1 cup sugar
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To prepare crust, grind cookies into fine crumbs using a blender or a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add butter and blend until smooth, and then add sugar. Press crust into bottom of 9-inch springform pan and refrigerate while preparing the filling.

To prepare filling, beat cream cheese until smooth in a large bowl using an electric mixer. Blend in sugar and sour cream. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix until smooth.

Using a wooden spoon, stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Pour filling into crust-lined pan and smooth top with a spatula. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips evenly over the top. Bake 30 to 40 minutes. Turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven for 1 hour to set. Remove from oven and chill in refrigerator until firm, about 3 to 4 hours.
