Whether you're looking to use up leftover Easter eggs, are on the hunt for a new dessert for a special occasion or just love any excuse to consume chocolate (we hear you), a chocolate cheesecake is the answer. From a double chocolate marbled number to no-bake banoffee version and even a cheesecake twist on a red velvet, this collection of recipes features plenty of different takes from the likes of Mary Berry, Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson.
Mary's marbled recipe features white and dark chocolate delecately rippled into a creamy no-bake cheesecake, because why have just one type of chocolate when you can have two?
Another no-bake option, Nigella's sleek and simple cheesecake features the perfect balance of sweet white chocolate, tart lemon and a spicy gingernut base.
Jamie's freezer-friendly banoffee cheesecake is made using just five simple ingredients.
If you love the flavours of a red velvet cake, why not turn it into a cheesecake? This ingenious recipe is a chocoholic's dream dessert, with cocoa powder in the cookie base and white chocolate folded through the cake batter.
