Preheat Oven to 325. Coat 9 inch Springform pan with Pam. Crush wafers very fine and mix with butter in pan. Press in bottom of pan and 1 inch up on sides to form the crust. Bake 7 minutes. While crust is still hot add ½ cup chocolate chips to the crust evenly.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar. Beat eggs in one at a time. Blend in Bailey’s Irish Cream. Add vanilla. Don’t overbeat.
Pour into pan and top with the other ½ cup chocolate chips, pushing gently into filling.
