I got this recipe off of this site but made some changes to make it a little bit nicer on the waistline. Thank you 1Steve.

This was oh sooooo good. I made one change though, which I made two regular cheesecakes (using chocolate crumb crusts) instead of one large cheesecake in a springform pan. And it worked out great. Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter, and I would recommend this dessert recipe to anyone. (My cheesecakes were a little warm still when I drizzled the syrups over them, and the chocolate syrup melted and pooled---it didn't effect the taste at all, but they would have looked better had I waited a bit. So I recommend others be careful to wait for the cheesecake to cool completely). It was so delicious though, and I think everyone should try this recipe. Thanks, Newly Mrs. Johnson.
