Notes

I am never sure whether to categorize this as an appetizer or a dessert, but I think it's a bit of both. :) This is AWESOME. Tastes just like chocolate chip cheesecake, and I always serve it with chocolate graham cracker sticks. One of my husband's friends is always requesting that I make this! I omit the pecans when I make it.
