  • 2 clementines, unpeeled and sliced into thin rounds

    Crush the biscuits and mix with the melted butter. Press into the base of the tin and let set in the fridge.

    Meanwhile, gently melt the chocolate and chocolate thins together. Put the sugar, soft cheese, mascarpone and eggs in a mixing bowl and pour in the melted chocolate. Beat well with a spoon. Gently tap the bowl on the work surface to remove air bubbles.
