How to Shave the Chocolate

Hold room-temperature chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand over a sheet of waxed paper. Draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece to make thick shavings. To make shorter shavings, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. Add to dessert immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.

Springform Pan Tip

For easier removal of baked cheesecake from bottom of springform pan, insert the bottom rim-side down into springform pan; secure latch. Prepare cheesecake as directed. When ready to serve, carefully remove cheesecake from the base with metal spatula.
