Rich, decadent and deliciously fudgy, this top-rated cheesecake boast three layers of chocolate goodness: a chocolate-cookie crust, bittersweet-chocolate filling and semisweet-chocolate glaze. If you're used to relying on store-bought pie or cookie crusts to save time in the kitchen, try making this recipe at home. It comes together with just five ingredients and can be made entirely in the food processor. These peppermint-topped beauties need to chill overnight before you enjoy them, so plan ahead if preparing the bars for a party — or Santa.
