  • 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.

very nice but you can't eat too much of it, very rich

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.

Made this a couple of times now and never disappoints. Great cheesecake, very sweet. Went down well with friends and family. One of our favourites.

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.

Tasted great, enough for at least 12 people but did not set in 7 hours! Followed recipe exactly but was like thick yoghurt :(

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.

Wow!! Super-rich cheesecake, soooo nice though, but use small slices!

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!

this sounds great-might make this for my granny she has a sweet tooth and a broken leg so it might cheer her up.

Very rich and very sweet. Mixed reviews from my family and friends who tried mine, some loved it some didn't.

Amazing! Have tried it with both chocolate layers, just the milk chocolate & just the white & it's been fantastic every time. I'm also ashamed to admit I prefer it with hobnob biscuits- probably missing the malt point somewhat, but nicer texture! Brilliant pudding to whip out of the fridge & take to the table at the end of a special meal for friends & family. To make it even more refined I have also made individual ones on occasion.

Really easy to make and went down a storm with everybody. It is very sweet so a small slice is plenty. The malted milk base is a nice change from the ubiquitous digestive biscuits.

Live in France where they don't do double cream, anyone any other suggestion ?
