I have had other chocolate chip cheesecakes and this is by far the best, as well as the easiest to prepare! I love the chocolate biscuit base and it looks gorgeous when speckled with miniature chocolate chips.

I baked this for a pre-prom dinner for my son, his date, and another couple. I wanted it to be perfect - and it was awesome! I bought two pre-made chocolate crumb pie shells to use as the crust. I buttered the sides and the bottom of the springform pan before pressing the crumbs/butter mixture in the pan. I used two premade crusts in order to have my crust go up the sides of the cheesecake. All my cheesecake ingredients were at room temp. I researched (on this site) how to bake it in a water bath...check the article by Jennifer Anderson. I so hoped it would not have a crack when it was baked, but there was one (just one) and so I used a hot,wet knife to rub on top until the crack was gone. I kept the cake wrapped in the fridge for two days. On the day of the prom, I took it out of the springform pan, and prior to serving it, I sprinkled oreo crumbs on top and placed oreos (cut in half) around the edges. I cannot tell you how wonderful this looked and tasted. It's not easy to totally wow teenagers, but this did the trick. Thank you, Kristy!-24 Apr 2006
The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is the base ingredients as written are not enough to cover the pan. I had to double the amount to get a decent base. That aside this is an excellent cheesecake that went down very well on Christmas Day. Thanks.-28 Dec 2006
This was fabulous! I did add more cookie crumbs for the base, as well as butter to accommodate. I also melted some semi-sweet chocolate and marbled the top. My guests LOVED it! I will definitely be making this again.-09 Sep 2007
