Quick Christmas Maths….Dark chocolate + Kit Kat + biscuits = one big happy grinning family!!

Christmas for me has to have some form of concoction with chocolate & since Kit Kat is our family favourite, it wasn’t a difficult choice. Checkout my adaptation of Naomi’s (@bakersroyale_Naomi) recipe on this easy to make chocolate delight that would definitely get you full marks!

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 and 1/2 cups of digestive biscuits crumbs 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 8 tbsp of butter

Chocolate Cheese Cake layer

  • 12 oz cream cheese (I used cottage cheese since cream cheese wasn’t available & it worked equally well)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1/3 cup sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • 20-24 kit kat bars, depending on the size of your tin

Chocolate Layer

  • 10 oz. chocolate 
  • 8 tbsp butter

White Chocolate Striping

  • 4 oz white chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions:

  • Heat oven to 170C. Line the pan with a sling foil.

To make crust

  • Toss & combine digestive crumbs & sugar. Add in melted butter and mix  to combine. Press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake at 170C for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

To make Chocolate Cheese Cake

  • Beat all the ingredients until fully combined and smooth; set aside. Place kitkat bars on top of the biscuit crust base. Pour cheesecake mixture over kitkat bars and bake for 30-35 minutes at 170C. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

To make Chocolate Layer

  • Melt chocolate & butter in a heatproof bowl over hot water, gently stir until fully combined. Pour this chocolate over baked cheesecake.
  • Boil heavy cream & pour over white chocolate chips. Stir after 3-4 mins. with a spatula until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Transfer mixture in a Ziplock bag and cut a small hole in one corner.
  • Pipe whte chocolate horizontally across from top to bottom. Use a toothpick and starting at the top drag the toothpick vertically through horizontal lines. Starting from the bottom, drag the toothpick to the top. Continue to alternate starting points witsh a toothpick.
