Kenwood Christmas Menu: No Bake Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

This is the second installment in my Kenwood Christmas Menu feature. This weeks theme was preparing the pud......however as most of my family aren't Christmas Pudding lovers I decided to make an alternative Christmas themed dessert using my Kenwood Chef Titanium.

This Chocolate Orange Cheesecake is no bake and so easy that even my husband could make it.....I think! I used the Kenwood Chef Processor attachment to blitz the biscuits and then the standard bowl and paddle attachment to mix the cream cheese and chocolate together. I've used a combination of dark and milk chocolate but if this is for adults only I would probably use all dark chocolate.

Don't forget to have a look at what Karen at Lavender and Lovage, Sian at Fishfingers for Tea, Becs at Lay The Table and Eliza at The Recipe Blog have created this week too.

PERFECT! What a perfect and delicious dessert for Christmas, and I love the fact that it is NO BAKE too, aiding fuss-free cooking at a busy time of year. I adore the combination of orange and chocolate and this would appeal to me as a great dessert for the Christmas Eve Tea Time Table! Karen

A no bake pudding over Christmas sounds very tempting indeed! Cheesecake is one of my favourite puddings, bookmarked!

Agree with Karen and Sian - great idea but having to bake the dessert! And so easy to make in advance and pull it out Blue Peter style - Here's one I made earlier!
