Chocolate Flapjack No-Cheesecake

IMG_7741

When is a cheesecake not a cheesecake? I have been wondering about this. One obvious answer is ‘when it doesn’t have any cheese in it’ but if it still looks like a cheesecake does that count? Well I’m not sure, but what I am sure about is if you’re looking for a dessert to impress your friends with, a chocolate count of over a million and a chewy flapjack base to get your teeth into, then this is the cheesecake for you. Even if it’s not a cheesecake.

  • Blitz together all the other ingredients in a food processor

Number 3 recipe of my chocolate week…and yes we’re getting very fat in my house at the moment in case you were wondering!

As you bright sparks might have noticted, I intended to top said cheesecake with a lovely mound of fresh strawberries and blueberries, hence they were in the original ingredient picture….but some little thieving two year old got to them first. Sorry about that! So I topped it with passion fruit instead which was particularly good anyway, so there you go.
