"I have made these several times. I have made half a recipe which work just as well. They have just enough chocolate flavor. The recipe is quick and easy. Don't overbake or the cheesecakes will be dry. If you have left over cookie crumbs you can use that with a little melted butter/margarine instead of the cookie. Will keep this recipe to make when I have a chocolate craving."

"While this looks like a great recipe, why can't the sugar grams be listed. It's important for diabetics to have this information"

"These are so yummy! Very pleasantly suprised by the richness and chocolatey flavor. I went the easy route and just bought fat-free whipped cream for the topping, and it worked perfectly. Everyone at the party raved about these. Can't wait to make again!"
