  • 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.

Easy to make and tastes wonderful!! Family loved it!! You only need a small slice as it is very rich!

Made this a few times now and kept to the recipe. It's a winner every time with family and visitors, old and young. It is very rich but that hasn't put anybody off. So easy to make I feel like am cheating!!

Beautiful cheesecake. Have made a few times now but I use Philadelphia light so its not so rich!

Made this for dessert for dinner party and was well impressed. Is extremely heavy though. Cut into VERY small pieces and let people have seconds if they want, but I guarantee they won't be able to. Absolutely gorgeous though. Very easy and looks and tastes impressive.

Made this for friends who came to dinner and we all loved it! Yes, very rich, but an indulgent special treat and easy to make. The whole lot disappeared in no time!!

This was easy to make and a real hit with family and friends (both kids and adults)

Quite nice.

This cake has 8000 calories?!?! Uh oh... there weren't 10 of us to eat it, so some people might have got more than the 800 calories for one serving...

With hindsight, I might have made a slightly less indulgent cake, lovely as this was.

I made this for christmas eve. It was very easy to make but far too rich. also, i couldn't find white chocolate maltesers anywhere which was annoying, so i used milky bar white moments. Would have to change the recipe a little so that it's not so rich if i made it again!

Very tasty cheesecake, a crowd pleaser for sure. Have made this several times in the last month and each time its gone down a storm.

A definite crowd-pleaser and great for a girls night in!! Couldn't find white maltesers but went down a treat all the same!

If you like very rich cheesecakes then this is the business - but for me, just a bit too heavy. I think if I did it again I would cut very thin slices and add something on the plate to freshen it up. Perhaps a swirl of chocolate sauce, some raspberries and thin slices of tropical fruit or sorbet etc.

The best ever thing created. Made it before with my mother and it turned out the best. Everyone loved it, so therefore I'm making it tomorrow for her (mother's Day).
Thank you x

One of the best cheesecakes I've ever made (and I've made a lot!!). Was a bit hit at our Christmas party and going to make it again for a family get together at Easter.

If you like this taste try making the Malt Chocolate Ice-cream on this site-it's delicious!

Absolutely divine and so simple to make. Everyone enjoyed it, including neighbours who had to help us finish it! It's so rich and quite deep, so next time I'll halve the amounts for the cholcolate layers and keep the biscuit layer the same.

I had never made a cheescake before but made this one for my daughters 3rd birthday!!
was so easy to do and was delicious!!

Fabulous cheesecake, it was even too rich for me to have second helpings and I can usually manage everything! Will defiantely make again.

Made for sunday lunch and very popular with all. I didn't bother adding any sugar to the base and left the milk choclate layer for a couple of hours in the fridge before making and adding the white chocolate layer.
