Directions
1.
In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, the melted butter, coconut, and pecans. Press into bottom and 1/2 inch up side of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly.

For filling, in a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, the 3/4 cup granulated sugar, the sour cream, and vanilla. Add the flour and beat well. Add the eggs and cooled chocolate; beat until just combined.
4.
Turn the filling into the cooled crust. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until the center appears nearly set when you shake it. Cool for 15 minutes. Loosen the side of the cheesecake from the side of the pan. Cool for 30 minutes. Remove the side of the pan.
