Frosted Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Recipe

Publisher Photo
“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

MY REVIEW

It was delicious, and easy too!! I used a store-bought Oreo crust (which tasted great, but was too small to hold the filling), as I could not find plain chocolate wafer crumbs. Does it work just as well to grind up whole Oreo cookies?

I tried this several years ago and have made it COUNTLESS times since. It is ALWAYS a hit and is appropriate for any dinner, either fancy or plain. I LOVE this recipe and have gotten so many recipe requests. I also serve it when I have company :)

My aunt made this last year at Thanksgiving and shared the recipe with me. I make it every time we have a celebration. It's a little tedious, but it's well worth it.

This was my very first Cheesecake that I made ever! Well it was a huge hit! It didn't last long and it was so pretty! I used a store bought Oreo crust instead of what the recipe called for which made it extra yummy! Loved it!!!! :) Will be making this again at Thanksgiving!
