Method

  1. Brush a 20 x 30cm baking tin with a little oil, then line well with two layers of cling film, leaving overhang for lifting out – or use a tin with a loose bottom. Put the biscuits into a food processor and whizz to crumbs, then tip in the melted butter and mix again. Press the crumbs firmly into the base of the prepared tin, then chill while you make the filling.

  2. Put the cream and chocolate in a small pan. Melt very gently, stirring, until no lumps of chocolate remain. Clean out the food processor and add the raspberries and creamy chocolate mixture. Whizz together until it can’t get any smoother, then rub through a sieve to get rid of the raspberry seeds.

  3. Put the cream cheese into a mixing bowl with the sugar and the sieved raspberry mixture. Beat with an electric whisk until smooth.

  4. Let the ice cream soften in a big bowl, but not melt, then fold in the cream cheese mixture a little at a time until well mixed and no ice-cream lumps are visible. Scrape into the prepared tin and level the top. Cover with cling film, not letting it touch the top of the cheesecake, then freeze at least overnight or up to 3 months before serving.

  5. To serve, remove the covering cling film, lift out the cheesecake, or slide out if in a loose-bottomed tin. Remove any remaining cling film. Decorate the top with fresh raspberries and drizzle with a little more melted white chocolate.

I consider myself quite an accomplished cook and made this last minute for a dinner party. Complete disaster. It was frozen solid and had ice crystals and then melted so rapidly that we had a type of soup. The flavours werent very strong either. Wont make it again

I think the dirty bowls are worth it as the cheesecake lasts for ages. I used strawberries instead of raspberries, and had to defrost the dessert hours before serving it or it goes rock hard. Everyone loved this - even my picky sister and calorie-conscious mother.

Agree, i think i used five bowls. But also had to wash some midway thru as the content kept growing for everytime. Still waiting to serve so not sure how it will taste, but i added some extra rasberry jam just to make sure that the berry- flavor came thru all the chocolate, cream cheese and cream. But I used 35 - 40 mins, and had none of the electrical devices, so you can do it in almost a third of the time. Otherwise, great recipe!

Like previous question, do you serve it frozen or do you thaw it out first.

This may be a dumb question, but do I serve it frozen or do I defrost it? And if I defrost it how long for?

Hi there, we can see this one's caused a bit of confusion. Yes, it is meant to be served frozen. Enjoy!

Yes, we've created a frozen version here. Simply take it out the freezer, add any decorations you might like and serve.
