Mocha Cheesecake

 

This is such an easy, delicious cheesecake. I made it at school in a catering lesson, excuse the bad presentation because it did travel a mile home before ending up on a plate!

You will need:

200g chocolate Bourbons

100g butter (melted)

275g mascapone cheese

175ml double cream

50g caster sugar

2 teaspoons espresso powder dissolved in a tablespoon boiling water

  1. Crush the biscuits in a polythene bag by bashing with a rolling pin. Alternatively, use a blender.
  2. Stir in the butter and then press the mixture into a flan dish or sponge tin.
  3. Whip the cream until thick. Beat the mascapone until soft. Stir the whipped cream into the cheese and gently stir. Fold in the espresso and sugar.
  4. Spread the mixture over the crumb base and then chill before serving.
