Great recipe! My family loved it. I bought semi sweet chocolate by mistake and just reduced sugar to 1/2 cup. May double the recipe for fuller pie but loved it! Read More

This recipe is Excellent for Two main reasons.. because it tastes good and because it's Super Easy! The only change I made was to add chocolate shavings to the top for presentation. If you really want to kick the recipe up add finely chopped pecan pieces to your Graham cracker crust.. That's what Copeland's does to all of their cheesecakes. That extra element of nutty flavor kicks everything up a notch. Read More

Spectacular taste and fairly simple to make (as long as you have a stand mixer). I'd recommend making the crust and the whipped cream but loved the silky chocolate filling. Family LOVED it - will be making a 2nd pie tonight. Read More
