Originally found on the HersheysKitchens.com site. This is fantastically wonderful!!! It is too much - it is so awesome! Can't find anymore expletives to describe this dessert. Hope you enjoy this as much as we have over the years. I did not include 3 hour refrigerator time in passive cook time. Also, the Triple Drizzle is optional. Don't let the long list of explanations bother you it is mostly repetitive. Give it a try - I am sure you will like it.

This a wonderful recipe and I have a low calorie recipe of the exact same thing using splenda and sugar-free chips etc. which is just as good with considerably less calories and carbs, which I have made for family holidays and get-togethers and some of the people who have diabetes are able to eat it.

My first try at a "real" cheesecake and this was a HIT!!! We were invited over to a friend's house for dinner, and everyone was impressed at it's beautiful presentation and wowed by the fact that it was homemade! The only changes I made -- used graham crumbs in place of the wafers, made the crust a little larger, and baked in a 10" pan. Rich, tasty, and delicious... what more can I say about this?!?! :D

Gone! That is all I can say. LOL! I made this for a church fellowship and it was devoured. I had a ton of compliments on it, so I know it must have been good even though I personally didn't get a piece. :( LOL! Thanks for the great recipe!!
