Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Teeccino Cheesecake

When Lys Gabrielle Poet brought this delicious cheesecake to our office, everyone went nuts. How could it be so simple to make and yet taste and look like it took hours to prepare?
Lys brought us two crusts one dark cookie crust and one graham cracker crust. Both were fabulous and she bought them rather than made them. So easy you don't even have to make a crust.
OK, we know this isn't exactly on the no-fat diet plan, but it is on the occasional indulgence plan!
