  • 6 inch Cake Tin
  • Sandwich Bag
  • Rolling Pin
  • Mixing bowl x 2
  • Wooden spoon
  • whisk
  • spoon


  • 50 g Unsalted butter
  • 200 g shortbread biscuits
  • 300 g Soft cream cheese I used Philadelphia
  • 60 g Caster sugar
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 g White chocolate
  • red colour paste (don't use liquid colouring as it will cause the chocolate to go weird)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • Halloween Sweets and Candy


  • Lightly grease an 6 inch loose base cake tin with a little melted butter – use a little of the same butter that you use for the base. (I also added a greaseproof paper circle at the bottom to help it off the base later).
  • Melt the butter gently in the microwave in short bursts (in a microwavable bowl) or in a saucepan on a low heat and then take off the heat so it doesn't burn.
  • Crush the shortbread biscuits in a food processor, or put it in a plastic sandwich bag and use a rolling pin to break them up (my preferred method to leave them as a larger crumb).
  • Put the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir until all the biscuits are coated in the butter.
  • Scoop the crumbs into the tin and push down gently with the back of a spoon to make a hard layer. Place the cake tin in the fridge and leave to harden for 30 minutes while you make the cream layer.
  • In a bowl cream together the cream cheese and caster sugar until the sugar has dissolved and is well distributed. Then stir in the vanilla extract.
  • In a new bowl whip the double cream until it is thick.
  • Gently stir in the thick double cream and cream cheese mixture together.
  • Remove the cake tin from the fridge and add the cream cheese to the base and level off.
  • Put back into the fridge to set for at least an hour. Longer is fine if you want to make it ahead of time for an event.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a plate.
  • Melt the white chocolate in bowl in short bursts in the microwave to make sure it doesn't burn. Once melted add a tiny bit of red colouring paste at a time until it goes a gorgeous red colour. Add the teaspoon of vegetable oil and it will make much more of a liquid.
  • Drizzle the chocolate over the cheesecake. Don't leave it too thick as it will hard to cut and you'll squash the cheesecake trying to cut through. A good drizzle will add an extra flavour and texture but still make it easy to cut.
  • Add all your favourite sweets and candy.
  • Serve and enjoy.


•This is a great no bake dessert for Halloween and Halloween Parties.
•You can create this cheesecake in advance for a party or event.
•Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight box. It will last about 3 days.
