I have never thought of making Malteaser Cheesecake but not sure why I waited so long to make it!! as it’s so yummy. I do like Malteasers, their crispiness, malty & creamy taste. I wanted this cheesecake to be extra chocolately so I added melted chocolate and it worked really well. I also added chopped Malteasers for that extra texture and bite.
These turned out really well, you could taste the malt and the fact I used Malt biscuits instead of the usual digestives, it enhanced the flavour too. They are a bit rich but as they are mini they are manageable. Also if you like Malteasers these hits the mark.
As with most of my cheesecake recipes, this was no bake and easy to do, also this can be prepared in advance. They make a fantastic dessert.
