  • 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.

Love this, always two from the mix and freeze one for later, lovely! Never add the sugar to white choc, already sweet enough for me. Firm fav alongside hazelnut cheesecake with nutella. Yummy

Just made this, and i must say, it really is easy to make, and gorgous, certainly will be one of my favorites, also, i couldnt find any white maltesers, so used white areo bubbles along with normal maltesers on the top and looked lovely, and worked well.

This was the first thing I have ever baked by myself and safe to say it was very interesting in doing so! The cheesecake itself is very nice however I find it is to sweet for my palette.

Made this cheesecake many times. I don't put any of the sugar in as I think the chocolate makes it sweet enough. Everyone who tries it absolutely loves it and it's really quick and easy to make. Definitely five stars!

Absolutely gorgeous! I made this for a group of girlfriends who came for dinner and they all loved it. Will definately be making this again!

Amazing recipe! As an alternative I made the milk chocolate layer without the malt but added honeycomb pieces. It worked really well too.
