Yammie's Noshery's M & M Cheesecake

So I have to preface this by saying I was hesitant to share this, because it wasn't entirely successful.  However, everyone really enjoyed the taste, and it is a good cheesecake.  I feel like this could have been so much better, if the recipe were perfected a little.  I know this seems to have worked for the author, and also for another person that left a comment, so the fault with the recipe could be entirely my own.  That said, this was a frustrating experience.
Sorry about the blurry picture, I didn't notice it was blurry until I had deleted all the other ones :).  Anyway, this recipe can be found here, and I followed the recipe exactly.  Here were the problems I encountered.  The recipe says 2 c pretzel crumbs, or a little more, and I used just more than 2 c pretzel crumbs, and my crust came apart.  I would either use just under 2 c, and bake it first, then put the chocolate chips on top, or make less.  I felt that this cheesecake should NOT be made in a 9 inch springform pan, regardless of what the recipe says.  If the crust and the cheesecake were put in a 13 inch springform or even divided between two 9 inch ones, this recipe would have been so much more successful.  I had a sticky mess on the bottom of my oven, so not happy about that :(.  Also, the M&M's were super difficult to cut through, because of how packed together they were (again, I think this would be solved by halving the recipe or making two).  Now, enough of the negative, we really did love this cheesecake, because like every recipe we have tried from Yammie's Noshery, this was delicious.  Noah gave it a perfect 10, Owen gave it a 9, Aaron gave it an 8, and I gave it a 7, only because of my frustrations.  Each serving was 565 calories, for 16 slices.  The picture is of 2 slices, because it was so hard to cut it so that it looked good.  It fell apart because of the hard M&M's and crust that wouldn't stay together.  Anyway, try this and see if it works out, I love how delicious it is :)
