This recipe is amazing! This was my first time making a cheesecake and it turned out great! I did make one alteration, I used an oreo cookie crust instead of the animal crackers, we're a chocolate loving family. I just bought a pack of oreos and threw almost a row of them in the food processor to make 1 1/2 cups of oreo crumbs and kept the same amount of everything else for the crust. I also used special dark cocoa. Just delicious!! Thank you so much for this recipe! I look forward to making it again.
This recipe is definitely going in "my favorites". I took it to work and within 10 minutes the plate was empty, someone was scraping the knife and plate to get the last and I had requests to bring it in again "tomorrow." It is not one of those things you can throw together because of the length of time to bake, sit and cool but the wait was worth it.
This is one of the most decadent cheesecakes I’ve ever made! I pre-baked the crust for 15 min. It had a light delicate crunch and you could definitely taste the coffee. The cheesecake itself is like a giant chocolate truffle. I omitted the nuts from the filling as a personal preference because I like my cheesecakes to have a smooth creamy texture. My only other admission was the cornstarch. I bake a lot of cheesecakes and was very leary of the baking instructions. Not wanting to chance failure, I used my standard baking method for cheesecakes which includes baking in a water bath. I’ve never had one crack and this one was no exception. It turned out perfect!
This is really yummy! Definitely good for a sweet tooth or a chocolate lover. The slight coffe flavor is nice too, you can taste it, but it isnt overpowering. To make the marshmellow creme easier to spread, i microwaved it about 15 seconds and it was perfectly spreadable and not too sticky. Thanks for the recipe!
Got rave reviews at our family Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it. I didn't change a thing and it was great! Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
Very rich and very good! Followed as recipe stated.
This was one of the most delicious cheesecakes I've ever made. I followed the recipe exactly and it was a huge hit during Christmas. Thanks for much for posting this. I will be making it again soon.
First time ever making a cheesecake so I followed the instructions exactly. Turned out great. Very rich and very delicious. I was unsure about the coffee, but it is not overpowering. Takes a while with the cook and wait time,but the end result was worth it. I used chocolate animal crackers instead of plain ones. I will definitely make it again, but will probably leave the nuts out of the filling.
