  • 5.3 ounces of melted butter

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 17.6 ounces of cream cheese (adjust based on dietary needs)
  • 2.8 ounces of icing sugar
  • 9.5 fluid ounces of heavy or alternative cream

For the Topping:

  1. Prepare an 18cm springform pan by lightly greasing it. Crush the biscuits and candies to a fine texture, blend with melted butter, and press into the base of the pan. Chill in the refrigerator.
  2. For the filling, combine the cooled, melted chocolate with the dissolved malted drink mixture. Whip the cream cheese, icing sugar, malted mixture, cocoa powder, and chocolate until smooth. In a separate bowl, whip the cream to stiff peaks and fold into the chocolate mixture. Spread over the biscuit base and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Create the topping by heating the cream, then pouring over the chocolate to melt. After cooling slightly, pour half over the cheesecake, sprinkle with half the candies, add the rest of the ganache, and finish with the remaining candies.
