    I made one of these cheesecakes at Thanksgiving and it was so easy and popular that I made another for Christmas. The chocolate marble also makes a nice impression.

    Something Unique for the Holidays!

    Patricia Morales from Largo, FL

    I always make this cheesecake around the Holiday season. Its so easy to make and the chips at the bottom of the crust and the swirled chocolate make this one a winner! There is no other Pumpkin cheesecake recipe I would ever make then this one!

    the best cheesecake

    Robin Hoyle from North Carolina

    We had a cheesecake making contest at work and everyone talked me into trying my luck. I have never made a cheesecake before so I went on this website and choose the Marble Pumpkin Cheesecake. Not only was it easy to make, it was good. Good enough to come in 2nd and win a $25 gift card. If you love pumpkin and cheesecake you must try this one.

    I not only sold two cakes (I sell my baked goods and have built quite a list of clientel from some of this site's recipes), but brought an extra one in on thanksgiving and it disappeared in 20 minutes!! I used gingersnaps for crust and it came out great!

    Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

    Shara Malone from DePere, WI

    I adore this recipe! I began making it two years ago, and it is now a Thanksgiving tradition. It brings together two of my favorite seasonal flavors, pumpkin and chocolate, in the most delicious way. And believe it or not, chocolate and pumpkin go very well together. This year I will try the water bath to prevent cracking -- thanks for the tip! But frankly it's so delicious, it can crack all it wants :-)

    Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

    Sharon Jensen from MARSHALLTOWN, IA

    I've made this cheesecake 3 times this fall and it has turned out perfectly each time. It looks like you've mastered a very difficult recipe when it is served; however, it is a very simple recipe to make.

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!!!

    Sandra Clements from JACKSON, MO

    I wasn't sure about pumpkin and chocolate together, but it was wonderful. Anyone who likes pumpkin pie will like this. I used a purchased graham cracker crust and it worked great, I will try a purchased chocolate crust the next time. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the great alternative to pumpkin pie.

    Oh my goodness this is scrumptious!! Not hard to make either. I just love it! I had never seen this flavor of cheesecake before and just had to try it. I'm glad I did!

    Love the chocolate chips!

    Melanie Moreland from HICKORY, NC

    I used regular-sized chocolate chips and WOW I love the slightly crunchy chocolate bits you get with each bite. It's the perfect contrast to the rest of the creamy cheesecake. I will definitely be making this again.

    The best cheesecake for Thanksgiving

    Cynthia Chmelewski from WEST CHESTER, PA

    Since no one in my house likes pumpkin pie, I decided to try this cheesecake as a Thanksgiving dessert. What a hit!!!!! I changed things up just a bit using chocolate graham crackers rather than regular and also using more chocolate chips. This gave the cheesecake a more chocolate flavor with a hint of pumpkin rather than the other way around. I also blended one third less Neuchatal cheese with a block of fat free cream cheese to lighten the recipe and reduce just a few calories. The cake was creamy, rich and wonderful. It will be a Thanksgiving tradition from now on!

    Thanksgiving Treat

    Stacey Wenzel from BELEN, NM

    We did not have a lot of people over for Thanksgiving this year, so I only made one desert. I wanted something traditional, but cheesecake is our favorite. This recipe was perfect! My husband thought it could use a little more pumpkin, but I liked it the way it was. Great recipe!

  •  Star(s)

    Very Rich!

    Salome Phillips from Arlington, TX

    This is a very rich cheesecake. Complex flavor of dark chocolate and pumpkin. Very good to serve on it's own with some coffee perhaps. Pretty easy to make.

    Best Holiday Dessert

    Sherry Owens from Statesville, NC

    I started making this cheesecake about 5 or 6 years ago. It was a huge hit with my family and I now get requests for it during the holidays and other occasions. Some have mentioned the cracked top, and it is easily fixed by baking the cheesecake in a waterbath. I deffinitely recommend this recipe for anyone looking for a new holiday recipe, or anyday for that matter.

  •  Star(s)

    Fantastic cheesecake

    Christina Prochownik from Prince Frederick, MD

    I have been making this chessecake for quite a few years now - at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's DEFINITELY worth the calories! Try a small dish of water on the bottom rack of the oven, and mix the ingredients together on a slower mixing speed and you will have less of a chance of your chessecake cracking (although the cheesecake cracks sometime no matter what you do) ENJOY! :-)

    I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE ON HOW THIS IS A WONDERFUL, SWEET RECIPE. I MAKE THIS DELICIOUS CHEESECAKE FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND I ALSO GIVE IT TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS AS A GIFT TO THE ONES WHO DON'T LIKE TO BAKE. THE DIRECTIONS ARE SO EASY THAT MY 13 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER MAKES IT BY HERSELF. IF YOU WANT TO GIVE SOME LOVE, MAKE THIS CHESSECAKE!

    Awesome Pumpkin Cheesecake

    Michelle Sagan from Laurel, MD

    In the fall of 2000 I made this and took it to work for a Thanksgiving treat for some of my co-workers and then to an extended family Thanksgiving dinner. It was such a huge hit at both places I am still getting requests for it and people are offering to pay me to make it for them. I use oat graham crackers for the crust and they make it a little crunchier! Best recipe I've come across for a pumpkin cheesecake ever!

  •  Star(s)

    Awesome!

    Janine Franco from Los Angeles, CA

    I made the cheesecake for Thanksgiving. It was awesome. It was easy to make, although it cracked on top but it was still great. It was just as good as a bakery cheesecake. My family couldn't believe I made it! It's going to be made every Thanksgiving and whenever I get a craving for pumpkin.

    The Best Ever!

    Ursula Fuery from Rego Park, NY

    Since everyone in my family loves chocolate and cheesecake so much, the merging of the two was a Godsend. This is my 5th year making this delectable dessert and the family can't wait for Thanksgiving Day. With some fresh whipped cream it's even more perfect!!!

    Pumpkin & chocolate?

    Kim Sherman from POTSDAM, NY

    Yes! And it was absolutely wonderful! I split the recipe(didn't want it too thick & needed to share) by making the crust & also using a ready made crust; just sprinkled some extra chocolate chips in the bottoms. It was great to be able to have one @ home & one to share.

    Easy Cheesecake

    Cheryl Holm from HAYWARD, CA

    This was a very easy to make and wonderful tasting cheesecake. I also changed it a little and added Kahlua to really make it pop. I recommend it to anyone who wants a fabulous dessert without a lot of work.

    Yummy

    Jan Hunter from OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

    We were recently treated to a similar cheesecake and decided to try this recipe to make our own. This recipe definitely tops the professionally made cheesecake we ate at a local restaurant. One thing we will do a little bit differently next time is: divide the mixture into 3 parts, adding the melted chocolate to one, pumpkin to another and leave the third part plain. Layering with the chocolate first, pumpkin in the middle and the plain on the top. After baking and cooling, drizzle and extra 1/2 cup of melted chips on top and drizzling about 1/2 cup of caramel ice cream topping on that...serving with a small dollop of sour cream as a garnish.

    Absolutely The Best Cheesecake

    Sabrina Rodabaugh from McComb, OH

    This was my first cheesecake, I have ever made and I was astoned by how easy it was. Not only am I a chocolate lover, but most of all I am a cheesecake lover. This is hands down the best dessert I have ever had. I took it to a family dinner and my family was skeptical at first, but turns out everyone loved it. Almost too depressing(no leftovers)!! Just have to make another one!!

    I won first place in a baking contest at work with this recipe! If it had not been for the crack in the top of the cheesecake, everyone would have thought that I bought it at a store! You can't go wrong with this one. A crowd favorite.

    TRACY HAINES from YUBA CITY, CA

    I made this cheesecake last year and again this year. This year I made it for my family and to my surprise everyone liked it. My family is picky and stick to what they always have. I was hoping for lots of left overs to myself, next year I'll make 2.

    A Thanksgiving winner!

    Laura Traster from BUTLER, IN

    I made this for a Thanksgiving reunion. It was a very rich & dense cheesecake. The pumpkin flavor was light and not overpowering. It did have a few steps to put it all together but for a baker with some experience it shouldn't be a problem. I give it two thumbs - way up!!!
