I thought I might have died and gone to heaven when this fudge truffle cheesecake was placed in front of me. My sweet sister made this scrumptious delight when I visited her and every bite was soooo good! It has a dense rich texture full of decadent chocolate and a hint of coffee flavor that puts it over the top! Oh and I can’t forget the chocolate crumb crust that brings the chocolate flavor up a notch.

It was so smooth, rich and divine that I just had to share the recipe. Treat yourself, you won’t regret it!

      If you love chocolate and cheesecake this tastes like you have died and gone to heaven! I keep trying to convince myself that since it has dark chocolate in it is good for me – lol (any excuse will do just to have a piece!) Hope you enjoy it if you get a chance to make it.
