Chocolate and Toffee Cheesecake

Chocolate and Toffee Cheesecake

This recipe isn’t particularly time-consuming, but requires some forethought and preparation. I would take note of the bake time, which is about an hour and forty five minutes. Prepare it the day before so that the dish has time to set in the refrigerator overnight.
