Chocolate Philadelphia Cheesecake

chocolate philadelphia cheesecake recipe instructions and ingredients simple one hour to make

A couple of weeks ago, before my trip to Brussels, Rob asked if I’d make him a cheesecake to have while I was away. His little face lit up when the idea of using chocolate philly popped into his head, of course I couldn’t say no!

The thing I love most about this is that it’s SO SIMPLE! You really do only need 5 ingredients. Also I should probably be politically correct and tell you it’s technically called Philadelphia with Cadbury.

It’s adapted from my low-fat cheesecake recipe – chocolate Philadelphia is not that bad for you, and if you use reduced fat biscuits, butter/spread and yoghurt then it’s definitely good for you.

The one thing it doesn’t need from the original recipe is any added sugar or sweetener. Unlike normal cream cheese the chocolate version has a wonderfully sweet tang which doesn’t need anything adding!


Approx 15 digestive biscuits (low-fat if you fancy)
25g butter/low-fat spread
250g chocolate Philadelphia (About 1 1/2 tubs)
250g plain/vanilla yoghurt
2 eggs


– crush the biscuits (using a good processor helps to get them very fine for a nice smooth base), and mix with the melted butter. Press into the bottom of a springform/loose-bottom tin (8-10 inches works well with this recipe), and pop in the fridge

– beat together the yoghurt and cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs and fold in until just mixed (don’t beat once the eggs are added)
– pour the chocolate mixture over the biscuit base, smooth with a spatula, and bake for 25-40 minutes at 180 degrees

– after 25 minutes check every 5 minutes or so to see if it’s done. You want the top to be just cooked, it can still wobble but shouldn’t look liquid-y. If you’re not sure give it another few minutes.

– remove from the oven, run a knife around the edge so it can cool without sticking

Let it cool completely – trust me it’s worth it – and adorn with anything you wish – I added some extra chunks and sprinkles of chocolate (Cadbury of course), and a sprinkle of icing sugar.
