We recently made a chocolate orange cheesecake and it was delicious. We were inspired by our love of chocolate orange and this did not fail to disappoint. It is a very rich cheesecake, but a small slice served with thick double cream is delicious.


15 digestive biscuits 
50 g butter 
2 tablespoons of Cocoa powder

For the filling:
250 g mascarpone cheese 
200 g cream cheese 
1 chocolate orange
3 oz caster sugar 

To serve:
200 ml thick double cream


Crush the digestive biscuits to form fine crumbs. Melt the butter and add to the biscuit crumbs along with the cocoa powder.

Place the mixture into a cake tin and push down firmly with the back of a spoon.  Place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.

Softly melt the chocolate orange in a bowl over a saucepan of water.  Place the mascarpone cheese, cream cheese and sugar into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.  Mix the chocolate into the cheesecake mix. 

Pour the cheesecake mix onto the base and place in fridge for at least 4 hours to set, ideally leave overnight.
