Pieday Friday ~ Cheeky chocolate cheesecake

Now that the sun has finally come out, it’s time to do away with hot puddings and start making yummy chilled desserts instead, so this week I have made a tasty chocolate cheesecake that I think you’ll adore. It’s great to be able to make this cheesecake ahead of time and keep it chilled – plus, it lasts for ages in the fridge – just keep it in a sealed container and you can enjoy a slice after dinner for the next three days (if it lasts that long without someone scoffing the lot!)


  • 200g digestive biscuits (possibly the cheapest biscuits you can buy!)
  • 75g butter
  • 300g white chocolate (around 35p supermarket basic white chocolate)
  • 284ml double cream
  • 250g soft cheese (50p supermarket-own-brand is fine)
  • 250g mascarpone

  1. First melt the butter in the microwave – this will only take about 20 seconds, so keep an eye on it! Next put your biscuits in a food storage bag and crush them up by bashing with a rolling-pin before adding to the melted butter and mixing thoroughly.
  2. Press the biscuit mixture into a loose-bottomed cake tin (so that it’s easier to remove the cheesecake later!) and compress with the back of a spoon – pushing a little up the sides if you like the rustic look 😉 Pop it into the fridge to chill.
  3. Whip the double cream until it is thick and stiff then add the soft cheese and mascarpone and whisk to combine.
  4. Melt the white chocolate (either over a pan of boiling water on the hob, or in 20 second-bursts in the microwave) and then mix into the cream and cheese mixture
  5. Smooth the cream cheese mixture out over your biscuit base then put back into the fridge until you’re ready to eat, then grate a little extra white and milk chocolate on top, pop it out of the cake tin and serve!
