  • Take out a 6x2 pan, line it with some parchment paper, and press your mix into it
  • Bake your crust on 350F/176C for 8-12 minutes or until it’s lightly browned
  • In another bowl mix together the rest of your ingredients aside from your Chocolate Chips
  • Pour your mix on top of your crust
  • Melt your chocolate chips
  • Pour your melted chocolate and cut it into your cheesecake with a knife to give it that beautiful marbled look
