    I made this for a dinner party for my husband's December birthday. Everyone thought is was delicious -- a nice twist on the classic cheesecake. This is the first time I've made a cheesecake, and it came out perfectly.

    I have been making this Holiday Treat EVERY year!! It's easy to make with kids, everyone gobbles it down, rich as it is, and you can even substitute low fat sour cream and low fat cream cheese! It's TDO!!!

    This was an excellent cheesecake! I made it for Christmas dinner this year and everyone raved. I chose not to put the crushed candies on the cheesecake - would get funky with the leftovers. So I put a dallop of freshly whipped cream on top of each slice as I served it and sprinkled some candies on that. Very good and easy to make!

    I'm sorry to say, but this was a pretty bad cheeseacake. I baked it for well over an hour, the top cracked but it still didnt seem done. Maybe I was supposed to bake in a waterbath, but the instructions did not say to. I also felt like this was not sweet enough. If I were to make a cheesecake similar to this I would top it with ganache.then the peppermnt candies

    I agree with pastrylou. My cheesecake cracked and was overdone. The flavor was pretty bad also. If you followed this recipe, I really don't understand how you could like it... It also seemed like there were definitely NOT enough Oreos for the crust.

    I made this recipe twice this holiday season and folks raved. The first time I followed the recipe and the second time I used low fat versions of the cookies and cream cheese and fat free sour cream. The low fat version was just as good as the first version.

    I have made this for the past 3 years for Christmas Parties and my boss who has studied at the Cordon Bleu in Paris raves about this cheesecake! It has turned out great everytime I make it. I make sure the creamcheese and eggs are at room temperature too!
