    I made these twice .. the first time with the chocolate crumb crust, and the second time with a chocolate graham cracker crust and some mini chocolate chips added to the cheesecake batter. I liked the second batch better, but both were really good. This is a nice way to serve cheesecake to a group without having to worry about making a mess!
