    I'm so thankful that I'm over the 'aversion' part of my pregnancy because I love chocolate again! This cheesecake looks fantastic. The perfect treat for a chocoholic. πŸ˜€

    What kind of “chocolate wafers” are you talking about? I can't think what that could be. Thanks! πŸ™‚

      Hi Denise – here is a link to an image of a box of chocolate wafers –

      It might help you to find them at the store. If you can't, I've substituted chocolate graham crackers or even chocolate teddy grahams with success.

    Can i use greek yogurt instead of cream cheese? i have a lot of it and i wanted to make a cheesecake with it!

      I’ve never made cheesecake with only Greek yogurt but you can certainly try. I might substitute only half of the cream cheese with the yogurt to see how it turns out.

    And… i did’t get the water-bath thing before baking! please explain!

      It is explained in the post…

      “The water bath prevents the cheesecake from getting deep cracks.”

      “Meanwhile, prepare about 2 quarts of boiling water on the stovetop or in a kettle.

      Wrap bottom of cooled springform pan tightly with foil and place pan into a larger, deep baking pan. Carefully pour boiling water into large pan until water reaches about halfway up the sides of springform pan to create a water bath.”

    I’ve messed this recipe up a couple of times, because the list of ingredients should say 2 (8oz) packages of cream cheese and it confuses me each time. So I end up using one package first and realize each time it should be two. This is my husband’s favorite recipe. Can you update it for when I use it next time? Thanks!

    The number of 8oz cream cheese isn’t showing up for me. Help!
