Raspberry & Redcurrant Chocolate Cheesecake

 

Celebrating Pink with Raspberry & Redcurrant Cheesecake and our new pink / grey bento lunchbox.

This cheesecake has always been a winner in our family. Its a no-cook version that tastes as good as it looks, and is adaptable in so many ways.

I have changed this recipe lots of times over the years, and haven’t yet found a combination that didn’t work. Whether you're after a chocolate base or crunchy nutty twist, it’s so easy just to add or take away what you’d like. The filling can also be adapted, from citrus fruits (orange, lime tangerine…) to the whole fruits mixed into it. It always seems to work, as long as you stay to the core basic ingredients.

I’ve been known to make a tantalising chocolate and orange version, with chocolate rasps and kumquat, to this vibrant raspberry and redcurrant version pictured here -a very fresh and fruity combination! One word of caution though. Always make sure you leave it long enough in the fridge for it to set. No one likes a sloppy cheesecake, no matter how nice the topping is….!

Whichever twist you would like, follow the basics, and throw caution to the wind -test your creative side... 

Wow your friends this raspberry season with this visually striking dessert….

3. Place the biscuits into a food processor, and blast the biscuits. Try not to turn them into dust -it's ok to leave some small lumps.

4. Melt the butter and chocolate. You can do this in a microwave, or melt the chocolate over a hot pan. (Tip: Try to make sure to add a little of the butter to the chocolate to aid the melting process). Be careful not to overheat the chocolate, remember only to heat it just enough for it to melt. 

5. Add the chocolate and butter to the biscuit mix and zap a little longer to evenly coat the biscuit mixture.
