Red Velvet Cheese Cake

Red Velvet Cheese Cake created by Miss Fannie

This is a recipe posted by my sister on Facebook. I am not sure where the original recipe comes from, but this is my mom's favorite cheesecake ever! If you love both red velvet cake and cheesecake, this recipe is for you. A red velvet filling is spiked with cocoa, topped with creamy cheesecake layer, and baked in a dark chocolate crust-making a wickedly-delicious combination.

    This was my first attempt at baking a cheese cake. The directions were easy to follow. I was pleasantly surprised at how light this cake was. I really was expecting it to be heavy. It tasted delicious, and was so pretty.
