I had a lot of problems with these. I could not find chocolate wafer cookies anywhere and so went with chocolate graham cracker crumbs mixed with a stick of melted butter. The crust wound up still being dry and crumbly. The cheesecake itself was OK but nothing all that special and also the rasberry flavoring on top didn't really come through much. Lastly, using a cookie cutter about 2 inches tall, I cut out the hearts but since the cheesecake sticks so much to everything, it was hard to remove each heart from the cutter and it required a lot of effort. The people I served this to thought it was 'just OK'. This may well be due to something I did wrong, but overall I was disappointed.
prissymae-heart shapes are very easy to cut without much waste, if your unsure use a template or heart shape cookie cutter. This recipe is outstanding and makes Valentines Day just a bit more special with your loved ones.
THIS SOUNDS WONDERFUL THE ONLY THING I WAS WONDERING IS HOW & WHAT WAS USED TO GET THE HEART DESIGNS.COOKIE CUTTERS OR SILICONE
This came out better than I thought it would. So creamy and amazingly yummy. It was my first attempt @ a cheesecake. I used chocolate graham crackers instead of cookies and had to use one stick of butter instead of a half to get it moistened. I served it with fresh raspberries on top. Loved it!! This is a keeper
I love this recipe. I did it with graham crackers instead of chocolate wafers and it was just as tasty. My husband loved it too!
Wow..I've never really made anything where you need to buy ingredients and prep and bake for over an hour, but this actually came out to be a masterpiece!! It took awhile as it was my first try, making it for my <3 for Valentine's Day. It came out wonderful and I added actual raspberries on top for a nice design. Definitely must try!
