    1       lb           Cream cheese
      3/4   c            Sugar

    1 1/2   c            Sour cream

    1       T            Sugar

   Place chocolate in the top of a double boiler and melt over hot water, or
   place in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on medium for 2 to 3 minutes or
   until melted. Let cool. In a mixer, place the cheese and sugar and mix
   until blended.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth. Blend in
   chocolate and sour cream. Pour into a greased 9-inch springform pan. Bake
   in the middle of a preheated 300F oven for 35 minutes or until the outer
   edge is set and the inner centre is still glossy. Turn off the oven, leave
   the door ajar, and let cool in the oven for 1 hour longer. Chill. When
   completely cooled, and ready to serve, remove pan sides.
   Prepare whipped cream topping;  in a small bowl, whip cream until stiff
   peaks form and beat in sugar, sour cream and liquer. Spoon in a ring around
   top of cheesecake and sprinkle with chocolate curls.
