“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

"Several years ago I decided cheesecake was going to be my holiday dish. It was pretty disastrous for a while, and after quite a few bad recipes I was about to give up and try a new signature food. Then I found this recipe! Now, not only am I always asked to bring a cheesecake, my husband always requests this one."

"I made this back in 2007 and rated it "excellent!" highest rating. I like cheesecakes that have a topping since it covers any cracks that might happen!"

"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?"

"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!"

"Everybody loved this cheesecake. However, the crust it too hard/crispy. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I followed the exact recipe."

"I've made several different cheesecakes, and this is one of my very favorites. I love the creaminess of it, and I love the lighter, mousse-like frosting in contrast with the denser cheesecake. This is a cheesecake recipe I've made several times, and people always love it. I highly recommend this recipe."
