Cocoa Nut Crumble Cheesecake

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 butter, melted
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. In small bowl combine graham cracker crumbs and 1/3 cup butter and walnuts, mix well. Pour into 9 inch springform pan and smash onto bottom and sides to make the crust.

(okay I cheated and used my Kitchen Aid for this because I hate working with cream cheese) Combine cream cheese with sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar, beat until smooth. Add cocoa powder and beat until just combined. Add eggs and vanilla beat until smooth. Pour into crust.

In another small bowl combine the rest of the ingredients (flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, butter, and chocolate chips). Sprinkle over filling and slightly press down.

Bake for 30-40 minutes. I baked it until it wasn't jiggly and the topping was toasted looking. Cool 1 hour. Refrigerate 3 hours. EAT.

I found this recipe in The Everything Meals on a Budget Cookbook. My sister-in-law Sarah gave it to me for Christmas and I was able to make the cheese cake in a springform pan Phil gave me for Christmas too! What a tasty season it was!

By the way it serves 10 and is about $.74 per serving.
