This is my long lost loved. I first discovered this recipe when I was about 19 years old. I don't know where I got the recipe from. I remembering making it about 3x's. I even invited my 13 year old cousin to come and spend the night and I would show her how to make this recipe for a party our family was throwing the next day. We had a blast making this together. I somehow ended up losing this recipe. I have thought about it often over the years. I have mentioned it to people when talking about cheesecakes or recipes and no one I spoke with was familar with this recipe. I have tried googling it before but didn't find what I was looking for then one day I was looking up cheesecake recipes on this site and up popped this one! Yeah! Finally! I was sooo excited. I later showed it to my 13 year old daugther and she was excited as well. She wants to make them next week and already she is planning what toppings she'll use....'chocolated drizze, mini chocolate chips, and hmmm' (her mind drifts off deep into thought). I'm so excited that I found this and can now pass along to my oldest daughter. By the way, the ingredient list says vanilla wafers is that the same as the vanilla nilla cookies? That's what I always used. Thanks for posting and helping me find my long lost love.
These were well received when I made them for Christmas last year. My in-laws thought they were awesome and my dh said they were a definite make again. Which is really saying something since he rarely eats sweets! I made ours using mini cupcake liners and topped with heath bits and mini chocolate chips from the baking aisle.
