Malteser cheesecake (no bake)

Malteser cheesecake (no bake)

Generally I’m a baked cheesecake kind of girl but after my white chocolate and berry cheesecake proved so popular I thought that it would be nice to make a variation on that recipe. This malty, chocolatey malteser version is really indulgent and decadent – a […]
