  • 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.

Made two days before needed and put in freezer. I also sieved strawberrys as per previous comments. So easy to make and so many compliments will definately make again.

I decided to make it as a frozen cheesecake since the temperature for the day of eating was going to be over 30 degrees, it was perfect for a hot day. Very easy to make as well.

This was my proudest moment!! :) And it was all thanks to this brilliant recipe! Everyone loves my food, but the presentation is usually lacking :( However this time, the cake set beautifully & every slice looked like it should be served up for afternoon tea at The Ritz!
Not only did it look good but it tasted absolutely wonderful, a true dreamy texture & taste...enjoy!

forgot to mention - I also sieved the strawberries once whizzed so there were no seeds in the mousse - surprised the recipe doesn't say to do this - makes a big difference!

made this for my birthday last week - absolutely delicious, more mixture than my tin could carry though - lots left over - think this could become a signature dish!!

I forgot to say that I did drain the strawberries so that the pips were not added and it was great, just a shame that it was slightly grainy but knowone noticed that.
I must say that I wouldnt call this a cheesecake (even though the recipe does state to use soft cheese), definatley a mouse cake!

OMG this desert was devine, I made it for father's day and my dad loved it!!!
I had some Marks & Spencer white chocolate bars at home, but they did have vanilla in them as well, it did taste gorgeous but I think the texture went a little grainy, so I am not sure if it was the white chocolate.
Next time I will use milky bar white chocolate and see if that would work better, or does anyone know which white chocolate is better to use?

First cheesecake I have made and turned out perfect. I found it lumpy after mixing everything, especially the cheese so sieved it and then whisked it. Looks stunning.

Forgot to say, one thing I would donext time is sieve the strawberry puree before adding to the cream cheese and cream, to remove any pips remaining.

Didn't need gelatine to make it set, just beat it so the cream added the thickness needed. I used an 8" cake tin and could have used 3/4 of the mixture as was very generous topping. Quite sweet, but very nice, I used the lindt White chocolate with a hint of vanilla.

Gorgeous cheesecake, though I think that the strawberries definitely need to be very sweet and tasty. I didn't need to use gelatine but I altered the method slightly in that I whisked together first the cream cheese and strawberry puree before folding in the cream (which I had whisked to the 'floppy' stage first) and then finally adding the melted chocolate. The cheesecake set in the fridge after only 3 or 4 hours.

Very nice and very easy didn't use gelatine and it set very well it was in the fridge for good 12 hours everybody liked it.

First attempt disaster as added gelatine as others had recommended and the chocolate went all gluppie! So started again minus the gelatine and it worked perfectly well. Lovely light and very tasty.

this is absolutely superb and really easy to make.

I've made this twice and it's worked perfectly each time. Everybody that's tried it has loved it and I plan to keep making it whilst the strawberries taste good and are cheap.

Made this for a family birthday celebration. I don't usually make successful deserts - but this was! Will definately make again.

This tasted lovely - but do let it set overnight - i didn't have time and thought it would be ok for a while in the freezer instead but then it collapsed when i took it out of the tin! Disaster averted as we served it anyway and everone loved it despite the gloopiness but when i make it again i'll make sure i allow enough time for it to set properly!!!
