How long will it last? You can store your cheesecake in the fridge for up to a week. Make sure to cover it with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to store it. It can last in the freezer for up to 3 months if stored in the proper freezer-safe container.

Pro TipChop the german chocolate baking bars into pieces and add them to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30-second intervals and stir after each interval. Repeat until the chocolate is completely smooth. Be patient and do small intervals otherwise you'll burn your chocolate.
