Double Layer Hugs N Kisses Chocolate Cheesecake

I know that this is a long name for any kind of cheesecake, but we haven't really come up with the perfect name yet. Any suggestions? Leave me a comment I'd appreciate it. I came up with this recipe the other day with my son who had a birthday and always wants cheesecake instead of birthday cake and I just bought some new springform pans that I was wanting to use. We have tried a variety of no bake type of cheesecake from classic cherry cheesecake to my other favorite Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake, but I have never made a baked style cheesecake. So I convinced my son that he wanted to try one for his birthday this year.

We call it a double layer because it is baked cheesecake on bottom and no bake on top, fun right? It was delicious and even better the second day.
