My mother-in-law loved chocolate malts—and cheesecakes, too. Can you guess who passed this recipe on to me? Sometimes, I substitute pretzel crumbs for the graham cracker crumbs. They make a surprisingly good crust!

"SO DELICIOUS! I baked this for Easter. It was the first time I've ever tried to make cheesecake. It turned out beautifully - no cracking or bubbling. This cheesecake received rave reviews for the whole clan & I was asked by 4 people for the recipe. This recipe made me look like a "top chef"!"
