Substitute

Prepare using bourbon. Or for a non-alcoholic version, substitute milk for the liqueur.

How to Make Chocolate Curls

Use spatula to spread melted chocolate into thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until 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 stand a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curl on waxed paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on cheesecake.
