Let's Make It
Combine graham crumbs, butter and 1/4 cup sugar; press onto bottom of foil-lined 8-inch round pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatine over 1/2 cup water in medium bowl; set aside. Bring remaining water and sugar to boil in saucepan. Add to gelatine; stir until completely dissolved. Cool 5 min.
Beat cream cheese and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add gelatine, mixing well after each addition.
Remove 2-1/2 cups cream cheese mixture; pour into separate bowl. Add melted chocolate and food coloring; mix well.
Line 1-1/2-qt. bowl with plastic wrap. Spoon 1 cup plain cream cheese mixture into prepared bowl. Refrigerate 20 min. Meanwhile, let remaining cream cheese mixtures stand at room temperature until ready to use.
Spoon half the red cream cheese mixture over plain cream cheese mixture layer in bowl; refrigerate 20 min. Repeat both layers, refrigerating dessert 20 min. after each new layer is added.
Remove crust from pan; place on top of bowl. Refrigerate 2 hours or until cheesecake is firm.
Invert cheesecake onto plate. Remove and discard plastic wrap. Frost cheesecake with COOL WHIP. Decorate with sprinkles and berries.
Since you line the empty bowl with plastic wrap before using as directed, cleanup is a snap.
If you need to transport this fun dessert to a different location, leave it in the bowl until you arrive at your destination and are ready to serve it. Unmold dessert onto plate, then frost and decorate it as directed. The bowl will help protect it during transport.
Since this festive cheesecake makes 16 servings, it is the perfect dessert to serve at your next party.
