    I halved the ingredients which still makes a big cheesecake, to make it look extra special I melt a couple of chunks of white and dark chocolate chunks separately, blob these on the top and swirl it round with a skewer, it looks and tastes gorgeous!!! very easy to make and never lasts long - 17 Oct 2013
