Pour your biscuit mixture into your prepared tin and using the back of a dessert spoon or your knuckles, push the biscuit into the bottom of the tin until the base is covered and the mixture is compacted. Place it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.

Place your cheesecake in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Then turn the oven off but leave the cheesecake in the oven for another hour. There is no need to leave the door open, just keep it shut. After an hour, remove the cheesecake from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool completely. The cheesecake will have turned darker and it will be coming away from the sides of the tin slightly.

Once the cheesecake has cooled completely, place it in the fridge. Now get a plate and cut a piece of parchment/greaseproof paper to roughly the size of the plate.

Place your milk chocolate in a bowl and melt in the microwave. Be careful to keep an eye on it and don’t burn it, i think mine melted after 40 seconds.

Using a dessert spoon, trickle the liquid chocolate over the covered plate in a swirly pattern. Mine turned into a big swirly mess, but you get the idea!

Easy Chocolate Orange Cheesecake Recipe method 16
Place your plate of swirly chocolate in the fridge and leave it to harden. Once this has happened, remove it from the fridge, gently pull it away from the parchment/greaseproof paper and break into cunky pieces.

Remove your cheesecake from the fridge and as you are using a springform tin you can just remove the sides and serve it on the base. Now scatter your milk chocolate swirls over the top of the cheesecake.
