Amazing!!, Member jmedders

I'm usually not a fan of chocolate cheesecake, but this was some of the best I've ever had - hands down the best I've ever made. I used a bag of milk chocolate chips (11 oz) because I didn't have semi-sweet chocolate. It's very rich and a small piece is plenty. I'm not sure if it was my oven or the recipe, but it could have benefited from another 5 minutes of baking time. It's a little gooey in the center.
