  • 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.

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 ?

Turned out just like the picture and tasted lovely too, only complaint is it was very rich but that's what you would expect from a cheesecake. For that reason I would suggest a serving of 16 rather than 10 as you could cut each quarter into 4 and that would be just the right amount. Appart from that this is a must as it doesn't just taste like Philadelphia straight of the tub with digestive biscuits as some cheesecake do, a definite recommendation on my side.

This is VERY RICH! I made it last night and just shared it with work this morning. Easy to make. I didn't use full fat cream cheese or cream so it didn't set as well I would have liked. Will make again as an occasion cake rather than a dessert and like the suggestions of serving with summer fruits to really lift it.

Great! I halved the recipe to make 5 individual ones. Very rich! I added some raspberries to help the sweetness!! Will do it again, maybe some variation on it!!!

Have made this twice now, fabulous, so easy and so nice. Second time I made two cheesecakes from same mix and froze one very successfully - defrosted okay and still tasted as good. Love this base as it doesnt go soggy like normal digestive one can.

Made this for the 4th time this week daughter requested it instead of a birthday cake! Always goes down well. It is very rich but not overly so. I sometimes serve some summer fruits or strawberries on the side.

This is a really lovely cheesecake. Slightly fiddly to make but well worth the effort.

This cheesecake was nothing short of amazing. It was a real winner at my dinner party. I made it as suggested and changed nothing other than putting milk choc maltessers on top but only as the white ones were harder to come by. It was really easy to make and tasted stunning and not to sickly. I will definately be making this one again on those special occassions.

This cheesecake is nothing short of amazing. I made it exactly as it said for a dinner party last night and everyone said how delicious it was. Not to sickly either and easy to make. I will definately be bringing this one out at special occassions. Would recommend to anyone else to have a go.

Fabulous cheesecake served at Boxing Day Tea - husband overdid it and had seconds! I made it some weeks in advance - wrapped the whole thing in a freezer bag. Defrosted perfectly. All my grand-daughter had to do was decorate with chocolate stars. PERFECT!

Loved it? Agreed with the other people that it is very rich but if you only have a small portion then it is great. The whole family loved it and some even had seconds! My dad has been begging me to make it again so this will def be going in my recipe book.

Loved this for pudding on Christmas Day

I made this for a Boxing Day family party but modified it slightly.
Instead of using cream I used more cheese and instead of adding sugar just added more chocolate.
This helps it set quicker and is less 'rich' AKA sickly.

I also baked the base for about 10 minutes to keep it crumbly and light.

Always goes down a storm and I'm lucky if I get a piece before everyone's eaten it.

Made this yesterday, It was delicious. I didn't think it was too sickly at all. Went down very well with everyone. Definitely recommend.
