Cheesecake is probably the most requested dessert in restaurants. Almost everyone loves cheesecake. Almost everyone loves chocolate as well. I decided to marry the two loves in a decadent, multifaceted chocolate cheesecake, incorporating as much chocolate as I thought one could survive in one sitting! It makes a fabulous dessert. Enjoy!
