Reviews for Fudge Truffle Cheesecake
"Great recipe! The only thing I did different was the crust. I used crushed oreos and melted butter. I've made this with great success for years"
"We have made this cheesecake for years, and love it! It is a favorite with us :)"
"The cake is awesome.. thanks for the other comments it helps a lot. I put in total 390g Philadelphia cheese more than in the recipe stays. I add brown sugar in the crust cause I didnt have confectioners sugar. I made it at The Advent Window in Germany and never have any leftovers, germans said that it was "high confectionery" ... the best chocolate cheesecake ever ate!!! mmmh"
"i really liked this cheesecake but it was very rich so if you dont like chocolate dont make it :)"

"Well I made this one for the first time last weekend and it was awesome...Then I made it again last night for work and did not pay attention to what type of chips I grabbed which were Milk Choc. Chips and I sure hope this turns out good or I will be the laughing stock at work... And to beat that it will be our first Quarterly Recipe Swap...Will let you know how it goes.... Hee! Hee!Anyone tried it this way yet with the Milk Choc. Chips..."
"I served this cheesecake along with 2 others at a holiday party. This one went first and my guests were amazed. First, they asked where I bought this cheesecake, then when they found out I make it they all wanted the recipe. Defiantly one I'll make again for my holiday party next year!"
