    Black Bottom Cheesecake

    Phyllis Musicar-Wight from Escondido, CA

    I must admit I was a little skeptical when I didn't see any flour or binding agent in this recipe, but I forged on anyway and followed it to its delicious conclusion. The recipient of this "birthday" cake could not help raving about how much he loved it. He said the white chocolate added that "certain je ne sais quoi" (his words,) and asked if I'd bake it again. Of course, I said yes. I am contemplating using lower fat cream cheese- (not non fat because that stuff is like eating plastic,) and wonder if the recipe will still be as scrumptious.(I'd like to save the fat calories from the cheese.) Perhaps I will try it but make some minicheese cake bites. Thanks Nestle for another winner! I can always count on you. :-)

    Just OK

    ROSEMARIE Miller from SPENCERPORT, NY

    I made this cheesecake and was kind of disappointed. It ended up sinking in the middle so instead of shredding chocolate on top I ended up putting canned cherries on top to make it look prettier. I also prefer cheesecakes made with sour cream versus adding the melted white chocolate.

    Outstanding!

    Faith Adrian from NEW BERN, NC

    I am always searching and/or creating ways of making variations of the classic cheesecake and this one was so easy and delicious. I especially liked the texture of the cake itself. The creme cookies were a welcomed change to the classic graham cracker curst. Will definitely make this one often.

  •  Star(s)

    very easy, very impressive!

    JENNIFER OHLENDORF from MILWAUKEE, WI

    I made this cake for my husband's birthday, and he loved it! He thought I had spent tons of time on it, and I hadn't at all. A couple of weeks later I took one to a baby shower, and also got wonderful reviews. I think it's a great balance between richness and lightness. The second time I made it I individualized it a little. I sprinkled Nestle's swirled morsels over the crust before pouring the cheesecake mixture in, and I put strawberry pie filling on top. I am definitely going to make this one of my "usuals!"

  •  Star(s)

    deliciouse !

    nina kaushik from kissimmee, FL

    I have made this twice so far and will be making it again on my birthday next month . My kids went crazy over it , the second time I made it i added some nestles chocolate chips into the batter and it went from good to GREAAAT!

    A Big Hit!

    Heidi M Stenersen from WILTON, NH

    This was easy to make and was well worth the effort. My only downfall is that I drizzled chocolate over the cheesecake instead, and it made cutting the cheesecake very difficult and very messy. Next time I will just use the chocolate shavings. I brought this to a Super Bowl Party and it was the only thing to disappear out of the whole smorgasbord. Yay...I WON!!

  •  Star(s)

    Great flavor and easy to make

    Dana Jones Mitchell from Oakland, CA

    This cheesecake has a really nice presentation. My family choose it over apple pie this Thanksgiving so I'm making it again for the holidays. I add one cream cheese then egg, one cream cheese then egg, etc... It fluffs it up better.

    Black Botton Cheesecake

    Carol McDade from STATEN ISLAND, NY

    I made this cake for our Sunday dinner dessert and Wow! Can you say yummy!! My husband and kids could not stop raving about it. However, I did not use the chocolate crust (chocolate is not very big in my house), I crushed nilla wafers and used that for the crust and it was fantastic. A definitely must try.

  •  Star(s)

    fantastic!

    Love it and then some

    Anne Peterson from CALIFORNIA, MD

    It was good to have a variety on the theme and when I saw this one I had to send it to my niece and she is not a baker per say--she tried it and loved it cause I know this for a fact as we were baking it at the same time. I loved it for the variety that it offered me at the time and I found it was a crowd pleaser at the same time.

    Awesome

    Lisa Roberts from Bel Air, MD

    This is a cheesecake for those who are also chocolate lovers, since the bottom is chocolate based! It's rated advanced, but even unexperienced bakers can be successful! I like to add Chocolate chips in the cheesecake as well to give it more of a chocolate flavor!

    I used this recipe to make individual cheesecake cups, which turned out great! I used reduced fat cookies for the crust and light cream cheese for the cheesecake to reduce the fat, and it still got rave reviews at a party I took it to. Excellent recipe!
