Jaffa cheesecake

So, as I mentioned in my recipe for White chocolate cheesecake, I use this as my base cheesecake recipe for heaps of different variations.  This variation is for all the orange-chocolate lovers out there!

There are two steps you need to add to the base recipe to transform it into choc-orange deliciousness.

Steps for choc orange cheesecake goodness:

  1. At step 6, add 1.5 tsp of orange essence to the cream cheese mixture.
  2. Between steps 7 and 8, add 1 cup of crushed Jaffas to the cheesecake mixture.
  3. Continue on your merry cheesecake way…

There is also an alternate you can do for the base, but it will depend on whether you can find these biscuits anymore, or a suitable alternative…

About a year ago Arnott’s released a chocolate orange version of the Delta Cream biscuit in Australia.  If by some miracle your local supermarket still stocks these, you can exchange the base for a 250g packet of these, crushed into fine crumbs and mixed with 80g of melted butter.

NOTE:  Some people (like my fiancé do not enjoy ‘bits’ in their cheesecake, so I add an additional 1/2 tsp (total of 2 tsp) of the orange essence to the mixture and then leave out the crushed Jaffas (as seen in the above photo).
