Milk Chocolate Cream Cheese Tart

I got really excited when walking down the health aisle at our local supermarket. You see, they had sugar free digestive biscuits. I have never even tasted a ‘normal’ one before but I knew that I wanted to make a cheese cake using them as soon as I saw these. In South Africa we have a lovely coconut flavoured biscuit (cookie for my American readers) that we would usually use for a base for cheese cakes. I obviously cannot use that and so I often make my own biscuits to make the base. Now, here was a ready made biscuit for me to try. And surprisingly (to me) they are a really tasty biscuit. I can really see myself getting stuck into eating them in one sitting if left to my own devices! I was given a recipe card from my mom for a Kiri raspberry and white chocolate tart and used that as inspiration for my recipe. Kiri cheese is a childhood favourite of mine and there is always a box of the small cream cheese blocks in my fridge at work. I am not sure if this cheese is available world wide and so I used a standard cream cheese to make this recipe for a milk chocolate cream cheese tart, to ensure that it can be replicated no matter where you live. The cream cheese ensures that the milk chocolate is not too sweet – perfect for me!
