Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake

"This is wonderful simple cake to make. I got this from a Kraft magazine. I used about 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of the squares of chocolate. I added Cool Whip to the top after it was cooled and then chocolate shavings on top of that."

    Very rich and creamy. I made a graham cracker crust with slivered almonds mixed in instead of the chocolate crust to try and offset the richness of the chocolate and it was great. My husband couldn't get enough.

    I am making this for Christmas Dinner in 2 wks, but wanted to say it REALLY sounds AWESOME!! My DH HATES cheesecake unless it has chocolate in it. I am going to add a dollop of whipped cream on top and as suggested, drizzle some chocolate over it. Thanks in advance! 12/28 MAde this .. Super easy! Very very dense and rich in flavor.. I suggest serving ONLY small slices and a bit of whip cream on top.

    I made this for a friend't birthday tonight. It was great! I also put cool whip on top, and took the suggestion in the magazine to melt 2 squares of chocolate and mix that with 2 Tbsp of cream and drizzle that over the cake. It was almost too rich for me, but I'm not much of a sweet tooth. Everyone there loved it - one even had seconds!

    Hey, I got that Kraft magazine and made this recipe too! The picture they have of it is just gorgeous. I also put cool whip on top and drizzled it with a chocolate syrup for effect. I used the semi-sweet baking squares that the recipe called for since I was afraid chocolate chips would mess it up. This was just delicious, very rich, but impossible to resist!
