This is one of the MOST decadent desserts I make for my husband! It's so yummy! His three favorite desserts are Pecan Pie, Cheesecake and most anything with Dark Chocolate and this dessert has all three. It seems as though it would be difficult to bake but it really isn't but the results make it seem like it is! I do make my own pie crust but any frozen deep dish pie crust will do.

Loved the layering in this recipe. It looks so pretty... and tastes so good! I always love cheesecake. Pair it with chocolate and pecans... oh my! This is very decadent and a wonderfully special dessert.  The Test Kitchen
