How to Soften the Cream Cheese

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and Tasty I made this recipe using a premade Oreo crust and it way overfilled it. A little bit flowed out and cooked kind of crispy but besides that and the overhang it was delivious. It still turned out well and tastes great with no additional preparation. Forgot to buy fruit or whipped topping but I think some Cool Whip on a thin slice would go great. It's a bit tart and decadent but perfectly fine as long as you don't overdo it. I could definitely see myself making this again. If you're looking to use a premade crust, maybe adjust the ingredients accordingly and use less. Perhaps try adjusting the recipe for two packages of cream cheese instead of three.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Okay, so I made this for Easter... Okay, so I made this for Easter... it was YUMMY... BUT, if anyone is planning to make it, be warned, it is RICH! I mean, one piece is almost too much to eat, it's that rich. But it was a great hit at the family dinner and I got wonderful comments. I chose to not put fruit on top, instead opting to use whipped cream and shaved chocolate. It looked nice and tasted even better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for a family dinner and it was a smash hit. I made this recipe for a family dinner and it was a smash hit. Everyone raved about it, now my husband is begging me to make it for his work potluck. The only thing that I always have problems with and had it with this was the crust. It was really hard on the edges and softer in the center. Not sure why, but it didn't steal away from the over-all enjoyment of the desert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've always been a little apprehensive about making a cheesecake. I've always been a little apprehensive about making a cheesecake. This was actually a very easy recipe to make. One thing to remember though is that this is a multiple step process. It requires you to melt down the chocolate, slice fruit, etc. Also, strawberry Cool Whip may be unavailable. You can make your own by juicing strawberries. But, be sure to apply immediately after combining the strawberry juice with the Cool Whip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! AMAZING! This is so rich and decadent...a small piece goes a long way. I substituted light cream cheese, light cool whip and reduced fat Oreos and it didn't affect it at all. I used kiwis and blueberries as my fruit topping and they were delicious (the kiwis were surprisingly good)! I will DEFINITELY make this recipe again...but probably only once a year b/c it is way too tempting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I replaced the strawberry Cool Whip with French vanilla Cool Whip and I omitted the fruit. I replaced the strawberry Cool Whip with French vanilla Cool Whip and I omitted the fruit. It was outstanding! I think, however, the cheesecake would have been better if there was nothing on it at all. Even so, this is the best chocolate cheesecake I've ever made (and probably the best I've ever had). Not to mention this is by far one of the easiest cheesecakes I’ve ever made. All of my family & friends raved about it. I will definitely be making this again!
