I made this for my husband's Easter potluck. When he called me in the afternoon he said, and I quote " I went in the lunchroom to get the pan and caught a guy licking it" Gross, but you get the point! Apparently, it was a huge hit and not a morsel was left. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I had to make alterations suggested by a few other members in order to get the recipe to work. 1. I melted the chocolate chips 2. I added approximately 7 minutes to the cooking time as it was undercooked after the suggested time. Thank you for the great recipe!!


Absolutly wonderful cheesecake. I made mine in a pie dish and it still comes out fine. I also use an oreo crust (about half a bag of oreos and 3/4 stick of melted butter)- hey.. if your gonna go chocolate... go all the way! I omit the chocolate chips (to keep the smooth velvety texture) and add 1/4 C expresso to make a "chocolate cappachino" cheesecake. Personally, I think it tastes better than that choc capp. cheesecake recipe on here and WAY easier!! I dont use the sour cream topping because the cheesecake has such a beautiful chocolatly color by itself... Thank you for the recipe!


I misread the recipe and melted the chocolate chips before mixing them into the cheesecake mixture. It was a good mistake to make. The cake is rich and creamy and so chocolatey. I also added a tiny bit of cinnamon and topped it with sliced fresh strawberries. I used a ready-made chocolate crumb crust. Yum!
