Frozen Chocolate Cheesecake Tart

I first made this irresistible dessert for some dinner guests. They were overwhelmed by it's rich flavor and appearance. My husband commented that it was the best dessert he had ever eaten in his whole life. —Heather Bennett, Dunbar, West Virginia

    Excellent make ahead dessert! Just enough chocolate for me, not overpowering. Liked that it was done and ready for holiday serving. Would definitely make again..

    Fantastic! Of course, being the chocolate lover that I am, I substituted dark chocolate for the vanilla chips.

    I thought this was good, but would have liked a better texture. My husband didn't really like it. I bake alot, so I thought the texture should be a little creamier.

    I improvised with an Oreo Cookie Pie Crust. It's my 16 yr old sons favorite dessert - really easy and very good.
