Posted in request to a cheesecake that uses White Chocolate Morsels. I got this from Nestle's a few years ago and have made it several times. It is a wonderful cheesecake and the hint of orange will keep your guests coming back for more!

I found a similar recipe on the Nestle's website--the recipe now includes Cool Whip rather than whipped cream and a layer of their swirled morsels. I didn't like the swirled morsels in the cheesecake but the cheesecake layer was excellent. I used a teaspoon of orange extract rather than orange zest. Thanks for posting the recipe.
