  • After 5 minutes, score the chocolate layer into 9 to 16 pieces so it will be easier to cut later. Cover and chill the cheesecake until its time to serve. Makes 9 to 16 servings.

Tips

Instead of spreading the melted-chocolate mixture on top of the cheesecake, you can pour it in a mound on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spread into a 7-inch circle. Cool for 5 minutes. Use a cake comb to make swirls on the chocolate, if you like. Cool until chocolate holds a cut edge. Cut into wedges. Place on top of the cheesecake.
