I've made this about 5 times now and everytime it's a winner. First time I made it I made the mistake of not putting enough philli in (got the pack sizes wrong) and it came out beautiful. A little softer than if you were to use the right amount, but I personally preferred it like that. So even if you go wrong this recipe still turns out a winner! Everyone who comes to dinner always hopes it's Tia Maria Cheesecake on the menu :)

I did this for a dinner party dessert it looked and tasted so perfect they did not believe me when I said I had made it. Instead of using the chocolates I have uses bite sized pieces of chocolate flake for decoration.
