    I agree with the angel choir. Lovely recipe, big hit at the party.

    I'm not sure how to rate this. Everyone seemed to like it well enough, but no one raved about it, and I, personally, did not care for it. I felt the combination of flavors kind of cancelled eachother out. Of course, I should tell you that I didn't exactly follow the directions. I added the rest of the can of pumpkin (about another 1/3 c.) and doubled the spices after tasting the batter and thinking it was fairly bland. In the end, it was a lovely, moist, dense, even pretty cheesecake...I'm just not sure it was my cup of tea!

    I'm pretty sure I heard the Angel Choir sing "ahhhh" when I took the first bite-seriously, AMAZING. Definately will be staying in my recipe drawer-awesome! AND easy to make!

    As a rule, I do not like pumpkin desserts. However, the chocolate offset the strong pumpkin flavor, and wow it is good. I got several compliments on this and now I can feel that I am an American on Thanksgiving.

    This was tonight's dessert and I must say WHOA!! Chocolate and pumpkin are two of my favorite things and to combine them in a cheesecake is just sinful!! I'm writing this comment just to occupy myself and not eat anymore!!! MUST TRY THIS!
