This is one IMPRESSIVE dessert that is immensely delicious. If you love cheesecake and are "mad" about chocolate, this is a little treasure you will use often. It is a dense filling, so please don't overbeat. You do not want too much air incorporated in the filling. Just beat until blended, no more.I can't tell you how many times I've made this, and if there are any leftovers, it freezes divinely. From Denny Darling.

    Note: I make this cheesecake often, and it always gets rave reviews. I've frozen the leftovers (if there are any) to treat myself to a great frozen dessert. L.
