I always thought that my mum didn’t like cheese cake because she didn’t like cream cheese! Turns out she’s never even tried it, so we decided to make our own!
Your ingredients are as follows!
- 50g melted butter,
- 14 crushed digestive biscuits,
- 200g soft cream cheese,
- 280ml double cream (you can use whipped but I prefer double),
- 2tsp vanilla extract,
- 150g of melted Terry Chocolate Orange (Or any chocolate you like),
- Extra chocolate peices to decorate!
So first, combine your butter and digestive biscuits! Making sure its well mixed before adding it to your cake tin and patting it down! (I used a potatoe masher).
For this recipe, its best to have a cake tin in which the bottom comes out for easier cutting!
Freeze this for thirty minutes!
Next, pour your cream in to a bowl and the two tea spoons of vanilla extract before whipping it in to a peak! Then fold in your cream cheese and melted chocolate (make sure its cooled a bit or the cream may curdle). Now, add your cream mixture to the top of the biscuit base and decorate how you want.
Leave it in the fridge for 2-3 hours until it sets (I made mine quite late and left it in the fridge overnight).
Take it out of the fridge and cut!
This was my mums first delve in to the Cheesecake world and she thoroughly enjoyed it!
