I saw this in Taste of Home but the magazine was discarded for some reason so I was happy to find it here. This is very, very delicious. To make my life easier, I just used Chocolate Reddi Whip on top.
- 2 cups chocolate wafers or 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 24 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup miniature chocolate chip
- 4 ounces milk chocolate
- 8 ounces Cool Whip
