Kenwood Christmas Menu: No Bake 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.
