Killer Chocolate Cheesecake - Free Clipart
My husband loves to cook and bake things. We cook different things and this works out great because cooking isn’t exactly a favorite activity of mine. He comes up with some tasty dishes and is actually a better cook than I am, in my opinion. I wanted to share this cheesecake recipe for those of you who have a sweet tooth. It is fantastic and loaded with calories I’m sure because it is quite rich, but makes a nice dessert to take somewhere, if you have a function to attend. I have to admit it is sinfully yummy.

1 chocolate graham cracker crust (if you can’t find one, you can buy a package of Oreo cookies and use those (icing removed of course)

4 packages (8 oz each) Philadelphia cream cheese softened, divided
1 cup of sugar, divided
