Add coffee and cocoa mixtures to remaining cream cheese mixture; continue beating until well mixed. Pour cocoa-cream cheese mixture over baked crust.

I made it several times. It is always a favorite. Follow the recipe exactly and you won't have any leftover from the church supper.
This is an awesome cheesecake. I have made many cheesecakes from scratch, but this one tops them all. I added 2 teaspoons more of the coffee granules for a little more coffee flavor in the second one I made. Everyone in our house, and a couple of our neighbors loved it too...Cheesecakes are quite easy to make if you really enjoy baking, and this recipe is just great.
This cheesecake is excellent! Everyone that tried it, raved about how pretty it was and how excellent the flavor was.
My first attemt at homemade NY style cheesecake. It cracked badly but tasted wonderful. Next time I will lower the cooking temp. I saved the apperance with raspberry topping.

Some people say their weakness is chocolate. Others say potato chips. My weakness is brunch. The sweet and savory combinations of brunch food are irresistible. I have spent many hours in search of the best brunch in town, and I am being totally honest when I say I found it in my own kitchen.

ginger and sesame to a
