  • 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.

the best cheesecake I've ever made & tasted

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.

I made this on Christmas Eve and it was all gone by Christmas Day!!
Agree with the other comments that it is a very very rich cake and you only need a small portion!
Was so easy to make though that i think this will be a firm favourite!

Went down an absolute treat, was eaten up within two days between just three people! I've got no sweet tooth so I didn't have any but it was well liked and I received a lot of compliments. It was very very easy to make, a bit pricey for all of the ingredients but hey that's what Christmas is for!

My teenage daughter made this dessert for our Christmas Eve dinner. It was easy to prepare. Only small portions are needed as it is very rich and very sweet. We have quite a lot left over and I'm hoping that it will freeze well. If we make it again then we will halve the ingredients and use a smaller tin.

This was the first proper dessert I have ever made. It was easy and looked good too. If I made it again I would use a better milk chocolate as I used a cheap milk chocolate and I don't think the layers tasted distinct enough because of that.

Please, could anyone tell me when / if to bake this cake?

The recipe mentions a 10min cooking time which isn't mentioned again in the instructions... as this would be my first cheese cake to make/eat I've got absolutely no idea as to how this works...

Way to sweet and rich for me, but tasty none the less, husband and work colleagues loved it though. If I try this again I will have to do something about reducing the sugar content. So if you have a very sweet tooth this is the one for you.
