This Gluten Free Chocolate Layer Cheesecake was made for a family BBQ, I rarely do chocolate baking or puddings, I’m more of a carrot/fruit cake person myself but these types of recipes always impress so ideal for celebrations and gatherings. I used biscuits I brought from Aldi recently during National Coeliac Awareness Week, shame they don’t stock gluten free all year round, think they’re missing a trick there! Having made this with white and milk chocolate (I had the kiddies in mind) I’m interested to do this again but with more adult flavours. I’m thinking 80% chocolate and an intense orange chocolate, or maybe even chilli chocolate? Let me know if you experiment and how it goes, I’d love to see pictures, you can post them to the Glutarama Facebook page.
