Which could you live without cheese or chocolate? It’s a hard question and one that I’d hate to ever have to answer: they’re my two favourite things. Luckily I’ve found you a get out of jail free card if anyone ever asks you this: Philadelphia Chocolate Block. Essentially this is a chocolate version of Philly cream cheese.
I got sent some to try out and as tempting as it was just to eat the block there was also a lot of baking potential. Essentially any dessert you make with Philadelphia Cream Cheese you can now make with the Chocolate Block without having to melt and add chocolate! For a dessert that can be made in a flash I came up with this no bake chocolate cheese cake recipe. Just to make it even easier to eat and prettier to look at serve it in individual jars. As a hoarder of leftover jars so I’m always pleased for an excuse to use my collection.
- 200g chocolate biscuit (I used chocolate ripple biscuts)
- 3 tbs butter
- 1 tbs brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 x 250g block PHILADELPHIA Chocolate Block
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 100g dark good quality chocolate
- 1. Wrap biscuits in a tea towel and hit with a rolling pin until they form rough crumbs. Or (slightly less aggressively) use a food processor to turn the biscuits into crumbs.
- 2. Melt the butter and mix the sugar, cinnamon and mashed biscuits together in a bowl until well combined. Set aside.
- 3. For the cheesecake filling use an electric mixer to beat the PHILADELPHIA Chocolate Block until smooth. Beat in the condensed milk a little at a time, scraping the bowl as necessary.
- 4. Pour the crumb mixture evenly between the six glass jars and press down into the base. Then distribute the cheesecake mixture on top.
- 5. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- 6. When ready to serve use a peeler to create some chocolate shavings and sprinkle these on top.
- You need six glass jars to serve the cheesecakes in. I just saved up some old sauce jars. Short fat jars work best.
