In the bowl of a food processor, place the pecans and cocoa powder. Whir to powder.
Add in the sea salt and pitted dates. Process until the mixture clumps together and is easily pressed together. Press into a loaf pan lined with waxed paper or parchment for easy lifting!! Set Aside.
In the bowl of the same processor, place all the cheesecake ingredients and whir until smooth and creamy, scraping sides down if necessary. taste and decide if you want to add the balsamic vinegar for the extra tang...it's really a fun taste-sensation!
Pour on top of the awaiting crust. Place in the freezer to firm up.
After about an hour, you can lift the whole bit up and out to slice into desired shape. I store mine in the freezer, but the fridge works too!
