Recipe Tips

Size-WiseNeed a sweet treat to serve a crowd? Try this chocolatey dessert! Since it serves 16 people, it easily fits the bill.

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 center 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 Make Chocolate CurlsWarm 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 piece steadily and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate, allowing a thin layer to curl as it is peeled off the bottom of the chocolate piece to make long, delicate curls. Or to make shorter curls, use the same technique using the narrow side of the chocolate piece.
