Cheesecake heaven

Difficulty level: Happy days.

The cake:
You'll need
- 400 grams of Marie biscuits or similar rich tea biscuits.
- 200 grams of cacao powder
- 1 table spoon of sugar
- 4 eggs
- a small amount of melted butter

Use a springform pan, this will make it easier to unmold your cheesecake. Line the base of your pan with greaseproof paper. Put your biscuits into a plastic freezer bag. Beat the living daylights out of your biscuits, but do not overdo it. Put the sugar, cacao powder and biscuits in a bowl. Add the eggs and melted butter. Mix everything by hand. If you do not want sticky hands you can choose to blend everything in a food processor or blender. Put your mixture in the springform pan to form the base of your cheesecake. Let your cookie layer rest in the fridge.

The cheese:
You'll need
- 500 grams of white chocolate
- 250 grams of curd
- 250 grams of mascarpone
- 250 ml of whipping cream
- 100 grams of white caster sugar

Melt the chocolate au Bain Marie. Beat the cream in a bowl. Add the curd, mascarpone, sugar and melted chocolate and mix it all up until you get a smooth batter. Divide the Cheesy goodness on top of the cookie layer. Let it chill and set in the fridge for three hours. You can do a little dance while you wait.

The balance:
You'll need
- Dark chocolate
- powdered sugar
- Choose your fruit. Raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries. Whatever you like. You could also go for passion fruit. Cheesecake and passion fruit share the same color pallet, this makes this combination less visually appetizing than the other fruits I mention. You can also combine fruits. It is your party as they say.

This is possible the most important part of the recipe and yet the easiest. Carefully remove your cheesecake from the baking tin.  Add your choice of fruit. Make sure you cover the surface of your cheesecake with fruit. Grate the dark chocolate and decorate your cake with it. Finish it off by adding powdered sugar.

Digg in!
