  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan, 325°F, gas mark 3). Butter and line and 22cm diameter spring form tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Use a food processor to reduce the cookies into nice fine crumbs. Add in the melted butter and mix well.

  3. Step 3:

    Place the mixture into the tin and press down using a cold metal spoon. Put into a hot oven for 10 minutes to roast. When cool place in the fridge to set.

  4. Step 4:

    For the filling beat the mascarpone and crème fraiche with eggs, yolks, sugar, peanut butter and soured cream in a mixer until you get a smooth consistency.

  5. Step 5:

    Spoon the mix into the prepared tin over the base and bake for 50 – 60 minutes until set but still wobbly. Leave to set in the fridge.

  6. Step 6:

    For the topping, warm the soured cream, chocolate and sugar in a saucepan. Once smooth pour the mixture on top of the cold cheesecake and leave it to set.
