Sweet cheese can be found at most Middle Eastern, Arab and Mediterranean shops in both the refrigerated and frozen sections (some packages even show a photo of kunefe). There are different version, such as Armenian and Syrian, and they all work well for this recipe. If you cannot find sweet cheese, you can use unsalted mozzarella. Refrigerate any leftover syrup in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
