Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake

With it being Mother's Day last Sunday my Mum and Mother in Law were coming for dinner and I thought it would be nice to use the luxurious chocolate covered raspberries, that I had been sent, in a dessert.

In hindsight I should have made this first thing in the morning, but I was enjoying the lazy morning that Mother's Day brings with it a little too much. I then took Jack to football, which meant that when I did get around to making it there wasn't really enough time to allow it to set fully, which is why it's a bit messy around the edges (that's my excuse anyway...nothing to do with the pink fizz that I'd been drinking before I removed the flan dish).

Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake

Base
300g chocolate Bourbon biscuits, crushed
50g butter, melted

Filling
284ml Double Cream
1/2 can of Condensed Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
400g Full Fat Cream Cheese
350g raspberries

Topping
75g Dark chocolate
100ml Double Cream

  • Make the base by mixing the crushed biscuits & melted butter together until combined
  • Cover the base of a loose bottomed flan dish with the biscuits & press down firmly all over
  • Refrigerate the base for around 20 minutes
  • Whisk the double cream, condensed milk & vanilla extract together until thick & forming peaks
  • Mix the cream cheese until smooth and then beat in the cream mixture a little at a time until all combined
  • Stir the raspberries in gently
  • Pour onto the biscuit base, smooth over and refrigerate until set (around 3-4 hours)
  • For the topping, melt the chocolate in the microwave on short bursts until melted
  • Stir in the double cream quickly, and beat well
  • Immediately pour over the cheesecake and smooth over
  • If your cheesecake is very cold the chocolate topping will set straight away
  • Decorate as desired - I used The East India Company chocolate covered raspberries.
