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 a fairly simple and quick cheesecake to make however i found it does use quite a lot of ingredients which could be costly. I made it for a dinner party and it had only begun to set after about 6hrs and it had also been in the freezer for about 40min. I would definitely recommend chilling this overnight to get the best texture. Looks absolutely great in the middle of the table and the malteasers to really finish it off. Everyone who had some loved it and asked for the recipe but to my taste it was very rich and creamy but it's fresh tasting and finishing off a meal nicely. Will probably be making again as it's so easy and quick and looks fantastic.

Made this loads of times now, it is so easy yet impressive, very rich so don't need huge portions but truly lovely.

I prepared this for friends a few days ago. It is really really easy to prepare (took me 20 minutes), but the end result was astounding. Creamy, malty, chocolatey goodness. It is rather rich, so go slow with the portions. I will certainly prepare this fab cheesecake again!

This is a really tasty cheesecake and very easy to make. It's looks lovely too. But it is very rich and sits heavy on a tummy. So if you are planning to make it as part of a meal, leave a layer out. I would make this again for a special occasion as long as I have a large number of people to feed. It does not freeze well as I found out recently. We had to throw away the frozen portions

Yes, it is incredibly rich and yes, the calorie count is huge but just enjoy! I followed the recipe exactly and the result was as just as pictured. One small tip do make sure you really press the layers of milk and white chocolate into the side of the tin to ensure neat edges when the tin is removed. This was chilled overnight, covered loosely with foil and lasted well for 2 days (being kept in the fridge when not been eaten).

I made this cheese cake yesterday for a dinner party today. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect, it set so well and looked very professional! It was rich but I served very thin slices, will definitely be making this again!

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.
