"Delicious recipe! I will definitely make this again!"
"@ coloradopeak: I also live in Colorado, here are some thing that work for me. I use chocolate gramcrakers from King Soopers (cheaper and easier to find). I place my 9 inch springform pan in a 10 inch cake pan (instead of foil around the bottom of springform pan) then place in water bath. When the cheesecake timer goes off I turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven for a couple of hours, it seams to set better. I hope theese help."
"I never can find choc graham crackers so I asked a baker at whole foods and she told me to use choc. oreo cookies. Just put the in a food processor and add a couple tbls of melted butter and 3 tbls of sugar. Instead of baking I put it in the frig for 10 minutes to harden and the taste is perfect."
