  • 300g philadelphia cream cheese
  • 250g mascarpone cheese
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2 x 300g white chocolate bar. You can use any type of chocolate and even use less
  • 500g biscuits e.g. digestives
  • Few knobs of butter
  • Fruit for topping e.g. strawberries


    1. Crush the biscuits until completely ground. Add butter (either in food processor or gently heat on hob) until desired crumbly consistency.
    2. Add the biscuit mixture to a cake tin and pat till flat. TIP: Key is to use the right amount of butter to bind the biscuit together; too little, and it will be really crumbly; too much and it will become soft. Leave to set in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes.
    3. Begin melting the chocolate in a glass bowl over a a small pan of hot water on a low heat. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
    4. Mix the philadelphia and mascarpone cheese together with a whisk; hand or electric. Add double cream and whisk. Finally, add melted chocolate to the mixture and whisk. The mixture may seem slightly 'curdled' just continue whisking.
    5. Spoon the mixture over the cooled and set biscuit base. Return to the fridge to cool for as long as possible, until the topping is set. Finally decorate with fruit or other topping.

In the fridge now, seems to be ok, didn't us all the biscuit base as it seemed a bit deep to me. I made 4 individual servings in pots, the kids will provide feedback later. Thanks.

Great recipe. Really easy to follow and delicious. I used slightly less white chocolate (400g) and just used Philadelphia rather than a mix of mascarpone and soft cheese.

Awful! I followed the recipe to a T and there was too much base the filling was too cheesy I had to make up the rest of the filling as there was no taste!

Delicious!!! : ) VERY easy to make , I used all the chocolate but next time I'll be using less as it tasted to much of chocolate and did not get enough taste of the cream cheese but it was still lovely

I tried this recipe exactly as it was and the results were brilliant, the cheesecake was all gone in 2 days, it was delicious, thank you gingerella for the recipe

Decided to make 1.5 times the recipe to feed 9 instead of 6. Ended up with far too much biscuit and made 2 fully sized cheesecakes instead of 1 large one as intended. However the cake itself was really nice and it was easy to make. I added M&M's to make it a white chocolate and M&M cheesecake, putting them in the mix and using them to decorate. It made a marble effect of colours in the cake so looked really cool!!

Ingredients amounts are definitely a little off! I used 12 digestive biscuits with 75g of melted butter. Way too much cream also - I would halve and also added a layer of Philly Choc Cream Cheeese on the biscuit base as an added extra!!

Absolutely lovely...thank you! Made as written, other than being 100g of biscuits short (accidentally rather than intentionally to be fair) lovely all the same.

Thanks for this recipe. One of the first Cheese Cakes I've made an took it too a party. Everyone absolutely loved it. I did use a little less White Chocolate but very easy to make if your not an expert in the Kitchen.

This cheesecake sounds daughter has requested a white chocolate cheesecake instead of a birthday cake so i think this is the one ! What size of tin or dish to you use and is it deep? Thanks :)

Loved this recipe. We used about 200g of biscuits, 400g of white chocolate and added the cheeses and cream to taste in a 20cm tin and it was fine, gave a medium base. This recipe created a beautifully velvety cheesecake and we thought the recipe was very easy to follow! Thanks for putting on here.

I used 400 grams of white chocolate and 300 grams of biscuits and that was plenty. This is a fantastic recipe so easy to make and the instructions were so easy to follow. LOVE THIS !

I think you'll find absolutely has an e in it- might want to hit spell check before trying to STRIKE OFF someone else's recipe.

My girlfriend and I have made this a number of times for family and friends and it's always been a hit, quantities will always vary depending on the size you intend to make, personal preferences and baking instruments.

Perhaps it's time to stick to beans on toast chilman- and maybe invest in a dictionary- STRIIIIIIIIIIKE IT OOOOFFFF!!!

I have been making this for years and its wonderful, however I think the chocolate should be 3X100g of white chocolate. I use Green and Blacks white chocolate. 600g would be excessive.

It's completely upto you the weight of biscuits you wish to use depending on how thick you like the base to be. The recipe was given to me by a friend who did make a thick base and I like it like that. So when giving me the recipe, she suggested one pack of digestive biscuits which are 500g. I think I did have some of the crumbs left over, though.

I will update the recipe when I have the time but am trying to finish a PhD in Physics at the moment, though. :)

Thanks for the rating and comments. I actually wasn't using this website to provide recipes for others; I was using it as a place to keep my recipes rather than on scraps of paper or scattered through my e-mail account or Facebook messages. I have absolutely no problem with my English. I wrote the recipe quickly, and in note form in some places, as it was only meant for me. (The spelling mistakes are inexcusable, though. :p) Nevertheless, apologies to anyone who wasn't able to follow the recipe as it is a delicious cheesecake!

I have made this recipe with raspberries and it is delicious.....perhaps half quantity of biscuits depending on how thick / thin you wish the base to be.
I Think 'Chilman's' comment is a rude ...this is not a literary website...if it were then he should pay attention to his own grammar before commenting on other peoples....

Chilman - 'absolutely poorly' is a double adjective! this does not make good wording!
