Chilled Coffee Cheesecake

It's been long long time I didn't make this cheesecake and I'm recently quite naughty with sweet and rich flavour of desserts. So, I made this to fill my appetite. The cheesecake very creamy with rich coffee flavour and the chopped chocolate beads has enhanced its texture!

Since my biscotti and cookies jar had emptied, I tried the wholewheat cookies recipe from HHB to refill some cookies to the jar. I don't have any pretty cookie cutter so I just cut them into square. It's quite a rustic but I love the country look. The texture is crispy and crunchy! Although the process was a bit troublesome but it's worthwhile! Thanks HHB for sharing a great recipe again!
