I made this into mini (single-serving) cheesecakes for my niece's graduation party and to share with my fellow classmates in culinary school, and got rave reviews. The process is a bit time consuming, but well worth it!
*I used the double boiler method, instead of the microwave, to melt the chocolate chips. Also, I wrapped foil around the outside of the pan & placed it in a hot water bath to bake (to reduce cracking & help it bake evenly).
