About this recipe: This recipe was passed down to me from my mum. It produces a rich, chocolaty cheesecake perfect for all cheesecake and chocolate lovers alike! Taste a little to ensure that the right amount of chocolate-ness has been reached. If you like cheesecakes a little more chocolaty then you may need to add a little more cocoa powder/water mix to taste.
I have been messing around with this recipe and am now at the point where I do the following: Crush 12 lotus carmelised biscuits and add 30g of melted butter. Divide between 4 x 200ml glasses and pack down with the end of a rolling pin. Whip 250ml of cream, add 200g of philadelphia cream cheese, 4 tablespoons of icing sugar and 150g of 70-80% dark chocolate. Put the chocolate mix into a piping bag and pipe into the glasses on top of the biscuit. Leave in the fridge to set. Take out a while before eating to allow it to warm up and you can appreciate the delicious chocolatey flavour more Thanks so much for sharing this recipe... it is just so damned good! - 09 Jul 2012
