Cherry Layered Cheesecake ‘lighthouse’ with Bahlsen white chocolate choco biscuit ice cream
45 minutes Serves 10
Chef’s comments Cherry is a great flavour and we’ve had a bit of fun changing the shape of the cheesecake – still a simple one to make Ingredients:
For the cheesecake
● Bahlsen dark chocolate biscuits
● 100g butter
● 500g soft cream cheese
● 175g icing sugar
● 175g créme fraîche
● 3 gelatine leaves
● 100g blitzed cherries (purée)
● 200g white chocolate (melted)
● 500ml whipping cream
For the ice cream
● Bahlsen white chocolate biscuits
● 10 vanilla ice cream scoops
For the garnish
● Bahlsen chocolate orange biscuits
● 10g white chocolate
● 1 tbsp mango purée
● 10 cherries
Soak the gelatine in cold water, squeeze out excess moisture before dissolving into the melted white chocolate. Mix together the cream cheese, whip the cream and fold into mixture. Divide the cheesecake mix into 2, fold the blitzed cherries into half. Blitz the dark chocolate biscuits with melted butter. Place on a lined baking tray and cut 10 circles out. This will form the bases for the cheesecakes. Using the individual Christmas pudding moulds, line them with cling film. Layer the white chocolate cheesecake followed by the cherry cheesecake, repeat until almost full. Top with the biscuit circles, leave to set. Blitz orange biscuit Bahlsen.
