I made these for my boyfriend for Valentines and they were a huge hit. It was a very simple cheesecake to make and incredibly delicious. The shortbread cookie base made for a creative touch and really added to the creamy flavour. Also, mine came out looking exactly like the photo. Highly recommend this recipe!

I have made this dish for a few years now. It is by far the most requested dessert I make. The only thing I change is the chocolate. Instead of the regular chocolate I use the white chocolate chips instead. It is amazing!
