“This is a wonderful no-bake cheese cake that always gets raves! A lovely chocolate and white marble-topped cheesecake with a layer of praline. I decorate the top of it with pecans and some of the praline mixture. My sister runs a catering business and she liked this so much it is now one of her best sellers.”
