Not really a cheesecake, I was hoping for one. If you cut one slice, the rest of the pie fills up the space.

this did not turn out well for me. The cream cheese/chocolate filling had barely any chocolate taste, and mostly an unsweetened cream cheese flavor. And letting it set for only 15 minutes (I actually let it set about 30), and then drizzling the chocolate syrup over the top was a big mistake. Two hours later when I went to get it out of the fridge it appeared that the hot fudge sauce had caused the filling to sort of 'break down' and it was very liquidy and not appetizing. The chocolate crust with the caramel on top was the only good part.

Instead of carmels, I used 3 small containers of carmel apple dip ($0.99 each) and it worked great.
