This is a great recipe. The flavor is out of this world with a creamy consistency and I have to say better than any store bought cheese cake. I leave out the chocolate chips, because they have a tendency to sink to the bottom. (maybe coating with flour would keep this from happening). I'm making this again today with a shortbread crust because I don't have any graham crackers on hand. It's a wonderful and decadent treat that I MUST spoil myself with from time to time. Tip: Don't over mix this or it will crack and bake until the very center is still just a tiny bit jiggly.

Great! I subbed 2 of the tsp of coffee for 2 tsp cocoa so it was more of a mocha cheesecake and I skipped out on the chocolate chips. I'll be making it again!

I made this a few wks ago following instructions to the t. It was my first cheesecake ever. The flavor & texture was great, but it was not pretty (had alot of craters). I topped it with fresh strawberries & I made a sauce with preserves & cornstarch. The topping complimented it. I am baking this again tonight with a few alterations: i used fat free cream cheese, added cocoa to coffee & cream, and put eggs last. I also baked it in a "bath" and lowered baking temp to 325 to see if i can reduce cracking- so far it looks better-we'll see how it turns out...

This was my first time EVER to make a cheesecake... mine didn't look that pretty... it sank in the middle (not sure how to avoid that), but my husband and dinner guests RAVED about it saying it was the best cheesecake ever. My husband's only complaint was he did not like the chocolate chips, so next time I'll just leave those out. I made my Chocolate Vodka Sauce and poured it on top. A big hit!!

I made this for fathersday and everyone raved about it being better than the cheesecake shops , THANKYOU !! . I did substitute chocolate biscuits for the crust and alas I forgot to add the chocolate chips of all things, but it was phenomenal just the same. Thanks again !

Wonderful cheesecake! I made this for my son's birthday and everyone thought it was as good as a pastry shop cheesecake. I used chocolate crumbs for the crust, but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I would use mini chocolate chips instead of the regular ones - I found the larger chunks a bit too much for me, (although no else did!) I'll be making this one again.
