Easter Chocolate Orange Cheesecake!
An easy and delicious no-bake Easter chocolate orange cheesecake with a biscuit base, chocolate orange cheesecake filling, and more!
Chocolate orange, Easter
Terry's chocolate orange
Full fat soft cream cheese
Terry's chocolate orange mini eggs
Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a small crumb or in a bag with the end of a rolling pin, add the melted butter, and mix until it is combined well.
Tip into a 8″/20cm deep springform tin and press down firmly.
Melt the chocolate orange until smooth. I do this in the microwave! Leave to cool for at least five minutes.
Mix together the full fat soft cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth.
Add the cooled metled chocolate and whisk again.
Finally, add the liquid double cream and whisk the mixture until thick. Alternatively, whisk the cream until thick and fold through the cream cheese mixture.
Spread the mixture onto the biscuit base, smooth over, cover, and chill in the fridge for 5-6 hours, or preferably overnight to set.
Whip together the double cream and icing sugar together until it is thick and you can pipe it.
Pipe the whipped cream onto the cheesecake, and top with some whole and crushed chocolate orange mini eggs - and some grated chocolate and sprinkles.
I recommend using a
8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin
in this recipe!
You could easily half the recipe used to make a smaller cheesecake in a 6" tin!
This recipe will last covered in the fridge for 3-4 days!
You can use milk chocolate and add 1tsp
in place of terry's chocolate orange, or use a different chocolate orange flavoured chocolate!
The colour of the terry's mini eggs will run once the cream and in the fridge so beware!
If you are wanting to make this but cannot find the mini eggs - just use terry's chocolate orange segments or anything else you fancy for decor.
