TWD-Low and Luscious Chocolate Cheesecake

This week's pick for Tuesdays with Dorie is Low and Luscious Chocolate Cheesecake. It was chosen by Margaret, who is one of my Twitter buddies and you will be able to find the recipe on her blog, Tea and Scones, tomorrow.
Since it is the Christmas holiday, we were given a little leeway about posting this recipe; we were given the opportunity to post it anytime between last Tuesday and tomorrow.

We got back from DisneyWorld Saturday night. We had a blast! So much fun. We were really worn out though.

In a couple of hours, my husband and I are flying to DC for a quick 24 hour trip because one of my good friends is getting married up there.

Luckily, my older sister lives in DC, so we have someone to pick us up and someone to stay with. I am super excited because I get to see my new nephew that was born in September.
Anyway, I am trying to unpack and then pack again, do laundry and everything else, so I am posting this right now, while I have a few moments.

I made 1/3 of the recipe and decided to make little mini cheesecakes. The great thing about this recipe is that it doesn't require a waterbath and it is fairly simple, as far as cheesecake recipes are concerned. I used semi-sweet chocolate, but only had a tiny bit, so the chocolate flavor was really muted. The texture was good. Next time I would definitely use the full amount of chocolate (should have checked the pantry before I started making the recipe!)
I also think a chocolate crust would be great on this cheesecake.

Go check out the TWD Blogroll to see everyone else's cheesecake and have a great day!
