No-bake chocolate cheesecake

    2 hours 20 mins

    This recipe was passed down to me from my mother. It produces a rich, chocolatey cheesecake perfect for all cheesecake and chocolate lovers alike! Taste a little to ensure that the right amount of chocolate-ness has been reached. If you like cheesecakes a little more chocolatey then you may need to add a little more cocoa powder/water mix to taste.

    Used different ingredients. i used chocolate chip cookies instead of digestives, keeps the chocolate theme going all the way thru the cheesecake. chocolate fiend or what?!!  -  16 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    I have been messing around with this recipe and am now at the point where I do the following: Crush 12 lotus carmelised biscuits and add 30g of melted butter. Divide between 4 x 200ml glasses and pack down with the end of a rolling pin. Whip 250ml of cream, add 200g of philadelphia cream cheese, 4 tablespoons of icing sugar and 150g of 70-80% dark chocolate. Put the chocolate mix into a piping bag and pipe into the glasses on top of the biscuit. Leave in the fridge to set. Take out a while before eating to allow it to warm up and you can appreciate the delicious chocolatey flavour more Thanks so much for sharing this recipe... it is just so damned good!  -  09 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Something else. I added cocoa powder and a little extra suger to the biscuit base to make the base chocolate flavoured as well.  -  30 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
