Almost thought I would not be able to make this Dessert. I could find neither the chocolate wafers, nor chocolate graham crackers in any store in our city. Finally found "Chocolate Teddy Gahams". Also needed to find a 7" springform pan. Well I'm glad I prvailed! Thisis a wonderful dessert. Thanks for posting. Made for "PAC Spring 2009"
