German Chocolate Cheesecake

2 (4 oz.) bars German sweet chocolate, broken into pieces
11 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons natural (unsweetened) cocoa
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
1 packaged graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz.)
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
additional cocoa for topping (optional)

    1. Place chocolate chunks in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted when stirred. Set aside to cool.
    2. Mix cream cheese, sugar, cocoa and butter in large bowl until creamy. Gradually add melted chips, beating on low speed until blended. Fold in whipped topping until blended; spoon into crust. If desired, use a flour sifter to cover top with cocoa. Top with coconut and pecans. Refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours).
