For Chocolate Nut Crust:
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix chocolate wafer crumbs, nuts, and sugar together. Put in bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Pour melted butter over top, use a fork to blend mixture, and press into bottom of pan. Cook 15–20 minutes until lightly browned. Remove, and cool slightly. Reduce oven to 325°.
In food processor or with electric mixer, beat cream cheese until soft. Beat in 3/4 cup sugar, flour, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Beat in egg yolks and sour cream. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites and remaining 1/4 cup sugar until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites into cream cheese mixture. Pour 2/3 of batter into baked crust. Melt chocolate with amaretto in top of double boiler. Add to remaining batter. Gently blend. Starting at outside edge, pour chocolate batter onto white batter in a swirl pattern, ending up in middle of pan.
Place in 325° oven for 50 minutes. Turn the oven off. Prop door open 2–3 inches and let cheesecake sit for 2 hours. Remove to rack to cool. Chill before serving. I usually serve this with chocolate sauce.
