Preheat oven to 165°C (325°F). Mix crushed chocolate chip cookies and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
Mix cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Mix sour cream and vanilla extract. Stir in melted chocolate. Pour over crust in springform pan.
Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the dough is firm and jiggles slightly in the center. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen them. Let cool for another hour. Refrigerate overnight.
For the topping, combine condensed milk, 1 cup sugar, beaten egg yolk, and butter in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until thickened, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat; add vanilla, coconut, and pecans and mix. Let cool until thick enough to spread.
Spread topping on cheesecake before serving. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
