I have a great recipe for cheesecake. I want to use this recipe and make it a chocolate cheesecake. What can I add to make it a chocolate cheesecake?

I'm guessing you want to use a cheesecake recipe you already know and love, and then add chocolate flavor.
But when you add ingredients, it often changes the balance of ingredients and the texture.
If it were you, I might make a recipe this is already chocolate cheesecake, and has been proven in use, e.g.

It very likely doesn’t matter. Either one would probably be just fine.

The answer is likely melted (cooled a bit) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, but it’s difficult to say without knowing the recipe.

I wrote all the ingredients on here, but here they are again:
Milk, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, cream cheese and sour cream.
I know how much chocolate to use, I just need to know what kind would be best, bittersweet or semisweet.
Thank you

Quantities would also be great. I’m sure you can add either but it could alter the quantity of some of the other ingredients.
