Beth's Birthday Cheesecake (aka Chocolate Marble Cheesecake)

For the past several years I have made this cheesecake for my birthday. It is so yum yum good, that Baruch requested it for his birthday this year.

3 packages (8 ounces each) neuftechel cheese
3/4 C sucanat (or rapadura or unrefined sugar)
1 t vanilla
3 eggs
1 square unsweetened Chocolate, melted
1 Mrs. Smith's pie crust thawed and baked

Preheat oven to 450°

Beat neuftechel cheese, sugar and vanilla at medium speed with electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Blend melted chocolate into 1 cup batter. Spoon plain and chocolate batters alternately over crust; cut through batters with knife several times for marble effect.

Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F; continue baking 30 minutes. Cool and serve plain or with fruit. Refrigerate leftovers, but don't expect any =)
