Hello Carol,

The East Side Mario's recipe is not available, but there's another one below.


Chocolate Eruption Cheese Cake

Bottom Crust: 

1 1?4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs or fine brownie crumbs 
1?4 cup white chocolate, finely ground 
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 


2 1?2 pounds cream cheese, softened 
1?2 cup sugar, superfine if available 
One 14-ounce can condensed milk 
5 large eggs 
1?3 cup light cream 
2 tablespoons flour 
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 
Pinch salt 
1 1/2 cups white chocolate, coarsely chopped 
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or coarsely chopped chocolate 
2 cup coarsely chopped Snickers or Turtle candy bar 
1 cup coarsely cut chunks of brownie, homemade or prepared from a mix 
1/2 cup dulce de leche or caramel sundae sauce, see note below 


1?4 cup each, melted white, semi-sweet, and milk chocolate 
Chocolate shavings 
Confectioner's sugar 

• Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
Spray a 10 inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line the 
bottom and sides of the pans with parchment paper, cut to fit, allowing 
the side pieces to extend a bit over top of pan to make a collar. Mix 
the crust ingredients together and press into the pan. 
• In a mixer, cream the cheese with the sugar until smooth. Add in the 
condensed milk and blend in the eggs, cream, flour, vanilla, and the 
pinch of salt until smooth, about 5 minutes on slowest speed, scraping 
bottom of the mixing bowl often to make sure batter does not stick in 
well of bowl. 
• Remove one-third of batter and mix it with the white chocolate. Pour 
this into the cheesecake pan. Fold in the remaining ingredients, except 
the dulce or caramel sauce, into the cheesecake batter. Mix gently by 
hand so as not to break up the brownie chunks too much. Fold half the 
batter into the pan on top of the white chocolate cheesecake batter and 
then drop dollops of half the dulce or caramel sauce all over. Top with 
remaining batter and then remaining dulce or caramel sauce. Stir with a 
knife very briefly. Pan will be very full. Place cheesecake on the baking 
sheet and bake until set about 45-55 minutes. 
• Cool in oven an hour and then in fridge overnight. Remove from pan 
and set on a serving plate. Before serving, drizzle on melted milk, 
white and dark chocolate over top, allowing it to drip down on side. 
On top of melted chocolate, garnish with large chocolate shavings and 
dust with confectioners' sugar. 
• Note: Dulce de leche is time consuming and somewhat difficult to make. 
It is readily available at better grocery stores in the Latin foods section. 
Just in case you can't find it. Here is the recipe. 

Dulce de leche

5 cups whole milk 
1-1?2 cups sugar 
1 vanilla bean, split 
1 teaspoon baking soda 

• Place the milk in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. 
Bring to a boil and allow skin to form on top. Do not stir. The skin 
will thicken and puff up. Reduce heat to medium and remove the skin. 
• Increase heat to medium-high and repeat the process 3 times. Add 
the sugar and vanilla bean, and stir until the sugar has melted, 
about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in the baking soda. 
Simmer milk, stirring often, but taking care not to break the film 
of cooked milk forming, on the inside of the pan. Simmer, skimming 
the foam (not skin) until reduced by half, about 1 hour. 
• Reduce the heat to very low and simmer for another 3-1?2 hours, 
stirring and skimming foam occasionally. The mixture will brown as 
it cooks. 
• Strain the completely cooked mixture through a sieve into a bowl, 
cover and refrigerate.

Hi Susie,

See below. The problem lies not in finding onion marmalade recipes, but in not knowing which of the many such recipes your daughter tasted.


Red Onion Marmalade

 Amount    Measure     Ingredient
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
  8              Cups        Red Onion Slices -- thinly sliced
  3              Cups        Granulated Sugar
  2              Cups        Cider Vinegar
Be sure onion is cut evenly, not a mixture of uneven thickness.

Simmer on medium heat until marmalade syrup is liquid honey consistency 
and the onion is tender. Keep stirring as it will burn easily.

6 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
3 cups sherry or red wine vinegar
3 cups sugar
2-4 bay leaves

Place all ingredients in a non-reactive, thick-bottomed pot over low heat. 
Simmer until almost all liquid has evaporated and onions are translucent. 
Set aside to cool. Place in glass jars and refrigerate. Will keep for 4-6 

This savory jam is well-matched with pates and terrines, or on roasted 
meats and chicken.

This recipe is an adaptation of the one served at the Le Chardonny 
Restaurant in Los Angeles, where Chef Claude Alviry puts the marmalade 
on top of slices of toasted french bread and garnishes it with chopped 
egg and watercress. The marmalade recipe was printed in the LA Times, 
SOS column (reader request column) a few years ago; and was chosen by 
the the Times food staff as one of the ten best recipes of the year from
their newspaper.

Cook for 45 minutes until it reaches the consistency of marmalade. 
Add wine if needed to keep marmalade from scorching. 
Serve on slices of toasted french bread, garnished with chopped hardboiled 
egg and watercress.
