Chill several hours or overnight Author's Notes: You may have seen this on the cover of a recent magazine when you were standing in the grocery line. It makes a very rich, truly decadent chocolate cheesecake. A chocolate wafer is a crisp chocolate cookie about three inches in diameter and an eigth of an inch thick. If you can't find them, you can substitute any kind of dry crunchy chocolate-flavored cookie. You can make the crust and filling in a food processor if you have one. It makes it a lot easier. Difficulty : moderate. Precision : measure carefully. Recipe By : Jonathan Hue LMSC-Mechanisms & Servo Systems, Sunnyvale, CA
