   Author’s Notes:
   You may have seen this on the cover of a recent
   magazine when you were standing in the grocery line.
   It makes a very rich, truly decadent chocolate
   cheesecake. A chocolate wafer is a crisp chocolate
   cookie about three inches
   in diameter and an eigth of an inch thick. If you
   can't find them, you can substitute any kind of dry
   crunchy chocolate-flavored cookie. You can make the
   crust and filling in a food processor if you have one.
   It makes it a lot
   easier.
   
   Difficulty    : moderate.
   Precision     : measure carefully.
