"This is my husband's new favorite dessert. While there are many steps, it is not difficult to make and tastes amazing. The coffee flavor is not overwhelming, but complements the chocolate perfectly. Delicious!"
"I am so mad at myself for making this, omg my 11 year old fell in love with this, my realtor told me to start a new bakery business - this is the bomb, absolutely delicious and fattening, I will go on a diet tomorrow - the whole family loves this - best cheesecake we have ever had. Thank you so much for this recipe."
