  • 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.

This was fantastic... i am now making it again for another dinner party, it's great as you can make it the previous day, guests won't be taking any of this one home it's so good and easy too.

Absolutely loved this! I added honeycomb to the chocolate layer too and that worked really well. I would definitely recommend this x

I made this a few weeks back and had to leave half of my serving as I thought it was too rich, tried it the next day after it had set in the fridge overnight and wow, it was like a baked cheesecake but with absolutely no cooking needed! Had a full serving to myself and didn't find it too rich at all!
The next time I make this, I may make a thicker base as I found the base was fairly thin and lets face it, the base is the most delicious part of a cheesecake!
It could also be used as a normal cheesecake, take the malted powder out and use digestives. I may try this alternative sometime.
Overall, a fantastic chocolate cheesecake!!

I felt the same with the base. Will you double the ingredients for the base if you make again?

This was an amazing cheesecake..I added crushed maltesers to the white chocolate mix, delicious! The kids think I'm amazing. Very filling though. Going to try it next time with light ingredients. Hey..malt cheesecake...the lighter way to enjoy cheesecake!!! ;)

I made this today and totally forgot about the sugar in the base and in the milk chocolate part, but I have to say I'm glad I did because it tasted amazing without the sugar and by some of the other comments about the sweetness. I didnt add the cream cheese to the white chocolate part as I was concerned about it being too 'cheesey' so I just added the melted white chocolate to whipped cream and that set perfectly. I will def be making this again and will try to remember my tweaks!

Gorgeous Recipe!! I made this over Christmas and received so many compliments on it - i didn't mention how easy it was!
Very very rich, maybe a bit too much for me but will def pass onto others and make again.

This was so popular that 3 of my guests wanted the recipe then served it themselves on other occasions. Easy to do but a little goes a long way. Mine served 18 people - you only need a sliver but it is delicious.

This was a fairly simple and quick cheesecake to make however i found it does use quite a lot of ingredients which could be costly. I made it for a dinner party and it had only begun to set after about 6hrs and it had also been in the freezer for about 40min. I would definitely recommend chilling this overnight to get the best texture. Looks absolutely great in the middle of the table and the malteasers to really finish it off. Everyone who had some loved it and asked for the recipe but to my taste it was very rich and creamy but it's fresh tasting and finishing off a meal nicely. Will probably be making again as it's so easy and quick and looks fantastic.

Made this loads of times now, it is so easy yet impressive, very rich so don't need huge portions but truly lovely.

I prepared this for friends a few days ago. It is really really easy to prepare (took me 20 minutes), but the end result was astounding. Creamy, malty, chocolatey goodness. It is rather rich, so go slow with the portions. I will certainly prepare this fab cheesecake again!

This is a really tasty cheesecake and very easy to make. It's looks lovely too. But it is very rich and sits heavy on a tummy. So if you are planning to make it as part of a meal, leave a layer out. I would make this again for a special occasion as long as I have a large number of people to feed. It does not freeze well as I found out recently. We had to throw away the frozen portions

Yes, it is incredibly rich and yes, the calorie count is huge but just enjoy! I followed the recipe exactly and the result was as just as pictured. One small tip do make sure you really press the layers of milk and white chocolate into the side of the tin to ensure neat edges when the tin is removed. This was chilled overnight, covered loosely with foil and lasted well for 2 days (being kept in the fridge when not been eaten).

I made this cheese cake yesterday for a dinner party today. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect, it set so well and looked very professional! It was rich but I served very thin slices, will definitely be making this again!

Fabulous recipe, really easy to make but looked very impressive. Very rich , even for my taste, you only need a small slice! Will definately be making this one again.

Does anyone know if you can freeze this?

I made this for a large family gathering and it went down very well. I found it a bit rich and rather sweet, but Christmas is all about over indulging! The hardest part was preparing the tins, and over all it took about 20 minutes to do, so was definetely a quick pudding that looks great on the table.
