"This is an unusual cheesecake that is absolutely wonderful. If you're going all out, track down real gianduja chocolate and mascarpone cheese. If that seems too expensive, then use semi-sweet chocolate and a good cream cheese, but don't forget the hazelnut liqueur! It's delicious and decadent. Serve in small pieces."

gianduja chocolate, chopped

unsweetened chocolate, chopped
In my quest to find an atypical chocolate cheesecake, this was perfect! I made it exactly as stated, and made it again using another high quality bittersweet chocolate rather than Gianduj. The phyllo is a wonderful change. Knocked everyone's socks off.
the batter tasted really good, but it was just ok once it cooled down.
maybe because i used a heart shaped springform pan, i wished i didnt have phyllo on the side.
I tried this recipe scaled down to 8 servings and the results were amazing. Note that instead of a phyllo dough I made it with Graham crakers crust... Amazing! Also gets better with age! Thanks again I will be making it again!
Loved the taste! I didn't like the Phyllo dough crust. It was hard to work with and cut and I don't think it added that much to the dessert. I would make this with a chocolate cookie crust if I was going to do it again.
This was FANTASTIC! I love Gianduja, even though I can't pronounce it very well. :)
I made this for my wife for Valentine's Day, and she loved it. But, she doesn't like the alcohol taste, so I substituted 2 tablespoons of Starbucks hazelnut syrup. Worked great!
