Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

A lot of my friends and family know that I love making (and eating!) cheesecakes. I have a staple recipe and love trying new flavours all the time (more recipes coming soon!). This year I decided to make Ashleigh a cheesecake for her birthday using her favourite chocolate – Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Although I couldn’t try any myself, the girls all loved it and said it tasted amazing despite the fact it hadn’t 100% set by the time they came to try it.

Made using a 24cm spring form cake tin. Serves 8-10

Ingredients:

  • 3 – 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2/3 of a 400g pack of digestives
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 400g tin of condensed milk – I think Carnation works best. I used a supermarket brand one this time and I think that’s why it didn’t set as well as previous cheesecakes I’ve made
  • 1 Terry’s Chocolate Orange

Method:

  1. Put the digestives in a sandwich bag and crush with a rolling pin
  2. Combine the melted butter and crushed digestives. If the mixture is too sticky/buttery, add more crushed digestives. Press into the base of a spring form cake tin,  then place in the fridge to chill
  3. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and condensed milk together using an electric whisk
  4. Grate two of the chocolate orange segments and set aside
  5. Break the rest of the chocolate orange segments into thirds and place into a bowl, then melt them over a small pan of boiling water – keep an eye of it to prevent the chocolate burning or the water bubbling over!
  6. Mix the melted chocolate into the cheesecake mix using the electric whisk again
  7. Add to the cheesecake base, then top with the grated chocolate
  8. Leave in the fridge to chill for 2 days
