Kraft Kitchens tips:

Enjoy a serving of this decadent treat on special occasions.

Place a square of BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate in freezer-weight resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Microwave on HIGH 30 sec. Squeeze bag to melt chocolate. Fold down top tightly and cut small piece (about 1/8 inch) off one of the bottom corners of bag. Holding top of bag firmly, drizzle chocolate through opening in desired patterns on cheesecake.

Reduce oven temperature to 300°F if using a dark nonstick springform pan.
