Chocolate Berry Cheesecake
A mouth-watering fruity cheesecake ... sure to be a hit with all the family.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 100g butter, melted
- 250g sweet plain chocolate biscuits*
- 425g can Wattie's Boysenerries in Syrup
- 500g pottle cream cheese
- 2tsp gelatin
- 100g caster sugar
Step 1Crush the biscuits in a food processor or by placing in a sealed plastic bag and crushing with a rolling pin. Stir in the melted butter. Press into the base and sides of a 23cm loose bottom deep dish flan tin. Refrigerate until required.
Step 2Drain the Wattie's Boysenberries in Syrup over a sieve, into a bowl, pressing the berries gently with the back of a spoon to release the excess syrup, and so they are slightly broken down, ready for mixing with the cream cheese. Reserve the collected syrup for the topping.
Step 3Beat together the drained and slightly crushed boysenberries with the cream cheese and caster sugar until smooth. Spread into the prepared flan, and refrigerate until required.
Step 4Sprinkle the gelatin over the reserved boysenberry juice and when it has been absorbed, warm in the microwave for 2 minutes on high and stir until dissolved. Cool to room temperature before pouring. Pour over the cheesecake filling and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
