Cool Chocolate Amaretto Turtle Cheesecake

I plan on adapting some existing recipes to my favorite concoction.

A local restaurant I'm fond of, wants me to try my hand at producing this cheesecake in hopes to save their chef some time. I'm honored but concerned that my big mouth has once again gotten myself into trouble. Any ideas or suggestions(was that redundant?)

Yea lulu, it's very good but I just learned how to make a pretty mean caramel so I'm anxious to introduce it to my cakes. Jenn, the cocoa so much thickened the batter that I needed to add moisture so I used my leftover coffee. It did the trick and added that lil extra flavor.

rdcast, you realize every time you talk about cheesecakes, you make my stomach growl. That's it. I've had enough. Send me a half dozen and we'll call it even.

PS - the caramel sounds great!!
