  • 200g malted milk biscuit, crushed to crumbs
  • 100g salted butter, melted
  • 5 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 x 300g tubs full fat soft cheese (we used Philadelphia; if you use soft or cream cheese from a deli counter the cheesecake might not set)
  • 300ml pot double cream
  • 300g white chocolate, melted
  • 200g bar milk chocolate, melted
  • 2 tbsp malt or Horlicks powder
  • 37g bag white Maltesers


  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.

Made this cheesecake last night, really easy and quick to make. Very rich but really tasty. Would definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe

2 words... IN LOVE!!! It was so easy and everyone loved it! It looked so good and professional, everyone wants the recipe but be sure to beat with a WISK because I once mad it without and tought it was good enough, I wasn't so I had a liquid cheesecake (but that was my fault because the recipe does say to do it with a wisk). Trie making this, it's so easy!!! My thanks to the maker of this recipe! :D - I'm one happy baker

AMAZING. Perfect if you have a very sweet tooth. Only need a small slice! Saved for the recipe file. I even took it to work to share and passed the recipe round...

Easy recipe to follow albeit a tad messy to make (maybe the latter is just me!) but it is well worth it. I've made this a number of times and has always gone down well. White maltesers a bonus but not a deal breaker - enjoy!

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!

Made this for family tea, it came out with a WOW. Been asked to make it again for cousins 21st.

This was fantastic... i am now making it again for another dinner party, it's great as you can make it the previous day, guests won't be taking any of this one home it's so good and easy too.

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!!
