You will need: 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Crust:


  • 240ml double cream, softly whipped
  • 225ml cream cheese
  • 4 gelatine leaves, soaked in 120ml water
  • 120g milk chocolate
  • 120g white chocolate


Chocolate Chip Gookie Dough Crust:

Set 60g of the Gookie Dough aside for later.

Use 2 thin strips of greaseproof paper to go across the bottom of the pan to help with removing later.

Use the remaining Gookie Dough to line the pan. Set aside in the freezer to firm up for 30 minutes, then line with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans.

Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the baking beans and paper, then return to the oven for a further 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Set aside to cool.


Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese with a wooden spoon until it is soft.

Softly, whip the cream so it thickens but the peaks don’t hold their shape.

Add the soaked gelatine leaves to the boiling water and mix through the mixture.

Then, divide the mixture in 2.

In 1 batch, add the melted white chocolate.

In the other batch, add the melted milk chocolate.

To assemble: 

Place large spoonfuls of the chocolate filling into the cooled Gookie loaf pan in a random pattern, then drag the back of the spoon through to create a marbled pattern.

Roll the reserved Gookie Dough into approximately 10 small balls, and drop 5 of these into the mixture.

Place in the freezer to set (for a couple of hours), then decorate with the remaining 5 Gookie Dough balls.

Remove from the freezer and defrost for 20 minutes before slicing into the 10 and serving.
