How to Make Chocolate Curls

Warm chocolate slightly by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long delicate curls. To make short curls, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made many different recipes but none better than this one. I have made many different recipes but none better than this one. My son loves cheesecake and anything lemon so when I found this recipe online I gave it a try for his birthday and was not disappointed. Even though the batter was thick it baked up very smooth, creamy and not dense as I thought it might.I changed the sugar in the crust to cinnamon and sugar and added ground walnuts. I was pleased with the end result. If you like cheesecake with a hint of lemon and many recipes call for either lemon juice or zest anyway, you will certainly enjoy this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from +++ Amazing recipe. +++ Amazing recipe. I have made it several times, but for the 4th of July I decided to make it festive. After spreading the cool whip on top, I sliced strawberries in half and laid them in a circle around the edge. I also put 5-halves in the center making a flower design. Between the outside and inside rings, I placed blueberries to fill in the top, plus a blueberry in the middle of the center ring of strawberries. I melted white chocolate and drizzled little lines all over the top. It was so beautiful and the taste with lemon and berries was so delish!! I can't wait to make a repeat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alright, this recipe was good and we really enjoyed it, but I have a few points to make...1. Alright, this recipe was good and we really enjoyed it, but I have a few points to make...1. This is not a simple recipe. Lots of ingredients too! 2. I had to use my 10 inch springform b/c there is a LOT of batter and it is very thick 4. Because it was so thick, I could not prevent cracking, but it didnt' really matter b/c you cover it with cool whip 3. I could not find the strawberry cool whip ANYWHERE, so I used regular and instead of chocolate curls, I put fresh strawberries on top-and it was really good. I will make it again, but only if I am out to make an impression!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This turned out terrific! This turned out terrific! Even my very picky father liked it! One hint/suggestion for those of you who can't find Strawberry Cool Whip--buy regular cool whip and mix it with Yoplait Strawberry Whipped Yogurt (be sure to get the whipped kind so it's super creamy and fluffy) and stir it gently into the cool whip; be sure not to beat it too hard, or it will turn runny. Add a dash of red food coloring for more of a pink color, and it tastes and looks like the Strawberry Cool Whip mentioned in the receipe. No one will ever know the difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for a luncheon at work. I made this recipe for a luncheon at work. It was gone before the main course was finished. There wasn't a crumb left. It was absolutely wonderful. I received so many compliments. It was very creamy with just the right amount of lemon flavor. I used regular whipped topping with fresh strawberries that I finely chopped. I also used a pan of hot water on the lower rack of my oven to prevent cracking. It turned out perfect and was really thick like the expensive cheesecakes found at bakeries. I will definitely make this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bake and cook Kraft recipes ALL the time and really love everything. I bake and cook Kraft recipes ALL the time and really love everything. I was disappointed with this one however because this recipie did not fit in a 9" springform pan, it overflowed and took more than an hour and a half to bake @300 (because I was using a dark pan). I double and triple checked my ingredients amounts and everything was correct. I even had a larger pan available but it was too late. I haven't tasted this yet but felt compelled to share as I would definitely recommend using a larger pan if you have one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT recipe! EXCELLENT recipe! I had my doubts because of the inclusion of packaged pudding mixes, but the cheesecake did not taste artificial. I couldn't find the strawberry Cool Whip and had planned on making my own strawberry whipped cream, but my guests didn't want to wait for me to whip it up, so I used a jar of homemade lemon curd instead, which made the taste sensation more tart and lemony (the way I like lemon flavored desserts). Everyone declared it perfect and they all ate huge pieces. This one's a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cheesecake for a baby shower at work And it was fabulous! I made this cheesecake for a baby shower at work And it was fabulous! I like the way it looked after it cooled, sometimes a cheesecake deflates after it has cooled not true of this cheesecake the texture was excellent, cool creamy and very rich without being heavy. This cake was so pretty with the whipped topping and white chocolate shavings we almost didn't want to cut it! I am sure this Will be a requested favorite for all of our future office gatherings!
