A recipe for a delicious-looking Milkybar cheesecake is being widely shared online after being published by a London chef on Instagram.

Eloise Head runs the FitWaffle Kitchen account and uses it to share decadent desserts that can be prepared quickly and easily.

She published the Milkybar cheesecake recipe earlier this month after earning hundreds of thousands of followers as people embraced baking during COVID-19 lockdowns.

The recipe uses just six ingredients: shortbread, butter, cream cheese, icing sugar, double cream and Milkybar chocolate

"It has a thick, butter shortbread base, a super creamy white chocolate filling and a silky white chocolate ganache on the top. It's so dreamy!" Head wrote on Instagram, along with a video showing step-by-step how to prepare the dish.

FitWaffle Kitchen's Milkybar cheesecake recipe

Base:

  • 350g shortbread biscuits, crushed
  • 175g melted butter

Cheesecake:

  • 250g Milkybar chocolate
  • 500g cream cheese
  • 120g icing sugar
  • 350ml double cream

Topping:

  • 250g Milkybar chocolate
  • 200ml double cream
  • Shortbread crumbs
  • Milkybar square

Base method:

  1. Mix the crushed shortbread biscuits with the melted butter in a bowl until combined.
  2. Scoop mixture into a cake tin, pressing it down firmly with a spoon before putting it in the fridge to set.

Cheesecake method:

  1. Whip the double cream until soft peaks have formed on the top. Put aside.
  2. Mix the cream cheese with icing sugar and whisk the two together, then add the melted Milkybar and whisk it all together until it's smooth.
  3. Scoop the whipped cream left aside earlier into the cream cheese and Milkybar mixture.
  4. Pour the lot over the refrigerated biscuit base, smooth it out then leave it to chill for around five hours.

Topping method:

  1. Pour the double cream over the Milkybar chocolate and melt in the microwave for around 1 minute 30 seconds.
  2. Pour that mixture onto the chilled cheesecake and smooth it over with a palette knife.
  3. Sprinkle the leftover shortbread crumbs around the rim of the cake and press a square of Milkybar chocolate into the centre to decorate.
