"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."
