I agree with the reviewers who state this is bland. I thought it was strange that the white layer doesn’t have either confectioners’ sugar or flavoring of any kind. I thought of adding both but, since I was making this for the first time, I followed the directions exactly. I should have followed my instincts. Four ounces of melted chocolate didn’t seem like enough for the dark layer but, again, I followed the recipe. This isn’t a cheesecake. It’s more like a cream cake. It’s a beautiful dessert, however, so I plan to make it again, when I’ll add raspberry extract or liqueur to the white layer and an additional four ounces of chocolate to the darker layer.
I agree with one thing, the directions were a bit confusing but once you're finished it's easy to figure out how to do it without reading everything. I made it for Easter this week, everyone loved it. I used about 2 1/2 times the raspberries because it was a little bland. That did the trick. Definitely a keeper!
One of our favorite no bake cheesecakes. I do add up to a tablespoon of vanilla or 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond flavoring to the "white" layer because we initially found it too bland. Have also tried it with blueberries and enjoyed it that way as well. 1 packet of gelatin equals 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 teaspoons (aprox 7 g).
The instructions are confusing. It tells you to mix cream cheese and set aside and then to mix more cream cheese with sugar and stir in gelatin and transfer half of thisto another bowl. How many bowls of cream cheese do we need and how much is in the small bowl and how much is in the large bowl...?

SO pretty and SO delicious! Not too sweet. Made this for Easter dessert. My family loved it!
I think the crust should have been baked in order to hold its shape, and I totally agree with the "bland" rating. It is much more attractive than it is good tasting.
It's attractive and sounds good. But, it was a bit tedious to make, and the flavor is rather disappointingly bland. Chocolate layer not chocolately enough, and lacks a vibrant raspberry flavor.
