Excellent presentation added to a store bought cheesecake...

Person brought an awesome looking cake to an Xmas party yesterday. It was a store bought cheese cake that didn't have topping. The person put a layer of chocolate over the top, then dipped strawberries in chocolate and put them on top of the thin layer of chocolate. I wish I spoke to him more to discover how he did it.

If I were to attempt something like that, what type of supermarket chocolate should I buy? I assume I just melt it in a double broiler?

Just when I thought cheesecake couldn't get any better

Here's a sample recipe for the chocolate glaze.

Thank you also for the link! I guess my question was, can I just melt chocolate chips or should I add bittersweet and add sugar and cream to make more of a ganache?

I just use chocolate chips myself. I don't think its necessary to use bittersweet.
