Anyone who is a lover of chocolate and cheesecake will love this recipe. This recipe has been a request for many an event and I've been asked for the recipe on numerous occasions. I've been making it for about 20ish years. It's rich and creamy and super delish. Though it's not a short recipe to put together, I like that you can make it a couple or so days ahead of an event making it ready for when you need it. Note that I have not added the refrigerator time to the total amount of prep time. I usually decorate the top with chocolate leaves (and sometimes with a mix of gold leaves) and wrap a gold ribbon around it which makes for a beautiful presentation, especially for the holidays.
