YUM YUM! This is THE BEST cheesecake ever! Everyone that tasted it fell to the floor. I served it with a dollop of whipped cream and a raspberry for decoration. It is so rich and easy to make. This is a keeper!


The end result was a VERY rich, smooth cheesecake. One has to be a big chocolate lover to fully appreciate this cheesecake. I did bake this in a water-bath, wrapping the spring form pan in foil to avoid water or filling leaks, then let the cake cool for 1hr. in the oven when turned off without opening the door. and....Viola! Abosolutely no cracks and a beautiful presentation for dessert after chilling for 4hours! Easy recipe to impress guests with!


Oh man! Oh man! Oh man! I made this for a friend for her birthday without ever making it before hoping from the reviews that it would be wonderful. There was no reason to be nervous! What an amazing cheesecake!!! I wrapped it the sides and underneath the pan with foil and baked it in a waterbath then let it cool in the oven for an hour followed by an hour on the counter. Then I let it chill in the fridge overnight. I have all kinds of requests for individual size cheesecakes now. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that could be served in a restaurant!
