Prepare Pans: Use 6, 8 and 10 in. springform pans (3 in. deep). Place a cake circle (6, 8, 10 in.) over bottom; butter sides of pans. Wrap outside of pans with aluminum foil.
Prepare Crust: Mix 3 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs with 3/4 cup sugar and 1 stick (1/2 cup) melted butter. Press firmly onto bottoms of prepared pans using 3/4 cup for 6 in., 1 cup for 8 in. and 1 3/4 cups for 10 in. pan.
Prepare Batter: Place cream cheese and 2/3 cup sugar in mixing bowl. Using electric mixer, cream mixture until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, while mixing. Melt Candy Melts following package directions; cool 7-10 minutes. (It is important that candy be cooled, but still liquid; if candy is too hot, it will get lumpy when added to batter.) Add cooled candy, vanilla and whipping cream to cream cheese mixture; blend well. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake Cheesecakes: Place each foil-wrapped pan into a larger pan or oven-proof dish. Pour hot water into outer pans to fill 1/2 in. deep. Bake in center of preheated 300° oven: for 6 in. cake, 1 hr. 45 min.; for 8 in. cake, 2 hrs. 10 min.; for 10 in. cake, 2 hrs. 30 min. To test for doneness, gently shake pan. Top of cake should move as one solid piece with no movement in center (cakes will set completely when refrigerated). Remove from oven to cool then refrigerate overnight.

Made this cheesecake for my anniversary. When adding the white chocolate you have to make sure the chocolate is cool. I put the chocolate in when the it was warm and it made lumps. The lumps melted when it was cooked and the cheesecake still turned out OK and it had a very nice taste. Everybody enjoyed it. The only problem I had is that the cheesecake was it was put out on the food table and it was warm in the hall so it started to get soft and the strawberies and glaze started to run. If you make this cheesecake bring it out just before you want to cut it. I didn't have the tier set that it shows in the picture but I used my floating set and it still made a nice looking cheessecake.
