I made the mistake of reading other reviews that suggested to microwave the white chocolate chips with the half and half. BIG MISTAKE. It came out VERY runny and so I put it in the saucepan to try to smooth it out, but that didn't really work. My suggestion: follow the directions exactly! When I put the runny mixture in the bowl with the batter, I beat it in and it mixed well, but the batter was extremely liquidy. This created a marbled cheesecake instead of the layers. I ended up having to cook the cheesecake in the oven for an extra 10 minutes or so. I followed other reviews and put a casserole dish of water on the bottom shelf underneath the cheesecake, then when it was finally done cooking, I just turned the oven off and let it sit for 45 min in the oven. Somehow, despite my mistake, it turned out to be the most amazing cheesecake I have ever made. I guess I just got lucky! It was so good, my boyfriend has suggested I start my own cheesecake business (ridiculous, I know). Anyway, my suggestion: follow the directions and it will be even better than my dumb luck!
