How to make white chocolate, prosecco and strawberry oreo cheesecake

This cheesecake is FULL of ALL my favourite things so eating this was an absolute dream come true.

My boyfriend made this cheesecake for me as part of his romantic Valentine’s Day meal and boy oh boy did he impress! He combined all of the things I love – prosecco, white chocolate, Oreos, strawberries and cheese – in one heavenly dessert!


He said he took inspiration from different cheesecakes he’s made before to create my perfect one.

I just had to share the recipe with you! 1) so I can remember how to make it myself and 2) so all of you can enjoy this beautiful experience too!

Recipe

Ingredients

  • Punnet of strawberries (remove stalk leaves)
  • 425g cream cheese
  • 1/2 bottle of prosecco
  • 400ml whipping cream
  • I bar white choc
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packs original Oreos
  • A tbsp of melted butter
  • Grated white choc on top


Steps

  1. In a mixing bowl add the strawberries to the prosecco and leave to soak overnight
  2. In a food processor blend the Oreos in small batches before stirring in melted butter
  3. Press the biscuit base into your cheesecake dish
  4. Use the food processor or electric whisk to mix the whipping cream before folding in the cream cheese
  5. Add sugar
  6. Fold in melted white chocolate (give it a few second to cool before pouring in)
  7. Get your soaking fruit from the fridge and slice up the largest strawberries to stick around the outside of your filling
  8. You can now layer the Oreo base with this chocolatey cheesy topping
  9. Leave to set for atleast 3 hours
  10. Chop the rest of the soaked strawberries into small chunks and place on top of the cheesecake
  11. Finally decorate with grated white chocolate and serve with a shot of prosecco (if you haven’t finished drinking the bottle already!)

I hope you all enjoy this delicious dessert as much as I did. My boyfriend definitely blew me away with it….and I may have got a little too excited about this compared to receiving my flowers and roses… but he doesn’t need to know that. I can’t help that I have the biggest sweet tooth ever!

Super easy Valentine’s Day cocktails

Everyone loves a cocktail… well it’s obvious that I definitely do after having at least two everyday last week. Gotta love a happy hour!

Well if you fancy having a go at making your own tipple for this Valentine’s Day – whether your having all the girls over for GALentine’s Day or having a romantic night in – this recipe really is no effort at all and tastes fab πŸ‘Œ


Ingredients

  • A bottle of Cava, sparkling rose or Prosecco – how fancy is this gold bottle I found in Aldi for just Β£4.90?! Tesco also currently have an offer on Rose and Brut Cava for Β£4.50
  • Frozen strawberries – 2 large ones per glass serving
  • Orange juice
  • Honey to sweeten to taste
  • Fresh strawberries, raspberries or sliced orange/grated peel to decorate

Recipe steps

  1. In a blender mix 16 frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup of orange juice and slowly pour in small amounts of wine after short blends
  2. Once the mixture is a smooth slushy consistency – taste for sweetness and add honey if desired
  3. Pour into champagne glasses and serve with a fruity decoration if you wish

1 bottle will make 8 glasses so you may want to get in a couple.
