Cover and chill at least 8 hours. Remove sides of pan, and transfer cheesecake to a serving platter. Garnish with chocolate curls*, if desired. Yield: 12 servings +You can substitute an 8-inch pan for this cheesecake recipe, if desired. The larger cheesecake will require only 45 to 50 minutes baking time. *To make chocolate curls, melt 3 squares semisweet chocolate. Pour the melted chocolate onto wax paper and spread to a 3-inch wide strip. Let stand until cool but not firm. Pull a vegetable peeler across the chocolate, and transfer curls to a plate. Store chocolate curls in the freezer. **Chocolate-Mint Cheesecake: Substitute 1/4 c creme de menthe for amaretto.
