Ingredients of Terry's chocolate orange cheesecake
- It’s 300 g of Terry's chocolate orange – approx. 2 whole choc oranges (you could use dark for a slightly less sweet pud).
- It’s 350 g of digestive biscuits, finely crushed (the original recipe stated double choc cookies but that's a bit too much choc for me! Digestives every time).
- It’s 120 g of butter (melted).
- It’s 1 (240 g) of tub mascarpone.
- Prepare 1 (400 g) of tub Philadelphia cream cheese.
- Prepare 100 g of icing sugar (I reduced the original 150g as it seemed too sweet).
- Prepare 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
- Prepare 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
- It’s 300 ml of double cream – whisked until just forms stiff peaks.

Terry's chocolate orange cheesecake instructions
- Mix crushed biscuits with the melted butter in a large bowl until completely combined..
- Press into a greased 8 inch square tin (spring base if poss). Make sure you get it into all the nooks and crannies. Flatten and compress it to make sure it sets as a solid base for your cheesecake mix. Put this in the freezer whilst you make the orange filling..
- Melt the Terrys' chocolate orange pieces gradually in a bowl in the microwave – stir after a minute, then 2, then reduce to every 30 seconds until melted. Put to one side to cool a little..
- Spoon the mascarpone, cream cheese, vanilla essence,cocoa powder and sieved icing sugar into a large bowl and stir well until completely combined and smooth. Add the melted chocolate and stir well until thoroughly mixed..
- Finally, add the whisked cream gently, trying not to beat out the volume by using a figure of eight motion to mix..
- Once all the ingredients are combined (try not to eat it all at this stage!), spoon the mixture onto the cooled biscuit base and smooth it carefully so that it is flat and fills all corners..
- Place in the fridge and leave for several hours (overnight is best if you can wait that long!!).
- When ready to serve, decorate with mini chocolate orange segments (and possibly some cream..….too much maybe? Not for this family!).
