I doubled this recipe and made it into more of a brownie-style recipe than a cheesecake, and it got rave reviews! I make a traditional fudge sauce to go over it (composed of marshmellows, evaporated milk, sugar, and milk chocolate chips). It's a rather plain looking dessert, so you may want to add some type of garnish, but the taste is so rich and luxurious that you don't want to pass this one up!
