Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 170°c/325F/Gas 3

Base

  • For the base put the biscuits, nuts, chocolate (broken into chunks, or chopped), and oil in a food processor and mix together.
  • Once the mixture comes together in a clump, take out of the processor and press it into the bottom of a 20cm round cake tin or 8" square tin
  • Chill this whilst you prepare the cheesecake.

Peanut Butter

  • Make a peanut butter by whizzing together 150g nuts with barely 2 tablespoons of oil until it is very smooth.

Cheesecake Filling

  • For the filling place the soft cheese, eggs, and egg yolk along with the sugar, yogurt, and peanut butter into a food processor and mix until it is combined.
  • Pour the filling mixture onto the cheesecake base
  • Cook for an hour, checking after 50 minutes. The top should be golden-coloured and completely set.

  • Once the filling is cooked, take it out of the oven while you make the topping.

Topping

  • Warm the yogurt, sugar and chopped chocolate in a saucepan over very low heat, just until the chocolate is completely melted and it looks like smooth, chocolate-y sauce.
  • Spoon the topping over the top of the cheesecake.

Chill overnight

  • Let the cheesecake cool at room temperature. Once the tin no longer feels warm, put into the fridge for several hours before serving, but ideally overnight.
