Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

On Saturday I made my first cheese cake ever! After a thorough internet search I finally found a recipe which I was confident I could make. I found the recipe on my favourite recipe website taste.com.au



Many dirty dishes later I successfully made each layer, I didn't have over night to refrigerate the cheesecake however found the freezer did a good job setting the cheese cake layers.

8 hours later after grating chocolate and placing chopped strawberries on top of the cheesecake I had a slice, I was pleasantly surprised with the cheesecake, however must admit it was difficult to finish given how rich it was.

I am looking forward to making another amazing cheesecake which is featured on taste.com.au, keep your eyes peeled as I will be sure to post!
