Ingredients

  • 100 g (1 stick) butter
  • 200 g (2 cups) crumbs digestive biscuits*
  • 250 g (1¼ cups) white chocolate**
  • 300 ml (1¼ cups) double (heavy) cream
  • 280 g (1¼ cups) full fat cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Start by lining a 20cm (7 inch) spring form cake tin. Line the base and sides with non-stick paper. This makes removing the cheesecake easier.
  • Melt the butter in a medium sized pan over a very low heat.
  • Using a food processor, blitz the biscuits until finely ground. Alternatively, place the biscuits in a food bag and crush with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs.
  • Stir the crumbs into the melted butter mixing well to ensure all the crumbs are thoroughly covered. Press the buttery crumbs into the tin. Chill.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water ensuring the bottom of the bowl does not come into contact with the water. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Lightly whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks.
  • Beat the vanilla extract into the cream cheese until smooth and shiny.
  • Beat the melted chocolate into the cream cheese then fold in the whipped cream.
  • Pour the cheesecake mixture over the biscuit base and smooth the top.
  • Chill for at least two hours and preferably overnight.

Notes

*Use graham crackers if you can’t get digestives.
**I use Milky Bar, but you can use white chocolate chips if measuring in cups.
