    Admittedly this seems like a lot of work (and it kinda was), but I really enjoyed this cheesecake and that over a hot weekend, I didn't have to turn on my oven to make it! A few notes: 1) for those that can find chocolate wafers, good for you; I couldn't so I just used a premade Oreo crust; 2) I also forgot the unflavored gelatin, so I did the following instead: sub cornstarch for gelatin in a bowl with 1% milk, heated for 30 seconds in micro; then ensured encorporated and stirred in 1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips until melted; set aside to cool. 3) I cut down the amount of powdered sugar to about 3/4-1 cup (I tasted until I liked the flavor); using the called for amount will likely make the cheesecake too sweet. 4) after whipping the 1/4 cup (really C.L., I really had to whip 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream?), I added the chocolate mix from the processor to my stand mixer and whipped for another few minutes. Results = very good and would make again with my tweaks; Enjoy!

    This was delicious and the texture smooth and amazing. I could not find the wafer cookies so I used chocolate Graham crackers. I prefer milk chocolate so I used 1ounce milk chocolate.....and I will confess I had ready whip :) So I used a cup of it instead of whipping my own..... My husband said Don't lose that recipe!
