level of difficulty
The Cashew Nuts need to be soaked overnight in water. Just make sure the water is covering the Nuts.
To make the base line a cake tin with grease proof paper.
In a food processor/blender, add in all of the base ingredients and whizz up on high until like breadcrumbs.
Firmly press the mixture into the lined cake tin and pop into the freezer.
To make the filling drain the cashew nuts and pop them into a food processor/blender along with the coconut cream, melted coconut oil, dessiccated coconut, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Allow to blend for 5 - 8 minutes on high until smooth. There will be some texture due to the coconut.
Pour the creamy coconut layer onto the base and pop back into the freezer to harden. This will take around 30 minutes.
Once the cheesecake is firm, using a bain-marie, melt the cooking chocolate until silky smooth. Pour the chocolate onto the cheesecake and level out with a metal spoon. Pop back into the freezer to set. This will take around 25 minutes.
Once the chocolate has set, now you can decorate your cheesecake.
