    kittycatmom's Note:

    This recipe is tried and true! I make this every year for my Dad's birthday. He asked if I will make it for Easter this year too. I love this, and every time I make it, I think about how much my Dad enjoyes it. I hope you will enjoy it too. Plan ahead - allow minimum of 6 hours to chill. Time DOES NOT include cooling.

      I have made this cake many times. I would recommend leaving the white chips out. Something about having "stuff" in my cheesecake. It doesn't affect the recipe at all. Also, the topping is just way too sweet. The cake, all by itself, SCRUMPTIOUS!

      Yummy & Easy! I made this for a family BBQ & I had a bunch of recipe requests. I didn't serve it with the sauce ( I just didn't care for it) but the rest of it was SCRUMPTIOUS!

      I enjoy cheesecake & this recipe was AN ABSOLUTE JOY to make & even more so in the eathing (although I did allow my son & his wife to abscound with about a quarter of it before the evening was over)! Absolutely loved the combo of flavors here, & served it up topped with a Mandarin orange section, & small slice of pineapple & a light sprinkle of toasted coconut! Thanks for this really great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
