    OMG! Sooo decadent!

    Shay Sully from Ottawa, Canada

    Just made these. I was a little worried I'd mess them up but they are pretty much fool-proof. Bringing them to a dinner party tonight so I already tested them to be sure they were good! Soooo delicious!

    no hard crust to fight with

    bertha doyon from Standish, ME

    i love this recipe the only thing i change was sprinkling the crumb crust in the bottom of the pan than pouring the cream cheese filling over the crumbs then sprinkling the 1 cup crumb over the top and baking it as directed no hard crust on the bottom to fight with

    Sinful Chocolatey Goodness

    Elizabeth B from

    These are absolutely delicious. I brought these to a dinner party and they were a big hit. They are very rich and were hard to cut out of the pan, so they were in odd shapes, but the taste outweighed the lopsided squares by far. Try using a sharp knife dipped in warm water, that helped after I got the first few out of the pan. It also helped to keep the pieces small because they are very rich. I even used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. Next time I might try skim evaporated milk and Splenda Baking Blend too. For the nuts, I used a mix (cashews, peanuts, pecans, almonds). I will definitely make this recipe again!!!

    Wonderful!

    J Abreu from

    What a great recipe! It's easy and has a wonderful chocolate flavor. I also prefer this crust to the traditional graham cracker crust. I use pecans in my crust. One of my favorite cheesecake recipes!

    changed recipe

    james ramey from oak harbor, WA

    This is a good recipe, i tried it it was very good. i just tried it again changing the ingredients on the filling part, i omitted the sugar, and i used the sweetened condensed milk instead of evaperated milk,and i used cocoa powder i used about 9 tablespoons. let me tell you if you are a chocaholic these are for real. they are really rich. a little bit goes a long way, try these with the change like i did let me know what you think.

    wonderful

    Patty Manzano from chicago, IL

    I made this for my family. They all loved it. They couldnt stop talking about how good it was. I used walnuts instead of nuts. It came out great.

    Rich and Yummy

    Peg Barker from SUQUAMISH, WA

    I wanted something chocolate and rich. I love cheesecake but don't have the pan so these were perfect. I sent some to work with my husband and they got rave reviews!

    The Perfect Little Treat

    Julie Caggiano from HAZLET, NJ

    Just tried these yesterday and they were the perfect little treat. Since I am always looking to cut calories and fat I made these with light cream cheese and used an egg substitute instead of the two eggs. The texture was still wonderful. These are great for those who want a piece of something lucscious and still want to be good as you can cut the squares large or small.

    Just Wonderful

    Leslie Lee from CHINA GROVE, NC

    I made this recipe the other day. It was easy to make. My husband really enjoyed it and even took some to work to share. He said everyone thought they were fanstatic.

    Denise Barry from Tucson,Az.

    This recipe is excellent. I didn't have chopped nuts on hand so I substituted with coconut and it went over well.

    Perfect combination!

    Carolyn Abrams from RICHARDSON, TX

    I wanted something cheesecake like but not a cheesecake, because we were having a crowd. This was soooo good! I can't wait to make this again for our New Year's Day gathering. As a matter of fact, this freezes well. We had a couple of pieces left, and, well, I needed room in the freezer, and it was breakfast time, and....

    Fabulous!

    Nicole from White Rock, BC Canada

    Stephany Schumacher from LUCERNE VALLEY, CA

    I do a lot of cheesecakes. And I got to tell this was one of the best I have ever made. I made them over the weekend; because I had company. They went crazy for them!! Thank you so much! Stephany

    Chocolate Cheesecake Squares

    Nancy Stern from Schaumburg, IL

    These were very easy to make and looked just like the picture, but I certainly hope that I did something wrong, because we didn't like them very much. I'm puzzled, because the reviews for this recipe were great. Everyone in my family thought that the filling was way too bitter and I really had a hard time getting the crust out of the baking pan. I've gone over the recipe & can't imagine that I did anything wrong or left anything out, but who knows! If I were to make them again - I would definitely make some changes in the recipe.

    Yummy

    Ruth Shumate from Chesapeake, VA

    So easy and it was a hit with everybody. Want to try it with white chocolate chips or peanut but chips.

    Irresistable!!!!

    Swathi Swarup from kuwait

    This cheesecake was AWESOME , simple irresistable. Being 15 yrs. , this was my first cheesecake. I made it today and had no difficulty, except my crust blackened a little and was crispy. But you know the recipe is good when u can't stop lick'n ur fingers. Since I'm the only one who indulges in sweets in my house , I've painfully decided to share this with my friend and aunt, b4 I gobble the whole thing myself. It's a sure keeper n i will try it again. Did I mention this cheesecake was awesome??!!

    I am the designated baker in my department at work and these seemed so easy I had to try them. They taste great and everyone loves them and even requests that I make them when it's their birthday!

    You better like cheesecake!

    Cathy Luke from Orangevale, CA

    This was a pretty good recipe. It was definitely easy to make and quite tasty. The taste was closer to cheesecake than chocolate and it was very rich. I can imagine that chocolate chips or something could help sway it to the chocolate side for us true chocolate lovers!

    This tastes great if you love a)chololate, and b)cheesecake. I could have used more of the crust and topping to sprinkle on top. Very rich and tasty.

    Mary Ellen Battistelli from Charleston, SC, USA

    These are very rich and decadent--great to bring to the office. The second time I made them, I tried them with peanut butter milk chocolate chips and drizzled them with homemade chocolate syrup... they were to die for! One batch is not enough for this crowd!
