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.
