DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  • To make the base:.
  • Mix the cookie crumbs with the melted butter and pat into the bottom of a 26 cm diameter springform pan.
  • Place in the oven to "set" for about 7 minutes.
  • Remove and set aside to cool.
  • To make the filling base:.
  • Beat all the ingredients together until well blended.
  • Pour half into a large, 4 cup measure cup, pour the other half into another 4 cup measuring cup. Alternatively, you can use jugs, pitchers, whatever is available, as long as it has a handle and a spout.
  • Melt the white chocolate chips together with the cream and stir to blend.
  • Add the cornflour and stir again.
  • Add this mixture into one of the cheese filling jugs. Stir to blend.
  • Melt the dark chocolate chips together with the cream and stir to blend.
  • Add this mixture into the other of the cheese filling jugs. Stir to blend.
  • Okay, here comes the fun part --
  • Carefully pour a portion of the white chocolate filling into the middle of the crust.
  • Now carefully (I mean CAREFULLY) pour a portion of the dark chocolate filling into the middle of the white filling.
  • Now CAREFULLY pour some of the white chocolate filling into the dark chocolate filling.
  • Now CAREFULLY pour some of the dark chocolate filling -- okay you get the picture?.
  • Keep this up until you have a series of concentric circles. Again, I cannot mention it enough, do this carefully so you don't mess up the circles.
  • Very carefully transfer this to the oven.
  • Bake at 200 degrees C for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the oven down to 120 degrees C and bake for a further 60 minutes.
  • Turn the oven off and let the cheesecake hang out in the cooling oven for another 2 hours.
  • Transfer to the refrigerator and let it hang out there for another 24 hours.
  • When you cut slices you will have the most gorgeous white and dark "zebra-ed" portions.
