MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2014

People know me for my cheesecake and this is my go-to recipe. Sometimes I make it "healthy" and sometimes I use regular ingredients. It's great either way, depending on how many calories you want to expend at a time. :)

i know it's a light receipt, but I doubled the chocolate chips to 1 C - 3/4 in the batter and 1/4 on the top.

I do not use the lighter cream cheese, but use all the real stuff and it comes out great. My daughters favorite dessert.
