Terry’s 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’ Chocolate Orange cupcakes. Since moving my blog over from Blogger to WordPress I’ve been working on improving my content and recipes. So many of my old recipes no longer reflect my current style, skills and tastes. 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!

To make the biscuit base I whizzed up 250g digestive biscuits in my food processor.

I added 80g melted butter and pressed it into the bottom of a 23″ springform tin, I put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

To make the filling I used my electric hand mixer to mix together 750g full fat cream cheese, 200g icing sugar, 30g cocoa powder and 2 tsp orange extract. Once it was mixed I added 300ml 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 300ml double cream with 2 tbsp icing sugar and piped it all around the edge of the cheesecake. I added 6 chopped up segments of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in the middle, and Mini Terry’s Chocolate Orange in the cream. Then I added some bronze sprinkles which I got from Waitrose all over.

The 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.

Ingredients

Base

  • 250 g Digestive biscuits

Decoration

  • 300 ml Double cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing sugar
  • 1 pack of Terry's Mini Chocolate Orange
  • Sprinkles
  • 1 Terry's Chocolate Orange

Instructions

  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 23" 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. 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. 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

  7. Whip up the double cream with the icing sugar using an electric hand mixer or by hand and piped it all around the edge of the cheesecake using a closed star nozzle (mine is Jem 1E). 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. Thanks Karen, I do hope you enjoy it and please do tag me if you share a photo of it on social media as I’d love to see it!

  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 🙂

    PS, i had a hunch that you’d migrated from Blogger. I’d love to hear if the migration went smoothly and if you did it yourself etc. It’s all looking absolutely great though 🙂
