  • 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 has become my go-to dessert whenever I'm stuck - it's quick, easy to make and delicious, always goes down a treat and looks so effective. I've made individual ones in silicone moulds, which also look great, and I often decorate with raspberries or blueberries instead of maltesers.

This is an amazing cheesecake. I love cheesecake, make a different one every time, but this is up there with the best, very easy to make. I recommend this recipe to you

I've just made this for the second time.... best cheesecake I've ever made! (not that I've made that many...) But I change quite a lot of things! Firstly, I use hobnobs in the base. Secondly, I use 200g white chocolate plus 100g smooth peanut butter in the white layer- it therefore becomes a chocolate/peanut butter cheesecake! And THEN I put a thin layer of bananas between the white and dark layers! AND this time I put 100g dark chocolate and 100g milk chocolate in the dark mix as I felt last time it was a bit sickly. All in all, amazing! VERY rich and filling though, most normal people can only tolerate a very small slice.... I am not normal when it comes to chocolate cheesecake so I had a big slice!

My new favourite cheesecake! I've made it a few times now with some minor alterations: I tend not to bother with the sugar and reduce the quantities of butter and cream to 85g and 150/200ml respectively, just to make it marginally less evil - I increase the milk chocolate to 250g though, because what the heck... Delicious!

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.

Delicious, very impressive looking and so easy to do. Made this twice now and had lots of compliments. Great for a really stunning dessert.
