I've heard tell of a Chocolate Cheezecake recipe but didn't find it in Alissa's book. Do any of you have a favorite? I'm making it for Thanksgiving, so would like something tried and true rather than just experimenting on my own.

Process the nuts, coconut, salt, cocoa and vanilla bean seeds in a food processor until fine crumbs. Add the agave and cacao nibs until the mixture just starts to stick together. Press into the bottom of a springform pan. Pour the filling over the crust and chill or freeze until ready to serve.
