Show off your culinary skills by making this superb dessert. Don’t set yourself worrying though, because this is quite easy to make. The secret behind this cheesecake is the use of good quality dark chocolate, and melting the chocolate for the right span of time only. Even a slight variation in the melting time will cause the chocolate to get burnt and spoil the texture of the mixture. You can add to the specialty of this cheesecake by using chocolate biscuits with a touch of rum as a base.

Chocolate Cheesecake is crunchy because of the base made of biscuits and melted butter and the filling is creamy and rich because of cream and chocolate...the garnishes make the cake even more attractive...
