Tips

Expert Tips

  • Purchase chocolate wafers to crush for the recipe. Look for them in slim boxes at the grocery store near cookies, baking ingredients and/or ice cream toppings. Or, use chocolate cookie crumbs found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.
  • Let the cheesecake stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before cutting and serving it; the stand time helps the fudge adhere to the cake.
  • To make buffet service easy, pre-cut the cheesecake squares in the pan.
