Reviews forFabulous Fudge Cheesecake
"Oh my gosh, this was one of the most amazing cheesecakes I have ever made. For the crust I replaced the vanilla wafers and cocoa with chocolate animal crackers. My husband is not big on desserts but when I asked if I should give some to the neighbors he would only allow them a taste! Wonderful!"
"chocolate chips didn't melt and there was nothing in the directions about melting first. Oh well...still tasted great!"
