    Combine dark chocolate and extra cream in a saucepan over low heat. Cook and stir for 3 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Spread ganache evenly over chilled cheesecake. Chill for 30 minutes or until set. Drizzle with extra melted white chocolate. Stand cheesecake until set. Cut into 15 squares. Serve.

Notes

To melt white chocolate melts, place in a microwave-safe bowl, then microwave on High (100%) in 30-second bursts, stirring, until melted and smooth. Use a teaspoon to drizzle onto cheesecake. Rotate brownie halfway through cooking to ensure it cooks evenly. Try milk chocolate instead of dark.
