It's easy to make this rich but light chocolate cheesecake, topped with fresh strawberries, because you use a ready-made cookie crust.

I used this recipe to make a filling for a cake. It was pretty good but I made a few changes. First I couldn't find cool whip dips so I just combined cool whip with instant chocolate pudding mix; it worked well. Also I added some crushed oreo cookies to the mix. Next time I make it I will include more cool whip and some sour cream. Read More

This is an easy recipe. I too could not find the cool whip DIPS. I added a small package instant chocolate pudding to cream chees mixture and then folded in the regular cool whip. Worked Will make again. Read More

Awesome and easy. I made this and took it to the bake-off in Cincinnati Ohio and I had just enough time to make it. The judges gave me first prize!!! Read More

This recipe was super easy. The only problem I had was finding the Cool Whip Dips- Chocolate. Like a previous reviewer I used instant chocolate pudding. I thought that gave the cool whip a bit of an odd texture but it tasted great. Read More

I have made this several times. I use alternative sweetner and it is great for people with diabetes or low carb diet. It's not 100% diet this way but it helps. Read More

OH MY GOSH. If you love chocolate and/or mousse then this is the cheesecake for you! LOVE this. I don't think Cool Whip Dips are available anymore so I did what other reviewers suggested: one tub of cool whip a small box of chocolate pudding a splash of milk. It turned out perfectly. So easy and delicious! Read More

Like others who commented I tried adding the chocolate pudding mix in. It made the mixture gritty so I added a little extra cool whip (ended up using the whole container just about) and drizzled in some milk very slowly until the grittiness was gone. Read More
