Ingredients

  • 75g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
  • 250g HobNobs biscuits
  • 250g vanilla fudge
  • 300g mascarpone
  • 400ml double cream, softly whipped
  • 250g strawberries, quartered
  • 2 tsp icing sugar

Method

  1. Lightly butter a 23cm springform cake tin. Pulse the biscuits to crumbs in a food processor. Add the melted butter and pulse until combined and clumped together. Tip into the base of the tin and press down evenly. Chill.
  2. Meanwhile, put 200g of the fudge in a large bowl and melt in a microwave for 1 minute on High, until it forms a soft paste (or alternatively melt in a pan over a very low heat). Cool slightly. Beat the mascarpone in a bowl with a wooden spoon until soft, add to the melted fudge and mix until combined. Gently fold in the whipped cream.
  3. Chop the remaining fudge into small chunks and stir into the filling. Spoon over the chilled biscuit base, smoothing the top. Cover and chill for 6 hours or overnight – the fudge will set the cheesecake.
  4. Meanwhile, put the strawberries in a bowl and toss with the icing sugar. Set aside to macerate for 20 minutes.
  5. Once the cheesecake is set, run a knife all around to loosen and remove the springform collar. Slide onto a serving plate and spoon over the strawberries to serve.

  1. Made this a couple of months ago and used dark chocolate cocoa powder in with the biscuit base. Also added blueberries into the cheesecake mixture- was a total delight! Brilliant recipe
