Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325ºF.
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended; pour into prepared pan.
Bake 1 hour or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Use foil handles to lift cheesecake from pan. Crumble cheesecake into large bowl. Add strawberries; mix well. Shape into 48 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. for each. Roll in graham crumbs until evenly coated. Place on parchment-covered rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Melt chocolate as directed on package. Dip cheesecake balls, 1 at a time, in chocolate; return to baking sheet. Sprinkle with any remaining graham crumbs. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is firm.
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
Cut 4 additional strawberries into wedges. Use to garnish chocolate-dipped balls before sprinkling with any remaining graham crumbs and refrigerating as directed.
