Recipe Comments & Reviews

Has anyone done the math for the cost of this?
Had no chocolate chips so I just melted semi-sweet chocolate with cream over very low heat. Delicious!
This cheesecake is the best cheesecake I have ever made. It's easy, creamy, has a blend of coffee and chocolate flavor. simply delicious. I took the other reviewers advice; I used chocolate cream filled Oreo for crust, I didn't reduce the amount of butter, but I will do next time. I drizzled white chocolate on top. I also wiped the knife clean after each cut. I refrigerated it for about 10 hours before cutting it. I cut it to small squares, and it looks great. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for such easy and excellent recipe, and thanks for the reviewers comments, it helped a lot.
This is always a hit. Suggestions: cut small portions because this is a rich dessert. Wipe knife clean between each cut for neat edges. I drizzle melted white chocolate across the top for a beautiful contrast.
These were delicious! Rich, creamy, chocolatey, coffee goodness. Not too sweet or heavy. And they were easy to prepare. A definite keeper!
These are so good. I have made these several
times and I never fail to recieve postitive
feedback from all who try them! I always
have to give the recipe to at least one
person! tip: Make sure you they are
properly chilled before you serve them
otherwise they will make a mess and be hard
to cut...
Also I have always used oreo cookies and a
little less butter for the crust.

January 6, 2016 by Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
