Kraft Kitchen Tips!
This party-size cheesecake is great for large crowds. Be mindful of serving size.
After chocolate topping is firm, place 2 additional chocolate squares in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM 2 min., stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. 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.
