Instructions

  • Base

    Place the chocolate in a thin-sided bowl and suspend over a gently simmering bain-marie, ensuring that the bowl does not touch the water. Melt the chocolate and allow to cool a little. Finely crush the biscuits in a plastic bag using a rolling pin or blitz them in a food processor, mix with the butter and half of the chocolate. Spread the mixture over the bottom of the prepared cake tin and press down firmly with the base of a glass.
  • Cream cheese mixture

    Using the whisk on a hand mixer, combine the cream cheese, sugar, eggs and cornflour. Stir in the chocolate chunks and remaining melted chocolate and spread over the biscuit base.
  • Bake

    For approx. 40 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, remove the tin frame, slide the cheesecake onto a cooling rack and leave to cool. Top with the chocolate.
  • Shelf life:

    Cover the cheesecake and keep in the fridge for approx. 2 days.
