READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You may not bother baking cheesecake again once you try this! --- I strongly recommend to use only Philadelphia brand cream cheese I have made this using other brands and it was not as good, plan ahead there is a 5 hour chilling time ---for chocolate option see bottom of the recipe

Use this recipe all the time when I need a cheesecake fix at home. Love the chocolate option and sprinkle crushed butterfinger or heath candy bars on top.
