Chocolate Coffee Buttercream Icing
I made the recipe as stated above but used about 14 oz of powdered sugar. It was sooo ridiculously sweet. I added an additional half cup of cocoa powder just to cut the sickly sweetness and overwhelming flavor of powdered sugar.

Heavenly Chipped Chocolate and Hazelnut Cheesecake
This cheesecake is average. First, the chocolate topping completely overwhelms the cheesecake itself. Second, the cheesecake part is really kind of meh, it's on the softer side and I don't really feel that putting in "chipped chocolate" really adds to it. In the end it just feels like a big chocolate, sugary mess in your mouth w/ a bit of cheesecake flavor towards the end. The hazelnut flavor gets lost in the chocolate as well. I won't make it again.

Fudge Pie
Totally disappointing. If you're looking for a dense fudgey pie this is Absolutely Not it. The chocolate flavor isn't very strong, the butter flavor is extreme. It comes out with a light fluffy texture that isn't unpleasant, but it's not what I'm looking for in a fudge pie.
