- 400 g chocolate wafers finely crushed
- ¼ cup unsalted butter melted
- zest from 1 orange
- 800 g cream cheese room temperature
- 8 oz semisweet chocolate melted
- zest from 1 orange
- 160 g granulated sugar
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 800 ml whipping cream
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 tsp powdered gelatin
- 5 tbsp water
- ½ orange thinly sliced
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ cup water
- Gold sprinkles
- Terry’s chocolate orange slices
Make the base:
- Combine the chocolate wafers, butter and orange zest in a bowl.
- Press it into the bottom of a 9 inch round springform pan. Place the pan in the fridge to chill while you make the filling.
Make the filling:
- Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the semisweet chocolate, orange zest, sugar and cocoa powder and mix to combine.
- Add the whipping cream, lemon juice and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- Combine the gelatin and water in a small bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, or until the gelatin has fully melted. Add this to the cheesecake mixture and mix well until combined.
- Pour into the springform pan and smooth the surface. Place in the fridge overnight, or until firm.
Make the topping and decorate:
- Place the orange slices in a pot of cold water. Bring to a boil and boil for 30 seconds. Drain, then place in another pot with the sugar and 2 tbsp water. Bring to a simmer and cook until the orange peel is translucent, 10-20 minutes.
- Transfer to a plate and cool completely.
- Slide a sharp knife around the inside edges of the cake pan, then release the sides of the pan.
- Sprinkle a variety of gold sprinkles onto the cheesecake. Top with the candied oranges and Terry’s chocolate orange slices and enjoy!
