Extravagant White Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

I've only made cheesecake once before and that was a lemon and blueberry flavour years ago which don't get me wrong was delicious but it didn't have that proper creamy texture that you want from a cheesecake. Since then I've made many cakes, some firm favourites which still seem to be popular are my school sponge cake and Easter chocolate cake and I've also gone a little crazy with brownies sharing everything from Bourbon Biscuit to After Eights and many more in between. A baker who seems to be a pro at pretty much everything is Jane from Jane's Patisserie on Instagram and it was her that inspired me to give cheesecake another go. She has many recipes for this popular dessert on her website but the one that stood out to me was the Milkybar cheesecake. Who doesn't love white chocolate? I changed a few little things when making my own white chocolate cheesecake & I didn't use strictly Milkybar throughout so I thought I'd share my version, though really it is very similar to hers and I wanted to give credit. Anyway, let's get started!

Ingredients: Base
300g digestives
150g butter or baking spread

Ingredients: Cheesecake filling
300g Milkybar chocolate
500g cream cheese
75g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
270ml double cream

Ingredients: Decoration
150ml double cream
2 tbsp icing sugar
50g white chocolate melted
White chocolate buttons

1. The first thing you want to do is make your base. To do this, blitz up your digestive biscuits until they're mainly crumbs. You could do this in a food processor or just in a bowl or sandwich bag, smashing with a rolling pin
2. Melt your butter/spread and mix into your broken up biscuits
3. Press the mixture down into a Springform cake tin. Leave to harden in the fridge or freezer whilst you make your filling
4. For your filling, melt your 300g of Milkybar either in the microwave or in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water. When melted, set aside to cool slightly
5. Add your cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla to a bowl and whisk until smooth
6. Add your melted Milkybar to this and stir until it's all combined
7. Add in your double cream and whisk until the mixture has thickened 
8. Pour your mixture over the digestive base, as evenly as possible and leave to set overnight if possible, though 6-7 hours should be fine
9. When your cheesecake has set, preferably the next day, you can remove from the tin and decorate. For this, just melt 50g of white chocolate and drizzle over the top of the cheesecake
10. Next, whisk your remaining double cream and icing sugar until thick and transfer to a piping bag. Pipe swirls around the edge of the cheesecake then top with your white chocolate buttons!

Whilst like any cheesecake would, this requires some time and effort, but it's absolutely worth it. It is uber sweet because of the Milkybar but just such a delicious flavour. I found cutting this into smaller slices was perfect meaning really the whole thing could serve about 16 people but of course you could use smaller tins or ramekins to make mini cheesecakes instead. This will last 3-4 days too so you have plenty of time to enjoy it!

Oh wow that looks so tasty! Like you said, I bet it would be quite sweet with white chocolate. I had a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake a few weeks ago and it was great!

I'm literally drooling! Milky Bar used to be my favourite chocolate before I went vegan and cheesecake was one of my favourite desserts. If we went back in time 5 years this would have been my idea of heaven. It looks incredible! x

Tiffany Timms said...

Ooh I really want to try making a raspberry cheesecake, something to offset the sweetness from the white chocolate xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Haha good idea! There was far too much for just us two xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Ah I love Milkybar, so fun to bake with xx

Tiffany Timms said...

Oh no that's so annoying! It's only recently I've been able to get flour which was annoying so hopefully things will start coming in regularly again soon! xx
