My kind of cheesecake

Even ice cream lovers need to broaden our horizons now and then. I'm not a huge cheesecake lover, that's my wife's job, but I will make an exception now and then. In this case, we were at the very well known Cheesecake Factory. Their selection is extensive. So many choices, but I decided to narrow my options just to the chocolate cheesecakes. Hmmm, ahhhh, found one, Chocolate Tuxedo Cream Cheesecake. It's a layer of chocolate mousse on top of a layer of vanilla Mascarpone (what ever that is) on top of a layer of chocolate cheesecake on top of a layer of fudge cake. Oh yeah, just think about that, sounds great doesnt it? Oh it was. The best part? it was probably the lightest cheesecake I ever had. It was great, I totally recommend it for anyone who isn't big into big heavy cheesecakes.

Update: forgot to look it up, so here it is: Mascarpone is a triple-cream cheese and it has very high fat content ...probably why I'm still very full 2 hours later (and I had already waited 2 hours before eating it)

Nutrition: Iunno, but it cant be good

i bought one of these fellas, whole. . . .. I thought it would be pretty good, but I didn't expect it to be the absolute best cheesecake i've ever eaten!!!!!!!!

This was intended for Christmas dessert, however, I alone have managed to whittle it down to one piece in a matter of 3 days!!

And, yes it is very "light", so your not left with that yukky over-full sensation halfway through the slice.--For my ass's sake, I almost wish it would.
