Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

A very delicious and decadent cheesecake, if you love chocolate as much as I do.....then this cheesecake recipe is for you. It is one that I make quite often, a great never-fail recipe. (note: plan ahead, this cheesecake needs to stay in the fridge overnight)

chill overnight in fridge? yeah right! this is already fast disappearing and i haven't even got around to taking a picture of it yet - i mean whenever i take it out of the fridge to shoot i end up tucking into it, but hopefully can capture it before it disappears! made as stated except i added a touch of cocoa and i decorated it with a chocolate glaze. thanks for another winner, KC!
