This is the best cheesecake I have ever tasted low carb or otherwise! absolutely sinful! out of this world. I can't say enough. got this off Godiva web site and converted it low carb. the chocolate bars are available at any Walmart in the pharmacy (those are good too, but don't eat too much or you will get a very upset tummy.)

My two daughters made this cheesecake for my birthday. It was the best cheesecake I ever had. Instead of using 12 oz of the sugar free dark delite chocolate, they used 9 oz of sugar free Hershey's Special Dark. I've never had the "real" Govida chocolate cheesecake, but if someone told me that my cake was the real thing, I wouldn't doubt it for a second. The only down side is, my daughters and I ate the entire cheesecake in two days.
Delicious! I added a nut crust of 1-3/4 cups of finely chopped walnuts and pecans, mixed with 3 tablespoons melted butter. Press mixture onto bottom and sides of springform pan. I baked it for 15 minutes, let it cool, then added cheese mixture. It adds to the calories and fat but still remains low-carb. Also replaced some of the SF chocolate with 1 bar of 70% Lindt dark chocolate just in case the sugar free chocolate might cause me some digestive issues. Loved it!
This is very dark and rich. I used 12 oz. of Hershey's Special Dark Sugar Free chocolate. It's like a cross between a truffle filling and fudge. Very rich. I'd make changes to the recipe before making it again - especially to use less chocolate.
