Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: English
Serves: 10

  • Base:
  • 200g digestives
  • 90g butter
  • Filling:
  • 300g cream cheese (i.e.large tub of Philadelphia)
  • 50g-100g sugar (I tend to use 75g)
  • 200ml natural yoghurt
  • 300ml double cream
  • 200g milk chocolate (I use Cadbury dairy milk but could use dark chocolate if preferred)
  • 200g white chocolate (I use Tesco Finest Swiss White chocolate as that also contains vanilla which gives the white chocolate more taste)

  1. Crush the biscuits – I put them in a polythene bag and use my hands to break up the biscuits then using a rolling pin.
  2. Melt the butter then add the crushed digestives and mix well until all the crumbs are coated.
  3. Press into a 20cm(ish) springform cake tin and leave somewhere cool (fridge is fine).
  4. Cream the sugar and cream cheese together then mix in the yoghurt.
  5. Whip the double cream until its really thick (holding itself up) then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
  6. Put half the mixture into another bowl.
  7. Melt both chocolates separately then stir the milk chocolate into one cream cheese mixture and the white into the other cream cheese mixture.
  8. Next put both mixtures onto the biscuit base – either a layer of white and layer of milk or dollops of each to get a marble effect. Keep in the fridge to set (at least 2 hours or overnight).
