Served it Christmas Eve and it was fantastic. I do recommend using the tiny candy canes to crush if you cannot by pre-crushed canes. The larger ones are tough to break.

Was looking for a twist on the normal cheesecake for Christmas. This recipe is great.

Really good...had to use meat hammer to crush candy canes, but made a very pretty topping.

I agree, great recipe, but I used chocolate cookie (Oreos) instead of graham crackers. Everything else was stock. I had many compliments!

This was awesome. I made one change that made a huge difference: I used OREO cookies instead of vanilla wafers. It was so much better that way. DELICIOUS!!!!! No leftovers.

This is delicious! I used a pre-made graham cracker crust and sub'd milk chocolate chips for the white chocolate. Very very good. I will defiantly make it again with the white chocolate.
