Folks I don’t think it would be Christmas without a thoroughly good cheesecake recipe.
You do remember last years Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake don’t you?
It’s one of my most popular cheesecake recipes!
So this year I wanted to make another really easy no bake cheesecake for you. And that’s where this no bake chocolate orange cheesecake comes in.
So let’s just get right on and talk more about this amazing no bake chocolate orange cheesecake….
Inspiration For This No Bake Chocolate Orange Cheesecake
I’ll admit this chocolate orange cheesecake has been one that’s on the list for a while, but I felt Christmas was the right time to bring it it you.
When I think of Christmas it always has to involve a Terry’s Chocolate Orange somewhere.
In fact I remember when I was just a mere lad that I got a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in my Christmas stocking every year and I’m not sure what Christmas would have been like if I hadn’t received one!
There’s just something unique about that combined taste of chocolate and orange together don’t you think? And here in this recipe I’ve added a little more “spice” by way of the orange liquer complimenting and coaxing out those amazing flavours even more.
Of course I’m not neccessarily advocating that if this is your family Christmas day dessert that you feed your kids copious amounts of orange liquer. So, you could in fact remove that element and to add more orange flavour just add some more orange zest.
But, if you’re not feeding this to any kids, feel free to indulge in a little more liquer if you so fancy folks. After all it’s Christmas and you’ve got to indulge a little sometimes don’t you? 😉
How To Make Chocolate Orange Cheesecake
- First make the simple biscuit base with crushed chocolate bourbon biscuits (or chocolate Oreos) and melted butter.
- Whilst allowing time for the base to set in the fridge make the delicious creamy filling.
- Whisk the double cream then fold in the cream cheese, orange zest and orange liquer.
- When the base has set spoon the creamy filling over the base and smooth it down. Then place the cheesecake back in the fridge.
- Take the cheesecake out of the fridge when set, and 20 minutes prior to serving. Then decorate with the terry’s chocolate orange segments.
Tips For Making This Chocolate Orange Cheesecake
- What is the best kind of tin to make this cheesecake in? This is the deep round cake tin with loose base (affiliate link) that I use in the making of this cheesecake and many of my other cheesecakes too. I recommend this.
- When whisking the double cream you want it to be just becoming stiff, forming soft peaks. Don’t make it too stiff and don’t let it be too runny either.
- How long do you need to chill this no bake chocolate orange cheesecake for? Ideally it needs to be chilled in the fridge for at least 4 – 6 hours, or better still, overnight.
- What if the cheesecake hasn’t set? No problems, just put it in the freezer for a couple of hours (not too long keep checking it) until it has set and you are ready to decorate it with the orange segments and serve.

No Bake Chocolate Orange Cheesecake
Cheesecake Base :-
- 200 g Chocolate Bourbon biscuits
- 100 g unsalted butter
Cheesecake Filling :-
- 300 ml light double cream
- 250 g low fat cream cheese
- Finely grated zest of one large orange
- 50 ml orange liqueur e.g. Cointreau
Cheesecake Topping :-
- Chocolate orange segments
Cheesecake Base :-
- Grease a round loose bottom 15cm/6" cake tin, and place a piece of greaseproof paper around the bottom.
- Crush the biscuits by placing them all in a bag and bashing them up to a breadcrumb consistency using a rolling pin, or use a food processor
- Gently melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat and stir in the crushed biscuits, ensuring they absorb all of the melted butter.
- Spoon the biscuit crumbs into the cake tin. Use a metal spoon and your fingers to press the biscuit crumbs down firmly and evenly. Chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour until set.
Cheesecake Filling :-
- Whisk the 300ml double cream in a bowl until it begins to stiffen and then fold in the cream cheese, orange zest and orange liqueur.
- Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the biscuit base. Make sure that there are no air bubbles by smoothing the top of the cheesecake with a palette knife or metal spoon.
- Place the cheesecake into the fridge to chill for 4 to 6 hours. If you can make this the day before and chill overnight, then even better.
Cheesecake Topping :-
- Before serving, remove from fridge for 20 minutes or so to allow the cheesecake to return to room temperature, remove from the tin and decorate with the chocolate orange segments.
