Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Since this ultra-indulgent cheesecake makes 16 servings, it's the perfect dessert to serve at your next party.
Reduce oven temperature to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan.
Garnish cake with white and dark chocolate curls. Warm 1 oz. Baker's White Chocolate by microwaving it, unwrapped, on MEDIUM 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 flat bottom of the chocolate piece, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make long, delicate curls. Repeat with Baker's Premium 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate.
