Chocolate Surprise Turtle Cheesecake

This cheesecake has a surprise layer of chocolate on top of the crust when it is cut. Mmmm, so yummy. I was trying to mimic Johnny Carino's Turtle Cheesecake, but I didn't quite get it right. This still tastes AWESOME, in my opinion, though. I wouldn't bother looking at the nutition info... :) *Note:* Prep time does not include cheesecake cooling or chilling time. Updated 5/12/09 to add: The melted chocolate layer on top of the crust can become quite solid after refrigeration (...not how I envisioned it!), making it difficult to cut. Fudge ice cream topping might be better AND stay ooey-gooey when the cheesecake is cold. If you try this out, let me know what you did and how it works out!
