This recipe offers a sophisticated twist to traditional cheesecakes! it adds the deep, special touch of a dark chocolate biscuit base and a chocolate chip cheesecake mixture to the mellow caramelised peaches. It would be good to use tinned peaches for this recipe rather than fresh ones, because the former offers the best balance of sweetness, sourness and softness.
