    Daniel'sWife's Note:

    An original recipe, created by my husband, Daniel. This intensely rich and decadent dark chocolate cheesecake is pebbled with tart, dried Bing cherries. I doubt you've ever tasted anything quite like it!

      I made this for my husband's birthday and he says it is 4.5 stars. We used unsweetened dried cherries and they tasted great with the dark chocolate. The recipe was really easy but makes a great special occasion dessert! The only thing I might say is to cut back the amount of cherries if you want to taste more of the chocolate cheesecake-pretty much every bite had a cherry in it and it was hard for me to taste just the cheesecake.
