Double Chocolate Cheesecake

Do you like chocolate as much as I do? Well I don’t know about you however, looking and finding a quick and easy Gluten Free dessert is not as easy as it is to just whip up any other dessert. If we were not gluten free we could just go pick one up at any bakery or Market, but that's not the case. Well because its not always easy to find a gluten free dessert, my goal is to post at least Fifty desserts this year. This is dessert number two; I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
