For the base

For the cheesecake mixture

  • 2 Whole Terry's Chocolate Orange 157g each
  • 500 ml Double cream Whipped
  • 560 g Cream cheese Full fat
  • 100 g Icing sugar
  • Half a Lemon Juice only
  • 2 tsp Orange Extract If you have it and/or want a stronger flavour. This isn't vital, but it is delicious

For decoration

  • 100 ml Double cream Whipped
  • 12 Terry's Chocolate Orange pieces About 1 whole Chocolate Orange
  • Orange Gel Food Colouring Please see notes


  1. Crush the biscuits until they look like lumpy sand. (I do mine in a food processor because I'm lazy!)

  2. Mix with the melted butter and press into your 7" tin.

  3. Gently melt the 2 Terry's Chocolate Oranges in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water. Stir until smooth and then put to one side and allow to cool for 5 minutes while you get on with the next step.

  4. Combine the whipped double cream, cream cheese, icing sugar, lemon juice and orange essence (if using). Fold in gently until fully combined. Add the cooled melted Chocolate Oranges and stir thoroughly.

  5. Smooth on top of the biscuit base and flatten the top with the back of a spoon or a palette knife if you have one.

  6. Put into the freezer for 2 hours, fridge for four hours, or leave over night if you are not in a rush.

  7. Bring out of the fridge, remove from the tin.

  8. Melt your white chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water, colour the white chocolate with a tiny amount of gel colouring and allow to cool very slightly before drizzling over the cake in zigzags.

  9. Pipe remaining whipped cream and decorate with Chocolate Orange segments.  

  10. Share and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Note 1 - Cream Cheese - Let the cream cheese come to room temperature if possible before using. It will help it to blend in smoothly!
