i forgot to take a good picture of the cheesecake... oops. so this is a piece that was leftover, and a few days old, the original cheesecake looks much better then this!
so on valentines day i decided since chad and i were not celebrating until the weekend, i should bake some delicious desert. because i could not make up my mind on what i wanted to make... i decided to tweet a little poll "chocolate cheesecake or chocolate cake"
and though only two people responded, and they both tweeted different things. i went with the chocolate cheesecake. and we LOVED the cheesecake (hence why there is a letter L in the photo above)
so that means i need to share the recipe with you my friends.
chocolate lovers cheesecake
2 8oz pkg of cream cheese softened (i used one normal, one light)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 squares of bakers semi sweet chocolate
1 oreo pie crust (to be honest, i just bought mine..oops)
preheat oven to 325
melt bakers chocolate until liquid form. can do this in microwave or in a double boiler
beat cream cheeses, sugar, and vanilla until well blended
add chocolate and mix well.
add eggs and mix until blended
place mix into crust
bake for 40 minutes
refrigerate 4-6 hours before severing
i added raspberries around the edges to add a little sweet touch.
