BLACK FOREST CHEESECAKE
By Sharmila Jayasinghe Niriella
Chocolate biscuits ( Without cream)
Process or mash biscuits, add softened butter. Press the mixture on to a pie dish. Put in fridge for half hour.
200g choc bits ( dark gives a richer colour, I used milk cause kids like it)
2 tubs of 250g Cream cheese
½ cup brown sugar
2 tbls boiling water
2 tsp gelatine
Beat softened cream cheese and sugar with an electrical mixer till creamy. Microwave choc bits for 2-3 seconds, mix with a spoon till melted. Add to cream cheese. Beat till combine. Mix gelatine and boiling water, add to cream cheese and mixture. ( if u want cheese mixture to be richer, add 2 tblsp of whiskey or sweet sherry)
Remove the choc pie shell and place in a serving dish. Fill in the cream cheese mixture. Flatten with a knife. Place cherries on top drizzle melted choc over cherries with a spoon. (melting choc -microwave a hand full of choc bits & 3 tbls cream) alternatively u can place a dollop of whipped cream on top and decorate with strawberries.
Can make this a day in advance.
