This was my first time making a cheesecake, and it was delicious! Easier than I had thought it would be, and something I'll definitely make often. Thank you for the video...that helped a whole lot
This cheesecake was easy to make and it is out of this world!! I melted down 6 cubes of semi-sweet baking chocolate in a double boiler and spread it on top of the cheesecake and it was scrumptious!! (I refridgerated it for about ten minutes to harden the chocolate.) Add cherries and it was even better!! Deffinitely have to make this one more often!
