A cheesecake that is deep, dark and decadent earns the right to be called "3D." This version always looks its chocolate best, because the ganache coating blankets any cracks you may experience, as cheesecakes sometimes like to show. —Vanassa Hicks, Flint, Michigan

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake

I'm originally from Paraguay, and dulce de leche reminds me of where I came from. If you can't find it at your grocery store, try caramel ice cream topping instead. It tastes different, but this decadent dessert will still be amazing. —Sonia Lipham, Ranburne, Alabama

“Heavenly” is a good description for this luscious dessert, conveniently made a day ahead. When I don’t have a candy bar on hand, I melt ¾ cup of chocolate chips to use in the frosting. Whipped cream can be used in place of the whipped topping.—Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah
