Neapolitan Cheesecake

"Creamy and rich, this cheesecake is a show stopper. It has three beautiful layers of cheesecake - strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate. It tastes heavenly and the flavors blend well together. Topped with a chocolate glaze it is really an indulgence that will receive many compliments - before and definitely after eating it! The recipe was printed in Taste of Home magazine and submitted by Sherri Regalbuto."

"<p>Hello, My name is Monica and I am a 35 year old, happily married mom of 2. After working as a project manager for many years, I currently am a stay-at-home mom to our beautiful daughter Hannah who is 10 years old,&amp; our sweet son Liam who is 6. I love being home with them! I am a Navy wife of 19 years. It is an adventurous, fun, sometimes stressful life but we are proud to be a Navy family in service of our country. <br />Cooking is one of my passions. I could sit down and read recipes like I would a regular novel. I would say I am more of a recipe gatherer rather than a recipe orginator. I do tweak things a lot to suit my families taste, but other than that I rely on recipes for ideas and technique. I find most of my own recipes have been posted in some form or another here, but I look forward to having more to add in the future. <br />I am an avid baker and also love international foods. Being half Thai, I love Thai food and have gotten my family to learn to appreciate it as well.</p>"

    The recipe calls for 5 squares semisweet chocolate,but the directions only use 4. Can this be clarified? I would like to try this recipe but I'm not sure about the amount of chocolate.

    I added all of the chocolates into the mixture and added a drop of red food coloring to give it more color.
