I am no big baker or dessert maker but when there is a special occasion (like a colleague turning 50) I will make an exception and MY GOD was this white chocolate cheesecake worth the effort!

Possibly the best cheesecake I have EVER had and actually surprisingly easy to make plus it feeds enough for a dinner party or an office birthday.

Highly recommended!

(Makes enough for 8 people)
  • 100g crème fraiche
  • 275g Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 500ml double cream
  • 260g white chocolate buttons
  • 250g McVities digestive biscuits
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • White chocolate bar, grated into large curls
  • Packet of white chocolate lenders

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheeses together until soft. 
  • In a second mixing bowl, semi whip the double cream and then melt the chocolate over a bain-marie until blood temperature (37*). 
  • Fold the chocolate into the cream cheese mix, and then fold in the semi whipped cream.
  • Melt the unsalted butter in a pan. crush the biscuits by bashing them in a bag with a rolling pin, being careful to keep the pieces of biscuit reasonable large and then stir them into the butter until coated all over.
  • Assemble the cheesecake by spreading the biscuit base into the bottom of a serving dish, then add the cheesecake mix topped with white chocolate shavings and the lindor balls.
  • Leave to set in the fridge overnight.
