My blog has been fairly quiet since before Christmas, I've just been fairly busy with work and not had time to do anything really creative in the kitchen.
Today is a rare Sunday off for me so I've decided to make a cheesecake! My friends are having a stressful time at the moment so I'm hoping to cheer them up with this chocolate and coffee treat.
I haven't followed any recipes, which in hindsight I should have because my biscuit to topping ratio was completely out. Thankfully my family have been helping with the excess topping by digging their spoons in.
I started by melting butter and crushing these chocolate and cream biscuits into it
I melted the dark chocolate with a teaspoon of coffee extract and butter
While the cheesecake was chilling I tried to find something to decorate it with. I thought I had chocolate coated beans but I couldn't find them then decided to try and make a syrup.
I brewed some coffee and added this to some golden caster sugar and boiled the living daylights out of it
