    Serves: 10 

    • 175g milk chocolate digestive biscuits
    • 75g unsalted butter
    • 400g Philadelphia® cream cheese
    • 100g icing sugar, sifted

    Prep:25min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr25min 

    1. Place the digestive biscuits in a large sealable freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin to form crumbs.
    2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Remove from the heat and add the biscuit crumbs, stirring to ensure they are coated in the butter.
    3. Spoon the crumb mixture into the base of a 23cm springform cake tin and compact with the back of a spoon.
    4. Combine the Philadelphia® cheese, icing sugar and vanilla bean paste in a bowl and beat together until well combined; set aside.
    5. Pour the double cream into a separate bowl and whisk until peaks form. Spoon the cream into the cream cheese mixture and fold gently together. Add the crushed Maltesers® and fold gently together.
    6. Spoon the mixture over the base in the tin, spread evenly and tap the tin lightly on the worktop to ensure there are no air pockets. Place in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours, or until set.
    7. Once set, release the sides of the springform cake tin and place the cheesecake on a serving plate, adding the whole Maltesers® on top to decorate. Serve and enjoy!

    Fabulous, went down very well with the family on Easter Day. Added little Lindor bunnies alongside Maltesers as decoration. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is that there didn't seem to be enough of the base to even cover the bottom of the tin. I ended up using a whole 300g packet of choc digestive and conscious that I was having to add loads of butter too. Result was a rock hard base! Very conscious that it is not for the diet conscious - lots of full fat soft cheese, cream, Maltesers, not to mention the icing sugar and the chocolate biscuit and butter base.  -  06 Apr 2018

    Easy to make, I added more biscuits and butter as I like a thick cheesecake base! Currently setting in the fridge  -  04 Feb 2018
