. Melt the 2 oz (60 grams) of dark chocolate in a bowl placed over a pot of barely simmering water (or in a microwave on low temperature).

11. Pour the plain batter into the pan.

12. To make the dots, you will need a pastry bag fitted with a round tip. Fill the pastry bag with the chocolate cheesecake mixture.

13. Gently press the tip of the bag into the smoothed out plain cheesecake and squeeze the bag forming a dot. Place dots all over the cheesecake until the chocolate mixture is used up.

14. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and with the oven door slightly ajar, leave the cheesecake in the oven for an additional 1 hour.

15. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack. Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the cheesecake.

16. Refrigerate for about 12 hours. Freeze if you wish for about 1 hour before cutting. Use a knife dipped in hot water to help when cutting.
