Ingredients

  • 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
    White chocolate squares, stacked

  • 37g bag white Maltesers

Method

  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.

OMG, an amazing cheescake- I love sweet puddings, especially chocolate ones and I wouldn't change a thing- absolutely scrummy- and easy to make.

I made this for a friend's big birthday and received many compliments. I was shocked at the fat content so it is not surprising that it was so rich. The malt biscuit base was very nice. Despite being quite straight forward to make I'm not sure I'll make this again but if I do I'll just make one layer - probably white chocolate.

Just made this a few minutes ago as of typing this. For some reason I couldn't find white Matesers ANYWHERE! Oh well, it's still looking great. Can't wait to try the malty flavour!

Wow!! Some friends and I had this at a pub one day and fell in love. I got searching when I got home and found this recipe. I make it without the white layer, just a deep layer of the milk chocolate mixture. It's absolutely scrumptious and as it's also pretty rich a little slice is enough, so plenty for everyone. Fairly easy and quick to make too. I declare it a Winner!!

To die for - this really is easy and SO tasty! Full of calories so make sure to have enough people around to eat it - as we found out it's impossible to resist in the fridge.

Oh. My. Goodness. Very nice but extremely rich and very sweet even without the 5 tbsp extra sugar which, like other people, I left out. The suggested quantities would serve 15-20, especially if eaten after a main course. Easy to make, but looks and tastes like you've slaved over it for hours :-)

This cheesecake was delicious! So easy to make and it went down very well with everyone. I left out the extra sugar as it didn't need it, it was very rich and sweet anyway. A great recipe!
