Recipe by Carmen B.

Now you can have your chocolate and cheesecake also. Your going to love these squares. They are filling so small sizes are a good idea. Cook time does not include overnight chill time. From Taste of Home.

This is just what I was in the mood for,they're perfect!I was looking for a nice basic crust recipe for when I make cheesecakes.This will be the one I will use from now on.So much better than the cookie crusts.I used chopped almonds instead of walnuts,just my preference.I think almond extract would be nice in the cheesecake filling also.I'll try that next time.Thanks for a great recipe!
