Method

  1. Line base and sides of a deep, 22-23cm loose-bottomed round tin with baking parchment. Mix the biscuits, melted butter and 2 tbsp of the sugar, then press into base. Chill while you make the filling.
  2. Divide cream cheese and cream evenly between 2 bowls. Add the white chocolate to one, and the milk chocolate, malt and remaining 3 tbsp sugar to the other. Beat each with an electric whisk until smooth.
  3. Spread the milk chocolate mixture evenly in the tin. Wipe round the edge to give a smooth edge. Spoon the white chocolate mix over the top and gently smooth. Decorate with Maltesers and chill for at least 5 hrs until firm.

This was delicious! Served 10 generously. I didn't have the Horlicks powder but it turned out great :) will make it again!

OMG, an amazing cheescake- I love sweet puddings, especially chocolate ones and I wouldn't change a thing- absolutely scrummy- and easy to make.

I made this for a friend's big birthday and received many compliments. I was shocked at the fat content so it is not surprising that it was so rich. The malt biscuit base was very nice. Despite being quite straight forward to make I'm not sure I'll make this again but if I do I'll just make one layer - probably white chocolate.

Just made this a few minutes ago as of typing this. For some reason I couldn't find white Matesers ANYWHERE! Oh well, it's still looking great. Can't wait to try the malty flavour!

Wow!! Some friends and I had this at a pub one day and fell in love. I got searching when I got home and found this recipe. I make it without the white layer, just a deep layer of the milk chocolate mixture. It's absolutely scrumptious and as it's also pretty rich a little slice is enough, so plenty for everyone. Fairly easy and quick to make too. I declare it a Winner!!

Quick, very easy and delicious!

To die for - this really is easy and SO tasty! Full of calories so make sure to have enough people around to eat it - as we found out it's impossible to resist in the fridge.

Oh. My. Goodness. Very nice but extremely rich and very sweet even without the 5 tbsp extra sugar which, like other people, I left out. The suggested quantities would serve 15-20, especially if eaten after a main course. Easy to make, but looks and tastes like you've slaved over it for hours :-)

This cheesecake was delicious! So easy to make and it went down very well with everyone. I left out the extra sugar as it didn't need it, it was very rich and sweet anyway. A great recipe!

Absolutely loved this! I added honeycomb to the chocolate layer too and that worked really well. I would definitely recommend this x

I made this a few weeks back and had to leave half of my serving as I thought it was too rich, tried it the next day after it had set in the fridge overnight and wow, it was like a baked cheesecake but with absolutely no cooking needed! Had a full serving to myself and didn't find it too rich at all!
The next time I make this, I may make a thicker base as I found the base was fairly thin and lets face it, the base is the most delicious part of a cheesecake!
It could also be used as a normal cheesecake, take the malted powder out and use digestives. I may try this alternative sometime.
Overall, a fantastic chocolate cheesecake!!

I felt the same with the base. Will you double the ingredients for the base if you make again?

This was an amazing cheesecake..I added crushed maltesers to the white chocolate mix, delicious! The kids think I'm amazing. Very filling though. Going to try it next time with light ingredients. Hey..malt cheesecake...the lighter way to enjoy cheesecake!!! ;)

I made this today and totally forgot about the sugar in the base and in the milk chocolate part, but I have to say I'm glad I did because it tasted amazing without the sugar and by some of the other comments about the sweetness. I didnt add the cream cheese to the white chocolate part as I was concerned about it being too 'cheesey' so I just added the melted white chocolate to whipped cream and that set perfectly. I will def be making this again and will try to remember my tweaks!
