I love cheesecake and my husband loves chocolate, so this is a favorite dessert of ours. The rhubarb adds a tartness that complements the sweet flavors so well. —Carol Witczak, Tinley Park, Illinois

Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"This is a great recipe. Never have I tried/used/or baked with rhubarb before but I was very pleased with the outcome. It was so pretty and the taste is very velvety and super tasty. Will definitely make again."

"I used raspberries instead of rhubarb for the topping, and the cheesecake was excellent. I would definitely make it again!"

"This is absolutely wonderful! The juxtaposition of tart rhubarb and the cheesecake is unexpected and this has a wonderful texture. I will definitely be making this a lot - it goes into my "keeper" file!"

"Delicious! Only the 3rd baked cheesecake I've made, but it was so nice to have one actually turn out. I used a 10 inch springform pan and I'm glad because it baked so evenly and gave more servings. I found after a few days in the fridge, the leftovers tasted even better because the flavours had a chance to properly meld together. Also I've never cooked rhubarb before and this totally showed me how good it is. Awesome!"
