    Great recipe. Looks beautiful with raspberries on top. Relatively simple to make. I just used regular sugar, 1 cup plus 1/2 cup.

    My whole family loved this cheesecake. It is a bit softer than regular cheesecake, but it was easy to put together and tasted great. This is a nice lower sugar cheesecake, which my diabetic dad really appreciated. No one else noticed it was lower sugar. It was a yummy Valentine's Day treat!

    I love Cheesecake and Chocolate. I made this for Valentines Day and I'm sad to say that after 1 piece this went in the trash! I think the combination of artifical sweetner and chocolate was too much. The only thing I tasted was the splenda.

    the recipe sounds good, but just out of curiosity, why are we using both sugar and sugar substitute?
