READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Rhonda *J*

Another AWESOME cheesecake I get rave reviews from. I clipped this recipe from a Better Homes & Gardens magazine and I love it--worth the effort. I prefer to use the fresh raspberries and I sometimes drizzle additional melted chocolate on top. The two layer effect makes for a nice presentation. SO YUMMY!

I made this for my friends for a dinner. It turned out so perfect and delicious! I've not had a lot of luck with cheesecakes in the past so I was thrilled with the result. I took a bunch of photos. The 2 layers are elegant and dramatic. Fabulous taste. An excellent recipe.
