                         Graham Cracker Crust
    6      oz            Bittersweet Chocolate
      1/4  Cup           Rum
    1      lb            Cream Cheese
      3/4  Cup           Extra Fine Sugar
      1/2  Cup           Sour Cream
    1      Tbl           Vanilla Extract
    4                    X-Large Eggs
 
   Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Prepare the graham cracker crust in a
 springform pan.  Refrigerate the pan until needed.  Melt the chocolate over low
 heat.	Add the rum.  Set aside.  Beat the cream cheese until fluffy.  Gradually
 beat in the sugar, sour cream and vanilla.  Beat in the eggs, one at a time. 
 Mix well.  Place the bowl over HOT (!) water and stir until smooth.  Pour one
 quarter of the batter into another bowl.  Set aside.  Mix the chocolate into the
 remaining batter.  Stir over HOT (!) water until smooth.  Take the springform pan
 from the refrigerator.  Pour in the chocolate batter.	Gently pour the plain
 batter over the top of the chocolate batter.  Form swirls in the batter with a
 fork (some of the chocolate should show).  Bake for 50 minutes.  Cool to room
 temperature.  Remove the rim from the springform pan.	Refrigerate overnight. 
 Serve.
