I accidentally grabbed the wrong type of chocolate so I ended up using bittersweet instead of unsweetened. I still used 4 squares but reduced the sugar in the crust to 1 cup and increased the vanilla to 1/2 Tablespoon. I also increased the vanilla in the cheesecake to 1/2 Tablespoon.

It turned out WONDERFUL. Everybody loved it!

The only thing I would probably do different next time is reducing the ingredients for the crust by half because it turned out really thick.

Thanks for sharing :)


Hi Melamel!! Thanks for your comment. Im happy that everybody loves the recipe, but remember, is not a crust, it is a brownie bottom cheesecake so its suppose to be thick.... Happy baking!! Take care... ;o)
