If you aren't a regular visitor here, this is how it works; we are a group of bloggers participating in a monthly project. Every month one of us picks a theme and each of us post a recipe based on that month’s theme. All the recipes will be featured on my Facebook wall.

December was The 12 Cakes of December
January was Dippin' Through January
February was Love and Food
March was Celebrating Green and Welcoming Spring
April is Chocolate.
Today it’s my turn. I made a Double Chocolate Cheesecake Pie. If it sounds like a dessert that’s having an identity crisis, it probably is.

The bottom features a dark chocolate crust and dark chocolate cheesecake. I used dark chocolate because it’s a little less sweet than the other options.

The topping is sweeter, it’s a whipped cookies-and-cream layer more reminiscent of a pie.

I then decorated, chilled completely, and served. My chocolate lovers were pleased.

    1. Yes, you can use a water bath for the cheesecake if you want. I didn't but most serious bakers do. Hope you do try it and everyone loves it as much as we did.
