Trifecta Chocolate Cheesecake Slice

I've never made cheesecake using condensed milk. Some of you are probably thinking 'WAHHH??' others are probably like 'yeah so?'. Well I wanted to know what I was missing out on, so this weekend I made a white chocolate cheesecake on a milk chocolate filling on a dark chocolate base, the trifecta of chocolates!

I wasn't completely overwhelmed by the result of the condensed milk cheesecake, i've made better, but it still turned out nice and tasted great. It was a bit softer and runnier than other cheesecakes i've made which can be a bit frustrating when getting it out of the tin, but hey it's still delicious!

I altered a recipe for Rum n Raisin slice from my Nestle cookbook for the base and chocolate layer and a recipe for cookies and cream cheesecake for the cheesecake layer. The white chocolate cheesecake layer is so versatile you can add just about anything to it to create a completely new cheesecake.
