Instructions Cheesecake Filling:

  8. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
  9. Place the Springform pan in a water bath. The water should go up halfway up the outside of the springform pan.
  10. Bake for one hour. When baked the center will still move slightly when shaken.
  11. After the hour, turn off the oven, open the door and let the cheesecake sit in the oven for 1 hour.
  12. Let cool on a wire rack to cool. Let cool completely before covering to the top with foil. Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to set. It’s best to leave overnight.
