    The best cheesecake I've ever made, and it's very popular with my friends and family! Making it again today for dinner with friends :D One tip - melt the chocolate between steps 3 and 4, this will allow it to cool a bit so that it doesn't go grainy when it is mixed with the cream cheese mixture. - 23 Aug 2014
