The best cheesecake I've ever made, and it's very popular with my friends and family! Making it again today for dinner with friends :DOne tip - melt the chocolate between steps 3 and 4, this will allow it to cool a bit so that it doesn't go grainy when it is mixed with the cream cheese mixture.-23 Aug 2014
A great cheesecake... with some modifications to suit the taste of my friends. First, I made this crust out of oreos - I think it fits better. I think the chocolate cheesecake would be overwhelming, so I mixed the chocolate with a little bit of the cheescake batter and swirled it throughout the plain batter. I did the same thing with some of the caramel, so when we cut into the cheesecake, you could see the chocolate and caramel ribbons without overpowering the cheesecake. I did put in the layer of caramel and pecans, and it was excellent! I always bake my cheesecakes in a springform pan fit inside one of those silicone cake pans, then place the cheesecake in a roasting pan and put water halfway up the side of the cheesecake pan. This has always worked well for me - I get the benefits of a waterbath without the leaking that foil can do. Before I boxed it up to take to work, I used some Smuckers hot fudge topping to cover the top of the cake in a very thin layer, then placed pecan halves around. Finally, I drizzled what was left of the caramel sauce on top of this cake. It looked beatuiful! I am known for my cheesecakes, and my coworkers were quite impressed.

This cheesecake was awesome with one simple change. Instead of melting the chocolate chips and adding to the batter, I added 1 cup of mini semi-sweet morsels to the batter. This made it a little less chocolatey and even prettier. After baking the cheesecake I also drizzled some caramel ice cream topping over the top and then sprinkled a few more mini chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Looked professionally made!!-12 May 2006
