Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Bars


Cheesecake 101

The Crust

A single layer will do in the pan.
Pack tightly & evenly for the best results.

The Blending

The manner in which a cheesecake filling is blended
determines whether or not cracks will be created.

Beating in too much air to the egg whites causes the filling to rise in the oven
& fall upon cooling which creates the crater.

So much depends upon when & how the eggs are incorporated.
Mix all of the ingredients well before adding them.
Combine the mixture just until they are blended.
