    Tall cheesecake -- very New York. Which is a good thing.

    Hi Dond, Thanks for the comment and yes it fits amazingly enough. I always use 40 oz for my cheesecakes. They make a tall cheesecake but oh soooo good!

    Very nice recipe. The chocolate-macadamia combination works well, I think. Will definitely be giving this variation a try. Thanks for posting.

    One question: 40 ounces of cream cheese is a huge amount -- I've never used more than 24 ounces in one cheesecake. Added to the 8 ounces of sour cream and 8 ounces of chocolate, that brings the filling to 40 ounces, not counting the eggs, sugar, and flour. Does all this really fit into one springform pan?

    If so, I can't wait to try this out. We'll be eating cheesecake for two weeks.

    I totally agree with zena... too bad they haven't invented a pill that makes cheesecake calorie-free!

    Thanks it really is good! Like I said the ganache is just one of those things you make and pour on. I dont really have a recipe for it.
