No-Bake Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

- 24 chocolate cream cookies
- 1/3 cup butter, melted

- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 8 oz heavy whipping cream
Crush cookies into crumbs—either in a food processor, or seal in a bag and hit with a rolling pin. Mix cookie crumbs with butter, and press into a pie dish. Refrigerate for 30 min. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms still peaks when you remove the beaters. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, sugar, and vanilla until there are no lumps. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals until smooth, and add to the mixture. Fold in the whipped cream, and spoon into the pie crust. Decorate however you want (we used chocolate syrup and piped whipped cream), and freeze for 30 minutes.
