Recipe Tips
  • Size-Wise
    Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a serving of this festive cheesecake.
  • Substitute
    Substitute bourbon for the Irish cream liqueur. Or for a non-alcoholic version, substitute milk for the liqueur.
  • How to Make the Chocolate Curls
    Use spatula to spread melted chocolate into thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until chocolate is still firm, but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly along the baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, let it stand for a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curls on wax paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on cheesecake.
