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 5 out of 5 by from This was awesome! This was awesome! Mine turned out just like the picture. I do recommend watching the "Cheesecake 101" video if this is your first cheesecake, and keeping in mind the amount of total cooling time involved. This was my first cheesecake, and it turned out great. The top cracked a little, but of course the cool whip covered it and nobody knew - mine looked just like the picture! For one of the 3 cream cheese packages, I did substitute a "light" package, but you couldn't tell. I will definitely make this again!

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!

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 I was disappointed that people ate such teeny pieces. I was disappointed that people ate such teeny pieces. They said it was "so rich." I thought it was scrumpdelicious! It took me three christmas parties to get it all gone. I just didn't want to eat it all myself! I would make it again for a party occasion. It was soooooooooooooo easy. I used bittersweet chocolate though, which is supposedly richer/sweeter than semi-sweet. Will use semi-sweet next time.

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!
