MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2012

I made this cheesecake for the first time for my family at Christmas. Of course, I had to tweak it slightly. I used less chocolate and added caramel!! OMG!! Everyone loved the new version. I'm so glad this recipe is here for me!! I love this site!!!

I just took this out of the oven, after the 75 minutes and the top was browned. I think the cooking time listed is too long.
