Cooleswan, white chocolate cheesecake on a dark chocolate base, blackberry coulis

I have a friend who has lately taken to emptying her drinks cabinet and giving me what she doesn’t like. One evening she was coming over for dinner and arrived with a big bottle of Coole Swan liqueur. I poured some into a smaller bottle and gave the rest back to her.

I’m not a fan of Bailey’s or sweet liqueurs but they can be great in recipes.  I Googled a few recipes and patched one together.

It can be “deconstructed” or served traditionally and the coulis changed to suit the fruit in season.  It’s really, really easy to make and sets quickly.

12 digestive biscuits crushed (200g approx)

Mix the crushed biscuits and melted butter, add the cocoa if required. Press into a 20cm tin with a removable base and chill. 

1 pack of marscapone (250g)
200 ml of whipped cream
200g melted white chocolate
4 tablespoons of Coole Swan

For the coulis
200g seasonal fruit
