Cream together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time then add remaining ingredients and mix until combined. Do not over mix. Pour white chocolate layer into a pan and refrigerate until you've finished mixing milk chocolate layer.

Milk Chocolate Layer:

Cream together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time then add remaining ingredients and mix until combined. Do not over mix. Pour milk chocolate layer on top of white chocolate layer and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes.

Fudge Cake Layer:

Prepare store bought cake mix as directed on package for 2 layer cake. Pour into 10-inch round battered and floured cake pan. Add batter until about 2/3 full and bake as directed. Remove from oven and cool. Torte cake by cutting it in 2 layers horizontally making about 1-inch cake layers. Put cooled, torted cake on top of cooled cheesecake.

Dark Chocolate Ganache Frosting:

In a heavy pan heat whipping cream, butter and powdered sugar to a boil while whisking constantly. Place chips in a large stainless steel bowl, add hot cream mixture and let set for 5 minutes. Whisk together until smooth. Let cool until it reaches spreading consistency. Cover assembled cheesecake. Garnish with as much chocolate as you can stand.
