In our family we are not big fan of cheesecake, but still I wanted to try something on my own. After all my hesitation I decided to make this for a very small portion, surprisingly it was a big hit in our family and now I'll start exploring various cheesecakes with different flavours.
This is no bake cheesecake and doesn't need much time to set, i can also say this as a bit low fat too. This is best when you have a sudden unplanned party. Layers of buttery biscuit crumbs mixed with cream and chocolate is just melt in your mouth. Perfect way to finish off a meal.
Wholewheat digestive biscuits or marie biscuits or any plain biscuits- 12
White Chocolate- 200 g
Low fat cream cheese- 200 g
Low fat creme frische- 100 g
Dark Chocolate- 100 g
Melted Butter- 3 tbsp
Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
Few wafer biscuits and fresh fruits to serve
I have used here the chef's ring to make a mini cheesecake version, you can also use a 18 cm loose bottom cake tin.
Put the biscuits in a plastic bag, cover it and break the biscuits roughly with a rolling pan. Put the biscuit crumbs in a large bowl and add the melted to coat all the biscuits. Press the biscuits inside the tin, cover it allow it to refrigerate for 1 hour.
Beat together the cream cheese, creme frische and vanilla extract in a large bowl with a bubble whisk. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave or in a bowl sitting over a pan of simmering water. When the chocolate is completely melted, take it off from heat and allow it cool down.
One important thing while melting the chocolate, you have to keep stirring continuously.
Add the cooled and melted chocolate to the cheese mixture and stir well. Spoon the cheese mixture over the biscuit base and level the surface. At this stage you can cover it and let it sit in the fridge till your guest arrive.
Just before serving melt the dark chocolate and pour it on top of the cheese mixture.
I just made a mistake , after adding the melted chocolate on top, I just left it to sit in the fridge, so it hardened and when you try to remove the mould, the top surface breaks. To avoid this breakage, pour the chocolate at the end before serving.
Serve the cheesecake with some fresh fruits and wafers.
