Cheesecake anyone? Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  Today I made a cheesecake.  My usual 'low fat' modified version with low fat ricotta, cream cheese and yoghurt .....BUT THEN! I totally fattened it up with layers of fudge and chocolate!

Thought I would share :)

 biscuit base ..... 90 grams crushed biscuit and 45 grams melted butter
Bake base in a preheated oven at 160 degrees celcius for 10 minutes.

 Fudge - 200g chocolate, 25g butter, 1/2 tin light sweetened condensed milk.  Stir in pan until well combined and smooth.  Continuous stirring!

Cheesecake mix - 250g low fat cream cheese
                            250g low fat ricotta cheese
                            250g low fat natural yoghurt
                            2 eggs, 1/3 cup caster sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend it all together in a food processor.
spread some fudge on the cooled base then pour over the cheesecake misture.
 Bake in oven at 160 for 35 - 40 minutes.  It doesn't matter if it wobbles slightly in the middle still.
Let it cool in the oven with the oven door ajar.

Then top with more of the fudge mix ... you will have to gently reheat your fudge pan to make the fudge      

ok .. things went terribly wrong here ... I wanted to do a thin shell of white chocolate on top ... it wouldn't spread and went lumpy .... I think its the type of chocolate I used :(
but I fixed it up with a good thick layer of melted dark chocolate!

topped with some eggs and then refrigerated until chocolate set.

 This is the end result!  Way too much chocolate on top ... and was very hard to cut through!
Would have been much better with just the thin layer of chocolate on top.  But it's Easter ...... LOL.

and sliced into ..... ooozey ... yummy and very rich!

Happy Easter and I hope you enjoy this post.  Usually I make this cheesecake ... without the fudge and chocolate and it is absolutely delicious!  So if you would like a healthier version perhaps just do it that way.
