"When I have time, I enjoy making cheesecakes," says Benjamin Clark of Warsaw, New York. "In fact, I’ve come up with a couple of my own recipes, and one of them won second prize at a local bake-off contest. I like this fail-proof dessert because it’s so easy to prepare and has just the right mix of ingredients to make it a “special pleasure” for any palate!"

"In the process of making this cheescake. I did find the triple chicolate cookie dough. Nestle roll house makes it in the 1 lb squares. However there is no way for 9 squares to cover bottom of pan. I am using more hope it turns out...."

"I could not find the triple chocolate cookie dough so I used chocolate chip cookie dough. I also used regular toffee bits instead of the milk chocolate toffee bits. The cheesecake was wonderful! I made this for a birthday party and everyone loved it. It was also handy to bake up in a 13x9" pan for travel and amount of servings."

"I wonder what Benjamin Clark uses instead of the triple chocolate cookie dough. I have always made it with that dough which they don't make any more. Can someone e-mail him? It was delicious every time! (a real crowd pleaser.)"

"I had to bake this cheesecake for 65 minutes. I also couldn't taste the toffee. I used mini brownie bites refrigerated dough because I couldn't find the cookie dough called for. But this is a delicious cheesecake."

"Very good chocolate cheesecake recipe. I substituted the triple chocolate cookie dough with chocolate chip cookie dough and the milk chocolate toffee bits with plain toffee bits."
