1-1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
6 egg yolks
1-3/4 cups whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
3-4 tablespoons milk

In a small bowl, combine wafer crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and 1-1/2 inches up the sides of a greased 9-inch spring-form pan. Bake at 350บ for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

In a saucepan, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Cool. In a mixing bowl, combine egg yolks, cream and vanilla; beat well. Gradually stir a third of the cream mixture into melted chocolate until blended. Gradually stir in remaining cream mixture. Pour into crust.

Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350บ for 40-45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.

For frosting, in a mixing bowl, cream butter. Combine confectioners sugar and cocoa; add to butter with enough milk to achieve frosting consistency. Pipe or spread into the center of the dessert. Refrigerate leftovers.
