Not enough cheesecake filling for my or my husband's taste, didn't really taste like cheesecake at all actually. I didn't have mini-chocolate chips, just regular, so maybe it was too chocolatey and that overpowered everything else? Anyway, nothing special really. Either way, I'd probably never make these again and would rather just put the extra effort into an authentic cheesecake that bakes in the oven and has 3 times the cream cheese.

I've made this recipe, and we love it. I've also tried these variations (separately, of course) in the cream cheese filling: a teaspoon of mint extract, a teaspoon of raspberry flavoring, and a teaspoon of orange extract. They all go well with the chocolate.

Very easy to make! However, my family thought it was too "cream cheesey" so next time I think I'll double the sugar on the filling!
