Step 2

Combine both bowls, carefully folding in the cream until you get a thick consistency that holds its shape. Once you are happy with the mixture, take the chocolate spread and place spoonfuls of the spread on top of the mixture. Carefully begin to mix the chocolate spread into the cheesecake batter, until the mixture begins to ripple.

Step 3

Take your fresh raspberries and carefully slice them in half. gently spoon a big dollop of the cheesecake mixture into the centre of each shortbread oval, then place the cut raspberries around the edge of each shortbread, placing the cut edge facing outwards.

Finally, place a second shortbread oval on top to create a sandwich effect. Press down gently to slowly push the mixture between the raspberries to fill in any gaps.

Once you have completed all your cheesecake bites, place them into the fridge for a couple of hours (best left overnight) for the mixture to set. Then enjoy!
