Variation Substitute foil-lined 13x9-inch pan for the springform pan. Mix crust ingredients as directed. Press onto bottom of prepared pan; cover with prepared filling. Bake 45 min. or until centre is almost set. Cool completely in pan. Spread with Cool Whip mixture. Refrigerate 4 hours. Use ends of foil to remove cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.

How to Shave ChocolateWarm 1 oz. chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate piece steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over the chocolate to form shavings. Repeat with remaining chocolate piece.
