Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake Jam Jar Dessert

If you like getting messy then this recipe from is for you:


300g unflavoured cream cheese

One table spoon of cocoa powder

A handful of ginger biscuits

One table spoon of caster sugar

300 ml of double cream

Cherry compote


Mix your cream cheese with the cocoa powder until you have a smooth, velvety texture. Don’t mix it too much, you want some of that chocolate layering to show up when you fill the jam jar.

Place the ginger biscuits into a plastic bag or in a teacloth and smash them (HULK SMASH!) until they’re small enough to use as a biscuit base. I like to use irregular shapes so don’t feel you need to powder them.

Thirdly, whisk the double cream and caster sugar until it turns into whipped frothy peaks.

Now the fun part – layer your three flavours into the jam jar. I started with biscuit base then compote then cocoa and again before topping with the whipped cream and sprinkling with cocoa powder.

The ribbon is optional!

Let me know if you try it!
