Blogmas Day 21 – No-Bake Mini Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cheesecakes.

Guys this is my final festive bake and that makes me sad because well it’s a no-bake but this will not be my last bake on my blog, no no no! Due to the great response my bakes have got I have decided to make baking on my blog a regular thing on my blog in the New Year and I am already streaming with ideas which I’ll let you in on in my final post of the year. Let’s just say I’m excited! So shall we get to it!

Ingredients:

For the bases: 

  • 150 grams unsalted butter
  • 300 grams digestive biscuits or you can use hobnobs (which ever you prefer)

For the Cheesecakes:

  • 400 grams cream cheese
  • 300 ml double cream
  • 100 grams icing sugar
  • 300 grams Terry’s Chocolate Orange

For decorations:

  • A few spare Chocolate orange segments and a few of some chocolate shavings

Method:

Step One: To make your base – Melt your butter in a small pan over medium heat until fully melted, try not to burn it your first attempt. (make sure you have extra butter just in case and no I didn’t burn my first try, of course I did!)

Step Two: Pop your biscuits into a food processor and blitz them into small crumbs, or you can pop them into a food bag and bash the hell out of them with a rolling pin. Combine your breadcrumbs and butter until well mixed, tip this into your tin or glasses which is what I’ve used and press down firmly.

Step Three: To make your cream cheese filling – Melt your Chocolate orange in a bowl over some simmering water, stirring gently until it has fully melted. Once melted set aside to cool a little bit.

Step Four: Mix together your cream cheese and icing sugar until thick in one bowl and whip up your double cream in a separate bowl, once your double cream is whipped fold the double cream and cream cheese together.

Step Five: Now fold in your melted chocolate orange and whisk until thick.

Step Six: Pour your mixture on top of your biscuit base, smooth over the top, cover it and pop it into your fridge preferably over night but if you’re having a little party do this 4-6 hours before hand, so it’s set.

Step Seven: I decorated my medium cheesecake with a few left over segments that I used all my will power not to eat. On my mini cheesecakes I just grated a few left over bits of chocolate on top of each one.

Do you know those moments in life where you are just standing there and say to yourself, ‘Damn I made that’ well I had one of those moments with this cheesecake, I mean I’ve never made cheesecake before but this was so good, I shocked myself. And of course I made some mini cheesecakes which I topped with a little logo I made for myself, you know just in case I go into baking.

Do you love cheesecake if so what is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below. Also if you think I should make baking a permanent feature on my blog in the New Year I would really love some feedback on that! 

See you all tomorrow!

Peace & Love

    Chocolate and orange are my absolute favourites, a match made in heaven. And I love the look of these because there’s no baking. I truly admire your will power not to eat them before you photographed them though, I’m not sure I would have managed it 🙂 thank you for sharing such a yummy recipe X

I must make this soon. Also, I am loving your recipe posts! They’re great and I’m glad you’re going to continue them into the New Year.

    Hooray for baking on your blog becoming a regular feature – I am so pleased I’ll get to drool over your delicious creations even more in the future! Chocolate orange is one of my all time favourite types of chocolate so I will certainly be recreating the recipe! My sister, Mum and I are actually having cheesecake for our Christmas dinner dessert as none of us can stand Christmas pud haha!
