    Delicious and super easy to make!
    Like other reviewers have said, this cheesecake is AMAZING! Rich is certainly the right adjective, though, so be prepared - it's worth every calorie, however. Also, and this may be because I'm a relatively new baker, I found that I needed a little more than the listed amount of wafer crumbs to make the crust complete. Perhaps I crushed them too finely - be careful with this part. Otherwise, it's a (delicious) breeze to make.
    So good. Very rich and creamy. Perfect for holidays. We started our party and this cheese cake was gone in 20 minutes. Five stars all the way.
    This is one of the creamiest cheesecakes I have ever made. I have alternated the Heath with the Resees Pieces baking chips for a Fall flavor, and the result was just as pleasing!
