3. Place a wooden stick in the center of the half slice of "deeply chilled" cheesecake (should look like a lollypop). Completely submerge the Cheesecake "Lollypop" in melted chocolate (see following recipe for melted chocolate) Be sure to cover the entire slice keeping a clean stick for a handle. (Variation: Using a spoon, pour the chocolate over the Cheesecake "Lollypop".)
4. Once the slice has been covered in chocolate, hold it over the mixture to let most of the excess drip off.
5. Immediately decorate with sprinkles or chopped nuts by rolling them in the toppings; Set on a sheet pan.
6. Once the slice has been dipped and garnished, return it to the freezer to set. After setting, each slice can be wrapped in a Cellophane bag or plastic wrap for up to one week in the freezer.
