Planning a dinner party? Missing the festive spirit of Christmas? Or perhaps just want to enjoy a chocolate cheesecake. Either way the cheesecake is perfect for you. Plus it serves 8 nice slices. Serves 8

All you need is

300g chocolate biscuits (bourbons ideally)

125g margarine

200g low fat cream cheese

100g light mascarpone

75g caster sugar

Zest and juice of two satsumas

1 satsuma to decorate

To make it just

Either blitz the biscuits or place them into a zip bag and smash using a rolling pin until fine.

In a bowl mix the biscuits and melted margarine, place this into the bottom of your cake dish and press down so it’s firm.

In another bowl combine the cream cheese, mascarpone, caster sugar, juice and zests of clementines well and then place on top of the biscuits.

Peel the third clementine and place segments on the top of the cake to decorate.

Pop in the fridge for 6 hours, if it isn’t firm then leave for longer.

The reviews are in

When this was placed on the table is was the only desert without alcohol – I feel like that says a lot about my family – and was rather popular as an alternative to booze.

This doesn’t have to only be enjoyed at Christmas, for this recipe I swapped the clementines for satsumas so it’s easier to buy and cheaper.
