Better For YouSave 60 calories and 8g of fat per serving by preparing with Reduced Fat OREO Cookies, Neufchatel cheese and reduced-fat sour cream.

How to Bake in a Springform PanPrepare as directed, using a 9-inch springform pan and reserving just 1/2 cup of the plain batter for swirling. Increase baking time to 55 min. to 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run small knife or spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim.

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.
