A deliciously creamy Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake recipe made with a buttery biscuit base and decorated with fresh whipped cream and mini Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake. Chocolate and orange is one of the best flavour combinations ever and this flavour makes this no bake cheesecake the perfect summer dessert. A no bake chocolate orange cheesecake that is silky smooth and rich. Perfect for fans of Terry’s chocolate orange.

The first time I ever attempted this Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake was when my brother’s friends came around. I had never made it before so I was a tad worried that they wouldn’t like it. I was rather proud of how it ended up, especially with the decorations and all but there was a problem as there was WAY too much filling and the biscuit base was kind of thin. So, I made it again. This time I made less of the filling and more of the biscuit base and it was the perfect proportion. Since then I have made this recipe SO many times I have lost count and it has turned out perfect every time.

Out of all of the cheesecake recipes on this website from my Oreo cheesecake to my white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake to my mint aero cheesecake this one is probably my favourite. Whilst everyone else in my family prefers Oreo this is my favourite. Probably because I LOVE the combination of chocolate and orange. I mean who doesn’t?! Well, actually it turns a lot of people don’t like that flavour pair and I have nothing to say to those people…

I know people have different preferences in terms of proportion. For example, my cousin always wants a half: half ratio of biscuit base to cheesecake filling whereas I prefer a greater ratio of cheesecake filling to the biscuit base. I also like my biscuit base to be quite buttery. In this cheesecake recipe, I use Hobnobs because I like the crunchiness of the biscuits to contrast with the chocolaty filling.

If you look at the recipe then you are probably thinking why does this crazy lady ask for such a specific amount of Terry’s chocolate orange? The reason being is that one whole Terry’s chocolate orange weighs 157g, so it just makes sense to use it all. Although with that being said I never get to actually use a full one. I will be looking away and I will have one piece sneakily stolen from me by one of by siblings. Then another. Then another. True story actually. I had to send my brother to go buy some more Terry’s orange at that point.

So, the main ingredient in every cheesecake is…yep you guessed it…the cream cheese. Now, I remember when I first started making cheesecakes, I could never find any cream cheese in the major supermarkets. I ended up thinking that cream cheese was just not an ingredient available in the UK. Turns out in the UK cream cheese is actually called soft cheese. I usually use Philadelphia; however, I have tried Aldi and Tesco branded soft cheese with similar results.

Recently it came to my notice that it turns out Elmlea is NOT actual cream. If you don’t know what Elmlea is then this is irrelevant. But I feel like a lot of people are misled into thinking that it is double cream (I was one of them), but it is not. It is actually an alternative to double cream. I have always wondered why it tasted weird and it is always so much harder to whip up than other cream. It does work as a substitute of course, and the benefit of using Elmlea is that it does have a significantly longer shelf-life than real double cream. However, I am going to stick to using double cream from now on.

A trick that I learn for making whipped cream fast is to chill your bowl and whisks in the refrigerator first. This AWESOME trick mean that I could whip up the cold double much faster. In this recipe you may end up with some whipped cream remaining. However, usually when I serve a slice I add a dollop of the remaining whipped cream on the side. If you’re not really a fan of whipped cream, then you can just omit the decoration part of it entirely.

Any decoration that I use in any of my cheesecake recipes is obviously optional. That is why I like to mix up the way I decorate my cakes. Depends on how I feel that day. I wanted to jazz up this Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake recipe, so I added whipped cream and Terry’s orange segments. You could make it even fancier or less if you can’t be bothered to decorate (me – most of the time…) Sometimes I add whipped cream or ganache or anything really. Check out my other cheesecake recipes for more decoration inspirations.

I make all my cheesecakes in an 8-inch (20cm) springform pans. Most recipes online as well also utilise 8-inch pans as well. They usually are your best bet if you make lots of cheesecakes. Although, if you make lots of cheesecakes you would probably have figured that out yourself by now.

So, in terms of how many people this would serve it depends on how big you like to cut your slices. In my family we usually tend to cut them quite thin, because the cheesecake can be quite filling at times. I realise most people probably would have larger slices though. I would probably make about 10 slices, but if you prefer bigger slices than you could also cut into 8 slices.

If I am planning on making cheesecake, I always like to plan it out. The main reason being is that I never actually have the ingredients, such as the cream cheese and double cream, due to their short shelf lives. I only buy them when I know I am going to use them. So, I usually know when I intend to make a cheesecake. This allows me to make the cheesecake the night before and leave it to set in the refrigerator overnight. However, if you are short on time then you can leave it to set for less time, but at least allow for a minimum of 6 hours.

This Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake has a buttery biscuit base with a deliciously creamy chocolate filling.
