New Year's Malt Choc Cheesecake

Planning a New Year's Eve buffet or lunch on January 1st? This cheesecake would be great for either occasion. It's a malt chocolate cheesecake with a milk chocolate and malt (Horlicks!) layer and a white chocolate layer on top of a malted milk biscuit base...and what else could you decorate a malt cheesecake with, other than malteasers!!

A lovely easy cheescake which will certainly help you win friends and influence people!! ;-) It's not strictly a bake but it's definitely a winner.

  • 200g malted milk biscuits
  • 100g salted butter
  • 5 tbsp caster sugar
  • 600g full fat soft cheese
  • 300ml double cream
  • 300g white chocolate
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 2 tbsp malt or Horlicks powder
  • Bag of white malteasers
Bash the biscuits until they resemble crumbs... I blitzed mine in the food processor but there's always the traditional method of plastic bag and rolling pin if you wish to take out some aggression! Melt the butter in a pan and then add 2tbsp of sugar and the biscuit crumbs and mix before pressing the mixture in to a 23cm loose bottom or springform tin and chilling.
Take two bowls and divide the cream cheese and the cream between the two. Add the Horlicks, milk chocolate and remaining sugar to one and the white chocolate to the other, mix well, it may be best to do this with an electric whisk.
Spread the milk chocolate mix over the biscuit base in an even layer before adding the white chocolate mix on top. Gently smooth the white chocolate layer, making sure you push it right to the edges of the tin so there are no gaps between the layers. Finally, decorate with Malteasers.


  1. This looks amazing, I seriously want a slice! If I hadn't already bought loads of apples for a caramelised apple tart I would have made this for new years dinner.

  2. This must be the 5th cheesecake I've seen for new years - clearly the dessert of choice. I love malt and chocolate so will definitely give this a go. Happy New Year 2012! Look forward to reading more of your blog next year.

  3. Oh wow, that sounds utterly delicious. I have a few days off next week one of which will be spent making your cheesecake I think!

  4. Like you, I'm an ardent baker going into cake deco as well and I'm a collector for any types of cook books with wonderful illustrations. You have good collection of recipes in your blog..shall follow your posts from now on.

  5. Jo - maybe another time. The caramelised apple tart sounds delicious though, how did it go?
