Chocolate condensed-milk cheesecake
A delicious treat to impress your friends.
200 g packet of Romany Creams
100 g Marie biscuits
20 ml cocoa
90 g CLOVER Mooi River butter, melted
2 x 250 g tubs of cream cheese
250 ml CLOVER sour cream
1 x 385 g tin of CLOVER condensed milk
45 ml cake flour
3 extra-large egg
5 ml vanilla essence
200 g dark chocolate, broken into small blocks
30 ml cocoa
1 x 65 g packet of chocolate shortcake balls, e.g. Chuckles or Whispers, halved
- Preheat the oven to 160°C.
- Crust: Finely chop the Romany Cream in a food processor. Add the cocoa; then chop again until thoroughly mixed. Add the melted butter and mix once more.
- Use the blunt side of a knife and firmly press the cookie crumbs onto the bottom and sides of a loose-bottomed cake pan of approximately 22 cm in diameter.
- Filling: Combine the cream cheese, sour cream and condensed milk in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
- Sift the cake flour; then thoroughly mix it into the cream-cheese mixture.
- Beat the eggs; then add the vanilla essence.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave oven for 2 minutes at 50% power. Stir the mixture after every minute of cooking time. Microwave for a few extra seconds if necessary. Let the chocolate cool down a little; then mix it into the cream cheese mixture.
- Pour the cream-cheese mixture onto the Romany Cream crust.
- Place the cake pan in a larger pan to avoid any mess in the oven. Bake the cheesecake for 50 minutes (it doesn’t have to be completely set in the middle).
- Leave the cheesecake in the oven for 20 minutes, with the oven door slightly ajar. After 20 minutes, open the oven door wide and let the cheesecake cool down completely.
- Wiggle the cake pan to loosen the cheesecake; then place it on a serving plate.
- On top: Sift the cocoa over the top, sprinkle with the halved shortcake balls, and serve.
