Black and White Cheesecake

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Manami

It seems as if my best friend, Judy, with whom I grew up, has been surfing the net and landed on the Godiva web site, too. I had this cheesecake at her house and we all sat there in quiet silence after an evening of sheer decadence. This was recipe was the last straw! I haven't allowed for chilling and cooling times - it is approximately 24 hours.

I had this cheesecake at a friend's house too. I love a good cheese cake and this hit the spot. It was rich, creamy and wonderful! I loved the contrast between the chocolate crust and the white chocolate filling. Thanks for posting this fantastic recipe, DiScharf!
