Can I use chocolate digestives as a cheesecake base?

I've got an American recipe for a chocolate brûlée cheesecake I want to make for Easter Sunday, the recipe said 'dark chocolate biscuits' so I bought dark choc digestives, but now I'm wondering how that will work? Did they mean something like Oreos or borboun creams with the cream scraped out?

They make a lovely base.

Yes, they will be fine.

I have a cheesecake recipe which uses bourbon biscuits for the base (filling and all). And it's lovely. So I don't see why the choc digestives wouldn't work. I'd certainly give it a try grin

Yes but put them in the fridge for a bit before you crumble them. If the chocolate is at room temperature it may stop the biscuits from crumbling properly but if it is cold it will be brittle.

Do you have the link to the recipe or could you take a screenshot? It sounds divine! 🤤

I did this once by mistake.

I will never use plain digestives for cheesecake base again. Chocolate digestives make a bloody A Ma Zing base!
