My sister loves cappuccino and cheesecake. I baked this for her birthday, and she was one happy camper! Preparation time includes chill time.

  2. Mix crackers, butter and ¼ cup sugar in medium bowl; press onto bottom (not sides) of a 9-inch spring-form pan with 2¾-inch high sides.
  3. Bake crust 10 minutes.
  4. Cool.
  5. Maintain oven temperature.
  6. Combine cream, espresso powder or coffee and vanilla in small bowl; set aside.
  7. Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese in large bowl until smooth.
  8. Gradually beat in remaining 1¼ cups sugar, then eggs 1 at a time.
  9. Beat in flour.
  10. Stir espresso mixture until power dissolves, beat into cream cheese mixture.
  11. Stir in chocolate chips.
  12. Pour batter over crust.
  13. Bake cake until edges are puffed and beginning to crack and center is just set, about 1 hour 5 minutes.
