  • 400g white chocolate
  • 400g strawberries



    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • 300g tub full-fat soft cheese
  • 200ml double cream


  1. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin to fine crumbs, add the melted butter and mix well. Tip the mix into a 20cm lined, loose-bottomed cake tin, smooth with the back of a spoon and put in the fridge for 30 mins.

  2. Melt 375g of the chocolate in a microwave or glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water, then allow to cool slightly.

  3. Take out 6 nice-looking strawberries and set aside. Blitz the remaining strawberries in a food processor until smooth, then add them to a bowl with the soft cheese and cream. Beat until really smooth and thick, then stir in the melted white chocolate. Pour on top of the biscuit base and smooth the top. Place in the fridge and chill overnight.

  4. Halve the reserved strawberries and place on top of the cheesecake. Melt the remaining 25g chocolate and drizzle over the top, then keep chilled until ready to serve.

Looks great, tastes lovely and fairly easy.

Have made this loads of times- with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries - no matter what the berry used it has turned out well and don't understand why some people have wanted to add gelatin.
It is a firm favourite with my family and because it freezes well I have three tucked away for emegencies !!!!!!

Please help, I plan to make this and then freeze for a funeral tea next week. Can anyone tell me shall I put the strawberries and choc on then freeze, will it be ok? Or shall I buy more strawberrys next week and do it on the morning (bearing in mind I have to be up early and it has to travel!!) thanks in advance

Didn't drizzle white chocolate over the top - but not sure it needed it.

So easy, but looks a very professional dessert. Made it a couple of times now and just about to start one for Friday supper party. I did find I needed more white choc at the end when drizzling it over the finished cake.

This is very easy to make and tastes wonderful. I'm not very good with desserts but I was very pleased with this.

I did not chill mine overnight, therefore, it was slightly a bit too soft but nobody really noticed (they were being Polite) I will chill it overnight when I make it again this weekend.

Thanks GF for a great receipe.

so easy to make and is delicious. I was worried this was going to be sickly but it was just right. So simple to do with minimum effort, and was loved by everyone, will definitely be making this one again. Found it set very well by chilling it overnight.

It turned out just as it looks in the picture and tasted fab. :) Need sweet strawberries though!

sieved the strawberry puree before adding it....set perfectly but did leave it over night, looked and tasted great.

Looked great, until it came out of the tin and collapsed on the plate. Very disappointed!! It did taste nice - but the strawberries do need to have a strong flavour or will be lost.

Again, an absolute winner. I'm always a bit wary of white chocolate puds as they tend to be too sweet but this one really wasn't. My tub of cream cheese was 250g rather than 300 but that was fine. I also didn't chill it for long enough (ie not overnight) and it was a little soft but I definitely got away with it. The great thing is that I have cut the leftovers into portions and will freeze - but I will definitely be doing it again, and I will definitely make ahead and freeze. I used "luxury" cooking choc from the bakery section of the supermarket and it was perfect. A great desert.

I made this again for my mum's birthday on Wednesday and this time I used the milky bar white chocolate and it didint go grainy, it was so light and very very morish!! Its definaltley a crowd pleaser - well done Jane Hornby in getting this recipe on Good Food.
