This is fantastic! Chocolate cream cheese, coconut, and pecans. Who cares what else! LOL! Seriously, this is some kind of good! It is baked in a 13X9inch baking dish. So invite all of the neighbors. I found this on a calendar I received from Kraft. Cooking time includes chill time.

Thanks Fluffster for posting this recipe. I had seen it in my Kraft calendar too and was glad to find it posted here for safe keeping. Made this for my family bar-b-q and it turned out good. I probably over-cooked it a little as it was dry but still good. The chocolate crust was a real winner with everyone. I had trouble with the frosting, not enough to cover the cake and seemed to thick to spread as I thought it should, So maybe next time (and I will make it again) I'll just look for another frosting recipe and maybe use milk chocolate to see if it'll work better with the chocolate crust. All in all a good recipe, and my problems could have been the result of my lack of cooking skills.
Nice cheesecake recipe. I added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. After cutting into squares, i squiggled a lil white chocolate over the top of each, and placed in a large paper muffin cup. I made these for a ladies card party I am catering this evening. I sampled a piece, and I'm sure they will enjoy.....
