When I’m not obsessing about having a baby (pretty rare to be honest) I love to cook, especially baking and desserts so I thought I’d share a recipe for a dessert I made to take to my Mum’s on Christmas Day. If I can work out how to, I’ll try to post a pic of it… It’s a dessert that if you like cheesecake, you’ll love it, and if you like indulgent desserts, you’ll love it. Definitely no calories counted in this one!
Malt Chocolate Cheesecake
200g malted milk biscuits, crushed to crumbs
100g salted butter, melted
5 tbsp caster sugar
2 x 300g tubs full fat soft cheese (I used Philadelphia; if you use soft or cream cheese from a deli counter the cheesecake might not set)
300ml pot double cream
300g white chocolate, melted
200g bar milk chocolate, melted
2 tbsp malt or Horlicks powder
37g bag white Maltesers (I couldn’t find any white Maltesers so substituted with giant chocolate buttons).
Line base and sides of a deep, 22-23cm loose-bottomed round tin with baking parchment. Mix the biscuits, melted butter and 2 tbsp of the sugar, then press into base. Chill while you make the filling.
Divide cream cheese and cream evenly between 2 bowls. Add the white chocolate to one, and the milk chocolate, malt and remaining 3 tbsp sugar to the other. Beat each with an electric whisk until smooth.
Spread the milk chocolate mixture evenly in the tin. Wipe round the edge to give a smooth edge. Spoon the white chocolate mix over the top and gently smooth. Decorate with Maltesers and chill for at least 5 hrs until firm. Enjoy!
