A cookie crumb crust, lusciouslayers of praline and cream cheese, and a chocolate glaze make this rich dessert a showstopper. It's worth the extra effort and freezes well, too. —Korrie Bastian, Clearfield, Utah

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2012

I've made this a number of times and it is always a hit. It really isn't very hard to make. Some reviewers used milk choc chips instead of the semi-sweet ones, but I like the darker ones best. One thing to remember is to put aluminum foil on the outside of the springform pan so the butter does not leak out of the bottom.
