Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cheesecake (No Bake)

Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

I’ve always loved Terry’s Chocolate Orange ever since I was a kid. My grandad’s name was Terry and I used to think that he had some sort of involvement in the creation of this delicious treat! One of the first things I made when I started getting into baking were Terry’s Chocolate Orange cupcakes. I made a baked Chocolate Orange Cheesecake a few years ago, which was good, but this no-bake version is much much better! And so easy to make too!

Jump straight to the recipe!

To make the biscuit base I whizzed up the digestive biscuits in my food processor.

I added the melted butter and pressed it into the bottom of the springform tin, I put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

To make the Chocolate Orange Cheesecake filling I used my electric hand mixer to mix together the full fat cream cheese, icing sugar, cocoa powder and orange extract. Once it was mixed I added the double cream and whisked again until the mixture thickened. Then I folded in 8 chopped up segments of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

I put the filling on top of the biscuit base and smoothed it over. I left it in the fridge overnight to set.

The next day I melted 6 segments of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, put it in a piping bag and piped it all over the top of the cheesecake.

For the rest of the decoration, I whipped up some double cream with icing sugar and piped it all around the edge of the cheesecake. I added chopped up segments of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in the middle of the Chocolate Orange Cheesecake, and Mini Terry’s Chocolate Orange in the cream around the edge. Then I added some bronze sprinkles which I got from Waitrose all over.

The Chocolate Orange Cheesecake was so delicious! Buttery biscuit base, creamy chocolate orange filling filled with chocolate bits, fresh cream and more Terry’s Chocolate Orange tastyness on top. It got top votes from my friends and family, even my friend’s adorable 1 year old was a big fan! Surely the most honest review! It was so easy and quick to make, and no oven involved, which is just what I needed during the hot weather on the weekend I made this.

Terry's Chocolate Orange Cheesecake (No Bake)

Servings 12



  • 300 g Digestive biscuits
  • 125 g Butter or baking spread melted


  • 750 g Full fat cream cheese
  • 200 g Icing sugar
  • 30 g Cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp Orange extract
  • 300 ml Double cream


  • 300 ml Double cream
  • 1 tbsp Icing sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 pack of Terry's Mini Chocolate Orange
  • Sprinkles optional
  • 1 Terry's Chocolate Orange


  1. Use a food processor to whizz up the digestive biscuits into crumbs. Or put them in a food bag and smash with a rolling pin. Then put into a mixing bowl

  2. Add the melted butter to the biscuit crumbs and mix together, then press them into the bottom of a 23cm springform tin until compact and an even layer. Put it in the fridge for 30 minutes

  3. To make the filling use an electric hand mixer or a food mixer with a whisk attachment to mix together the full fat cream cheese, icing sugar, cocoa powder and orange extract until smooth

  4. Add the double cream and whisk again until the mixture thickens considerably. You want it to be thick enough so you have to shake or tap the spoon to make it fall off. Fold in 8 chopped up segments of the Terry's Chocolate Orange with a spoon or spatula

  5. Put the filling on top of the biscuit base and smooth it over. Put it in the fridge overnight or for 5-6 hours to set

  6. Remove from the tin and put on your serving plate. Smooth the sides with a butter knife to create a neater finish

  7. Melt 6 segments of the Terry's Chocolate Orange in a glass bowl in the microwave. Start with a 30 second blast, stir the mixture, then do 10 second blasts stirring in between until it's melted. Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag, snip off a small bit at the end and pipe it all over the top of the cheesecake in a zig zag pattern, or however you like

  8. Whip up the double cream with the icing sugar and vanilla using an electric hand mixer or by hand with a whisk and pipe it all around the edge of the cheesecake using a closed star nozzle (mine is Jem 1E)

  9. Sprinkle 6 chopped up segments of a Terry's Chocolate Orange in the middle, and place Mini Terry's Chocolate Orange segments in the cream. Then add some sprinkles of your choice all over

  1. Mmmm, this looks so good Kat! I have a huge weakness for terry’s Chocolate orange and so i have to be very restrained when I’m anywhere near them in the supermarket! Love that your Grandad was called terry too – I imagine your family let you think that he had a majot tole to play with the chocolate 🙂
