    This cheesecake was delicious. I made it for Thanksgiving dessert, and it was a hit. It's very chocolately but still not overly sweet. It's more of a dense cheesecake, which I like. Loved it and would definitely make it again.

    I have been making this fantastically rich cheesecake for years, mostly by request for parties, showers, and food days. It is always a hit and requested over and over! Super easy and really impressive, it makes people I have way more talent than I do!

    My father gave me this recipe years ago to try, and now my son insists I make it for his birthday every year, as I will be doing today. I'm pulling out my tattered recipe for this delicious cheesecake once again
