    Cooking Time: 1 hr 15 mins + chilling time


    • Cheesecake

    • 1 x 250g packet Tennis Biscuits, crushed
    • 100g butter, melted
    • 500g cream cheese
    • 300g sour cream
    • 175g (¾ cup) castor sugar
    • 3 large eggs
    • Bar One Topping

    • 2 large Bar Ones, cut into pieces
    • 125ml (½ cup) cream



    Preheat the oven to 160°C. Whizz or process the biscuits until crumbs form. Add the melted butter and process until combined.


    Press the crumbs into the base of a 22cm springform tin. Refrigerate.


    Blend the cream cheese, sour cream and castor sugar. Beat in the eggs.


    Pour the mixture onto the biscuit base. Place on a baking tray and bake for 1 hour. Cool slightly in the oven.


    For the Bar One topping, melt the chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler (don’t try to do this without a double boiler or the chocolate will burn). Stir well until smooth.


    When smooth, spread carefully over the cheesecake. Refrigerate for a day before serving.
