Being american and living in the UK I wanted to celebrate thanksgiving and because there are several chocoholics in my husbands family i wanted to try a chocolate cheesecake. This recipe was great but i did a few minor changes. Instead of semisweet chocolate I replaced it with Cadburys Dairy Milk bar instead and used more than 4 squares. I used the really giant sized bars over here and used most of it. I also used double fudge chocolate chip cookies for the crust since you cant find regular choc. cookies over here. For a good texture I did give it a water bath in the oven and I kept it a little longer than 40 minutes to get the smooth texture I was wanting. It turned out amazing and those who were lucky enough to take some home acted like they were taking home something really special. I'd definately fix this recipe again. It was easy and very irresistible!! A definate keeper! Read More

I liked this recipe because it could be made with ingredients I usually have on hand anyways. Simple. Quick. And very yummy! Instead of coffee-flavored liqueur I used 3 tsp. of espresso powder. Served it to company and everyone loved it. Would definitely make again. Read More

This was good. It is not my favorite recipe but I might be prejudice against chocolate cheesecake. I added 6 oz. of chocolate instead of 4. It was not very cheesy. Read More

Very good! I was looking for a chocolate cheesecake recipe that was made in a ready-made crust as I didn't have a lot of time but wanted to make something chocolate. This was it! It was quick and easy and came out creamy and rich. Perfect for us! My daughter was quite pleased with it. I know I'll make this again. Read More
