Cheesecake and Chocolate Pie

I made this for Mother’s Day..problem,  I waited until late afternoon to make it.   Needless to say, there were a few unhappy people until I reminded them of the Lemon Fizz Cake I made the day before.   Their smiles came back.  ;D   I’m sorry for the lack of pictures.   I cannot find the ones I took while fixing it.  Hmmmm,  I wonder what became of them?  I’ll post them when and if,  they are found.  In the mean time….enjoy this one!
