In case you didn’t indulge yourself enough over the long weekend, let me happily introduce you to Chocolate Berry Cheesecake Slice. Four little words that sound (and taste) great on their own, but amazing when you say (and eat) them all together.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this Tuesday treat. I probably don’t need to mention that despite the berries, this recipe doesn’t really fit into the healthy-eating category..
250g plain chocolate biscuits
100g unsalted butter
500g Philadelphia cream cheese
1/3 cup caster sugar
150g frozen berries
100g Cadbury milk chocolate, grated
Finely process the chocolate biscuits. While the biscuits are in the food processor, grease and line a 17cm x 27cm slice pan.
Add the butter to the biscuit mix, then press the mixture over the base of the slice pan. Cool in the fridge for 20 minutes, and preheat your oven to 170 degrees.
Beat the cream cheese until smooth, then gradually add in sugar. Let the mix thicken before adding the eggs (one at a time).
Remove the chocolate base from the fridge, and spoon a thin layer of the cheese mixture over the top of the base.
Add chocolate and raspberries, before spooning the rest of the cheese mixture on top.
The slice will need about 45 minutes in the oven. The agonising part is waiting for it to cool until room temperature, THEN placing it in the fridge to chill. I actually left mine in the fridge overnight.
Slice and serve! In the unlikely event of leftovers, it’s best to keep this slice in the fridge. Enjoy!
