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.
The COOK time on this is 50 minutes for the baked half, then chilled for 4 hours.
