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.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had never made this recipe before; but found it was very easy to make! I had never made this recipe before; but found it was very easy to make! I substituted the cocoa for french vanilla coffee and grated in 4 mini coffee crisp bars and it worked wonderfully. Shame I didn't have any irish cream - but the result - tasted like baileys anyway! We never need to buy cheesecake again because this is the best we have ever had! Didn't even need to use an electric blender for those who don't have one! TRY THIS RECIPE!
