I recently made this delicious Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake and it was so delicious, I thought I’d share the recipe with you. If you don’t like orange flavoured chocolate, you could always substitute this for a different type of chocolate; maybe aero mint or good old classic milk chocolate like Cadbury’s.
This recipe is ideal for special occasions or for dinner parties; it can easily be made in advance and stored in the fridge for a day or two. Plus, there’s no need to bake it in the oven!
150g plain digestive biscuits
2 packs of cream cheese
180ml double cream
75g icing sugar
2 x Terry’s Chocolate Orange Milk, 175 g (reserve one for decoration)
100g Dark Chocolate
1 shot of Cointreau or other orange liqueur
- Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds
- Crush the digestive biscuits in a bag, using a rolling-pin to a fine, crumb like texture
- Mix together the butter and digestive crumbs
- Press this into the bottom of an 8 inch cake tin (with a removable bottom) and put in the fridge to set
- Melt the Terry’s Chocolate Orange in a bowl over a pan of simmering water with the dark chocolate
- Let the chocolate cool down for 10 minutes (I tend to stick it in the freezer but don’t forget it’s there!)
- Using an electric whisk, mix together the cream cheese, double cream, icing sugar, chocolate and Cointreau until well mixed and thickened.
- Pour the mix on top of the biscuit base and leave to set in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours (preferably overnight)
- When the cheesecake has set, remove the sides of the cake tin (you can do this by putting the cheesecake on top of an upside bowl and carefully sliding the sides of the tin down
- Break up the remaining Terry’s Chocolate Orange into segments and arrange on top of the cheesecake.
- Pop the cheesecake in the fridge until you’re ready to serve
Let me know if you make this, and enjoy!
