Add a touch of elegance to store-bought cheesecake with the addition of a few simple ingredients.

Preparation Time
10 - 70 minutes

Cooking Time
10 minutes

Ingredients (serves 6)
80ml (1/3 cup) Frangelico liqueur

1x 360 frozen Sara Lee French Cream Cheesecake, thawed


  1. Place the Frangelico and sugar in a small saucepan over a low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until the syrup thickens slightly.
