My favorite is the Deep Dark Chocolate Cheesecake from I think it uses chocolate cookies as the crust and is thick and sturdy. I cover it in chocolate ganache and it is killer!

I just did this on Sunday. It's the "basket of strawberries" in my gallery. I had a 3 layer cake with the middle being chocolate cheesecake. I googled to find the sturdy NY cheesecake, just to find out it's the same recipe on the box of cream cheese. I just added a bunch of melted semi-sweet chocolate. It was GOOD! I baked it in my 10"x3"....and torted the cheesecake! That was a first, but I wanted the center layer....with no graham cracker crust for my cake. Good luck! Deb

Thanks ladies..fbgirl00, I looked up that cheesecake recipe. Looks good. The only big difference I notice in cheesecakes is the sugar. I only use 1 cup, so it won't be too sweet...but in comparasion, most look about the same. Obviously a cooked one will taste different than a no-bake, and one cooked in a water bath will taste different than one not. Besides that...the recipes look the same. that pic when you are finished!
