How to Make The Best Chocolate Ricotta Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

    this over low heat so that chocolate does not scorch. Beat together remaining
    ingredients until blended. Beat in melted chocolate. Pour into prepared crust

    center, comes out clean. Do not overbake. Allow to cool in pan and then
    refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours. Overnight is better. Decorate top with chocolate
    curls. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before serving. Serves 12
