White and Dark Chocolate Cheesecake

A friend of mine I lived with in first year is a great cook and has a particular specialty of cheesecake. Every time we have dinner together he brings a cheesecake, and usually it's White and Dark Chocolate Cheesecake after I request it! This cheesecake is so incredible and not too sweet.. you will never love cheesecake so much.

I decided to make it for Boxing day as we had some people coming over. It's super easy to do and doesn't even need an oven. It disappeared very fast!

300g digestive biscuits crushed
75g unsalted butter
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

Grease a loose bottomed 8 inch cake tin with butter.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the biscuit crumbs and the cocoa. Stir the mixture and press into the cake tin. Place in the fridge whilst making the filling.

300g white chocolate
300g cream cheese
Roughly 280ml sour cream or crème fraiche
6 tablespoons of icing sugar

Melt the white chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Beat together the cream cheese, sour cream and icing sugar until smooth. Add the white chocolate and beat again until smooth. Pour the filling over the base and allow to chill for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.

I garnished with mistletoe for that festive look!

Also, I now have labels on my blog (check the right side!). So if you're looking for just cooking or just sewing, you can find them all easily!
