This recipe makes a very decadent treat for dessert and is perfect for enjoying with a big cup of coffee after dinner. I made this using Scheese cream cheese which I picked up in Holland and Barrett.




For the base:

  • 100g dairy free spread, melted
  • 200g gluten free digestive biscuits

For the filling:

  • 100g dairy free dark chocolate, melted
  • 450g dairy free cream cheese
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dairy free cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 150 oC
  2. Grease a 9″ round springform tin
  3. Crush the biscuits into fine crumbs and pour in the melted butter
  4. Press into the base of the tin
  5. Bake for 15 minutes
  6. Beat together the melted chocolate, cream cheese, caster sugar, cocoa powder, mint extract and eggs
  7. Pour over the biscuit base and bake for 50 minutes
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool
  9. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight, if possible
