Tips for making this Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake

  • Before you start, place the chocolate bar into the freezer to chill and shave just before serving.
    It will be so much easier to shave it and can be done with either a grater or vegetable peeler.
  • No need to scrape the filling from those chocolate cookies.
    We use the whole cookie here.
  • I used a dark hot chocolate mix in this recipe, but you can use milk chocolate or whatever you prefer.
  • Cover the entire cheesecake with the cherry pie filling.
    We want to make sure that they’ll enjoy it in every bite.
  • Slice and then serve with the remaining Cool Whip and shave the chocolate over the top.
