Ingredients

  • Cream cheese (full fat, not spreadable or lite) - 500 g
  • Vanilla wine biscuits - 150 g
  • Salted butter, melted - 80 g
  • Caster sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Milk chocolate, roughly broken into pieces - 200 g
  • Thickened cream - 1/2 cup
  • Dark chocolate shavings, to serve
  • Fresh berries, to serve

Method

  1. Take the cream cheese out of the fridge to come to temperature.

  2. Grease a 20cm springform pan.

  3. Blitz biscuits in a food processor until they look like fine breadcrumbs. Add melted butter. Process again for a further 10 seconds to combine.

  4. Firmly press the crumb into the greased pan with the back of a dessert spoon. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  5. While the base is chilling, make the filling. Place the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

  6. Melt the milk chocolate by filling a pot with 5cm of boiling water and put on a medium heat to come to the boil. Place a slightly smaller heatproof bowl over the pot and place the chocolate inside, mix well while the chocolate melts.

  7. Take off the heat once the chocolate has melted and add to the cream cheese mixture, along with the thickened cream. Mix well with the electric mixer until just combined.

  8. Spoon over the crumb base and smooth the top with a spatula or pallet knife. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.

  9. Before serving, top with dark chocolate shavings, and fresh berries.

Tip: In place of thickened cream, you can whip runny cream until thick and cloudy but not too firm.
