I made these and they came out beautifully but I have to leave them in the refrigerator until I was ready to serve them because they became soft with the heat. I would try making them again and see if the results would be different. Thanks for the recipe it was great.

It was easy to make and made an excellent desert that I took to a friends house for dinner. We all thought it was some of the better cheesecake we had in awhile!

Made this cheescake for the first time and took it to some friends, garnished with chocolate covered strawberries. Rave reviews, everyone loved it, not a crumb left. Next time I might substitute the chocolate with bittersweet and have a rasberry sauce with whipping cream for a garnish. It would make a beautiful presentation.

Okay, I admit I wasn't going to make brownies for a party we were giving because everyone brings them. I kept being drawn to these and I caved. Needless to say, VBB has given me another hit. These brownies were sinfully moist and definitely decedent. Everyone wanted the recipe and I told them to go you guys. I'm hoping they followed my advice.

Totally awesome cheesecake!!! This is by far one of the best cheesecakes I have had in a long time. If you love cheesecake and chocolate then this is the recipe for you!!!

I don't usually like cheesecake, and I don't usually like chocolate - but this was wonderful! It was easy, it looks nice, and I made it the day before without any problems! When I was cutting the squares, I found it much easier to use a very sharp knife warmed under water. If you're a lover of dark chocolate, this would probably taste wonderful substituted for the semisweet. Two thumbs way way up!
