Chocolate Cheesecake, a simple yet elegant offering

Chocolate Cheesecake, after those two words, not a lot is needed to get one's attention! This easy to make dessert looks quite impressive and your guests will love it. Chocolate Cheesecake, it is the go-to dessert for the chocolate lovers in your family...

While I prefer whole grain, naturally sweetened baked goods, every now and again, my dear husband requires a dessert that is a bit more indulgent. This Chocolate Cheesecake is just such a dessert. It is rich, chocolatey, and cheesecake, all his favorite flavors in one spectacular dessert! And let's be honest, a dessert this delicious doesn't need a lengthy introduction to convince you to make one, so let's just cut to the chase! You must make this!

While you do not need to serve this Chocolate Cheesecake with anything, fresh berries in the springtime offer a nice finish. For all other times, whipped cream and candied walnuts or pecans are quite festive...

  • cracker or bread crumbs

You will also need the following:

  • glass measuring cup or bowl
