Recipe Tips

Size-WiseThis party-size cheesecake is great for large crowds. Be mindful of serving size.

Special ExtraAfter chocolate topping is firm, place additional 2 oz. chocolate in microwaveable bowl. Microwave as directed on package. Pour into small resealable bag; seal bag. Snip off one small corner from bottom of bag; twist top of bag to squeeze chocolate from bag to pipe a special message, such as " Greetings," on top of cheesecake.
