Delicious !!! I made it with a dark mint chocolate I had in the pantry. Everyone loved it but I dont think I would ever get the chance to freeze it it disappeared from the plate !!!!!! This cheesecake is perfect for a great tasting dessert on a hot summers night. I will be making this one again !!! Thanks Jen.
