      Wonderful! I decided to go w/ a raspberry topping but followed the recipe here for the crust and cheesecake; it was really good!

      This was good, but just a bit too chocolatey, didn't like the texture of the pieces of maraschino cherries inside the cake either. Probably just a personal preference, but even the kids weren't pleased with this one. I think I should stick with plain cheesecake, but thanks for sharing :)

      Made this for my hubby's boss for her birthday. I have once again, thanks to recipezaar, cemented my place as the chef of the gym! I used a chocolate graham cracker pie crust I already had and just formed it into the springform pan. I have only made cheesecake one other time before and I have a feeling now that this will be a regular request for me to make. Thanks for the great recipe!!
