I made this for the first time yesterday for my little boys 4th birthday, not for the kids, but for the adults. It was a huge hit and I received lots of compliments. I'll definitely make it again.
Delicious eye candy
This dessert is excellent tasting and presents itself beautifully for a dinner party or special occasion. The next time that I make it, I'll substitute fresh cranberries cooked with sugar on the stove top instead of the jellied whole cranberries topping because we prefer that very fresh taste of cooked cranberries. Even though there is a good amount of coffee in the dessert, it is well balanced with the other components. I eliminated the chocolate shavings added to the edge of the cheesecake because it wasn't necessary as the chocolate crust was sufficient. Everyone loved it, young and old.
Great for special occasions!
Made this pie for a dinner party and it was a great hit. I would definitely make this again.
