Ingredients

450g cream cheese
3 bananas
200ml whipping cream
3 sheets of gelatin
Castor sugar to taste
150g cooking chocolate
1 pkt digestive biscuits
150g unsalted butter

Method

Place the digestives in a large mixing bowl and crush with a rolling pin till they are the same texture as sand. Melt the butter and add to the biscuits. Take flan ring (approximately 10 inches across) and place on a flat tray and pour in the biscuit mixture. Press down firmly with a spoon and place in fridge. Put cream cheese in food processor with beating attachment. Mix for 20 seconds and add some of the sugar. Beat again and then taste. Keep doing this till the cheese is quite sweet. Remove from processor and place in a bowl. Wash out food processor and put bananas in. Beat them till they are smooth and fold into cheese. Melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Leave to cool a little then mix into cheese and bananas. Cover gelatine leaves with cold water till they go soft. Take a small amount of cream and warm gently. Dissolve gelatin in cream and pour into mix, stirring constantly. With the rest of the cream, semi whip it and fold into the cheese mix. Pour this onto biscuit base and chill for 4-5 hours
