Florida Black Chocolate Cheesecake

The perfect round off to the evening comes in the form of this decadent and mouth-watering cheesecake. 


For the Base:

• 60g of unsalted butter

• 125g of crushed digestive biscuits

For the Filling:

• 1 bottle of Florida Black

• 200g of caster sugar

• 500g mascarpone cheese

• 280ml of whipped cream

• 3 tablespoons of honey

• Juice of half a lemon

• 8 sheets of gelatine

• 3 tbsp of water


Melt the butter over a low heat, add in the crushed digestive biscuits. Tip into a lined 6inch spring form tin. Using a spoon press an even layer over the base of the tin. Chill in the refrigerator.

Put Florida Black and sugar in a saucepan and heat on a low heat until it looks like caramel. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Meanwhile put mascarpone cheese and honey in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add lemon juice and whipped cream and mix again.

Put gelatine in water for 5 minutes until soft. Squeeze out excess water, then place the squeezed out gelatine in a bowl and melt in a microwave on high power for 10 seconds. Add the gelatine to the cheese mixture along with the cooled beer mixture and beat well. Tip into the prepared tin and chill in the fridge for at least two hours, or until set.
