Reviews for Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake
"One of our favorite no bake cheesecakes. I do add up to a tablespoon of vanilla or 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond flavoring to the "white" layer because we initially found it too bland. Have also tried it with blueberries and enjoyed it that way as well. 1 packet of gelatin equals 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 teaspoons (aprox 7 g)."
"The instructions are confusing. It tells you to mix cream cheese and set aside and then to mix more cream cheese with sugar and stir in gelatin and transfer half of thisto another bowl. How many bowls of cream cheese do we need and how much is in the small bowl and how much is in the large bowl...?"
"SO pretty and SO delicious! Not too sweet. Made this for Easter dessert. My family loved it!"
"I think the crust should have been baked in order to hold its shape, and I totally agree with the "bland" rating. It is much more attractive than it is good tasting."
"It's attractive and sounds good. But, it was a bit tedious to make, and the flavor is rather disappointingly bland. chocolate layer not chocolately enough, and lacks a vibrant raspberry flavor."
"How many tsp is 1 envelope unflavoured gelatin as I would like to try this recipe. The gelatin sold here in Asia are packed differently / sizes. Thanks."
"so good!!! No need to change a thing... will make it again for years to come.. Thanks!!!"
"My family absolutely loves this recipe and it's a keeper, for sure. It's one that will be made for special occasions in our home for many years to come."
"This is the best cheesecake I have ever had!!!"
