Peppermint Chocolate Cheesecake

READY IN: 55mins
Top Review by carlady131313

This cheesecake had a great texture and taste, but it is very very rich in taste. It was easy enough to make. I took it to a party and everyone kept saying the same thing, "It's good, but very very rich." A sliver of this cheesecake will do you just fine. Perhaps the topping is so decadent, it just makes this recipe over the edge.
