Notes

I've had this book for over 20 yrs by Better Homes and Gardens, simply titled Chocolate. This is a no-bake cheesecake but you can't tell other than the fact that it's not as dense as regular cheesecake. Its a very silky creamy incredibly chocolate dessert.

Have you ever tried it without the cocoa and melted chocolate to get a regular cheesecake?
