No bake Mississippi mud pie cheesecake

    3 hours

    This is a cross between a Mississippi mud pie and a cheesecake. It's rich, gooey and always goes down well at parties or family gatherings.

    Serves: 8 

    • 50g butter or margarine
    • 160g digestive biscuits
    • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (optional)
    • 200g cream cheese
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 1 tablespoon Camp Coffee® strong coffee
    • 200ml whipping cream or double cream
    • 150g plain chocolate

    Prep:1hr  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:3hr 

    1. Melt the butter gently. Whilst melting, finely crush the digestive biscuits. Mix together; stir in cocoa powder, if using. Press firmly into flan or cake tin. Leave in fridge to chill whilst preparing topping.
    2. Beat the cream cheese and sugar together. Divide into two bowls.
    3. Add half of the cream cheese and sugar mix to the Camp Coffee and blend well. Pour over the biscuit base and put back into the fridge whilst preparing next step.
    4. Whip the cream (if using double cream, it will not form peaks but will thicken). Whilst whipping the cream, melt the chocolate. Allow chocolate to cool slightly, then mix together with the remaining half of the cream cheese mixture; blend well. Pour on top of coffee layer and refrigerate again.
    5. Should be set after one hour, but better to leave 2 hours or overnight. Enjoy!


    Add cocoa powder to the base mix if you want a darker, more bitter, dark chocolate taste to the biscuit base. Alternatively use Oreo® cookies instead of digestives for the same effect.

    This is a very easy recipe but the instruction to `pour` the chocolate mixture over the coffee layer is wildly optimistic! Mine ended up more like a ganache consistency and getting it to take the form of an even layer involved a series of incentives that surprised my children and the result was more marbled than I would have preferred. However, the cream top layer did a good job of hiding its imperfections and I'm sure the taste was unaffected.  -  21 Sep 2014
