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.

Fabulous recipe, really easy to make but looked very impressive. Very rich , even for my taste, you only need a small slice! Will definately be making this one again.

I made this for a large family gathering and it went down very well. I found it a bit rich and rather sweet, but Christmas is all about over indulging! The hardest part was preparing the tins, and over all it took about 20 minutes to do, so was definetely a quick pudding that looks great on the table.

Absolutely AMAZING cheesecake, although quite rich for some people so cut thin slices.
Have made this twice now and will definitely make again.

Everyone who has tasted this has loved it. Excellent results every time but very easy and quick to make. Feeds a crowd! Have also used components for other recipes e.g. The white chocolate component is lovely with a digestive base and strawberries.

I made this cheesecake for Boxing Day 2011 and it went down well with everyone. It is very rich and as there were only six of us I had plenty left over and it did freeze well. I made it again for a party of eight, mixed adults, teenagers and children and again it was very popular. It is very easy to make. The first time I made it I used light cream cheese, the second full fat. I think I preferred the lighter version.

This was lovely! I used digestives as couldn't get malt biscuits and turned out fine. It looks quite impressive with ther two layers too. Not too difficult to make either.

This is the best cheesecake ever!
I made one for a BBQ had a request for another the next week and everyone has gone on about it ever since, Even poeple that don't even like cheesecake loved it. I have already made three now and about the make a forth!
So quick and easy to make.
Much better then the five star rated, double chocolate cheesecake which i have also made.

Wonderful desert!! Like other people have said though it is very rich and you only need a very small portion. I had some the next day and left it out of the fridge for an hour before and as it had melted slightly it tasted even better!
