Directions:
In a small bowl, combine wafer crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of ungreased 9" springform pan. Place pan in baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 325. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in sugar and cream. Add eggs and vanilla; beat on low just until combined. Divide batter into thirds. Add melted semisweet chocolate to a third. Spread over crust. Add melted white chocolate to another third. Spread over semisweet layer. Stir in strawberries and, if desired, a few drops of food coloring into remaining portion. Spread over white chocolate layer. Plan pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18" square). Securely wrap foil around pan. Place springform pan in a large baking pan. Fill larger pan with hot water to a depth of 1 in. Bake at 325 for 70-75 minutes or until center is just set. Remove springform pan from water bath. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove foil. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen. Cool for an hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. For topping: melt semisweet chocolate, butter and 1tsp shortening in a heavy saucepan or microwave; stir until smooth. Cool 5 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Pour melted chocolate mixture over cheesecake. Melt white chocolate and remaining shortening. Drizzle over cheesecake. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Refrigerate leftovers.
