This is a wonderful no-bake cheese cake that always gets raves! A lovely chocolate and white marble-topped cheesecake with a layer of praline. I decorate the top of it with pecans and some of the praline mixture. My sister runs a catering business and she liked this so much it is now one of her best sellers.

I was just getting ready to post this very same recipe. It truly is spectacular. It turned DH into a cheesecake lover. It is quite rich, so you only need a small piece. Very impressive to serve.
This is the best no-bake cheesecake ever..I made this for a church social and got raves over it..also had to copy recipe for numerous people..
