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.

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.

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.

This is the easiest cheesecake I have ever made and it is so delicious. Rather on the large side so better for big gatherings but next time I shall split the quantities into two smaller tins and freeze one. Beware it you are trying to loose weight!!

I made this at Christmas - it was enjoyed by everyone - very rich - I just served small slices and only 1 or 2 managed seconds!

This is a sublimely greedy cheesecake. You can substitute the Philadelphia cream cheese for the light version and it makes very little difference to the overall taste because the taste is coming from the cholocate. I had high quality chocolate so it tasted amazing. Another note - I just used McVities digetive biscuits and the butter for the base and omitted the malt, and again it was still amazing!

Made this for Christmas Celebrations. Very easy to make but too rich for my taste and family's liking. Can't beat the New York recipe both regular and ultimate

Really disappointed. Made it for Christmas day. It was not cheap to make and was so heavy and rich that it did not gone down very well at all.

Made for a dinner party.Brilliant, best thing since I can't make white choc cheesecake anymore without Lindt chocolate. I used hobnob type biscuits for the base and didn't add sugar. Instead of using horlicks I used good cocoa powder and didn't add sugar to the milk choc mix either. Fabulous but I'm now struggling as to what to make for my husbands birthday tomorrow to follow up on this

I did this for New Years Eve party (sorry my 12 year old daughter did) and it went down very well. All the kids demolished it but with all the other food & drink some adults found it a little heavy. I managed a small slice, of course!

Made this for Christmas dessert, very easy to make but looked great and the cheesecake lovers in my family loved it. Is very rich and sweet and only need a small portion. Will definitely make again.
