I made this for a church dinner and didn't get to clean the knife off and it was gone -- it didn't take long for anyone to grab it up -- it was excellent -- made it at least twice more and would make it again. Loved it!

This was a lovely dessert, but I don't care for the toffee bits. I prefer a smooth truffle. I love coffee desserts so I added 2 tsp instant coffee granules to the crust and to the topping, and for a special flavor, I substituted 2 tsp rum extract for the vanilla. This is much more to my liking as the coffee seems to cut down on the sweetness as well as give it the flavor that I enjoy. I will be making several of these to give as gifts for the holidays.

I am so glad I tried this recipe. This was the first time I ever made a cheesecake. It was very easy to make, and the the taste and texture are fantastic! The ganache topping is an extra bonus. My friends and family loved it. I will definitely make this cheesecake again!
