Step 2Brush the rim and top quarter of the outside of the cob with the melted milk chocolate (125g milk chocolate, melted). Sprinkle with the chopped biscuits (100g plain chocolate biscuits, finely crushed) to coat. Set aside to set. Repeat in sections to completely cover the cob (see tip). Set aside to set.
Step 3Meanwhile, place the cream cheese (750g cream cheese, at room temperature), cream (300ml ctn thickened cream) and sugar (50g (1/4 cup) caster sugar) in a food processor. Process until smooth. Add the white chocolate (180g white chocolate, melted) and vanilla (1 tsp vanilla extract). Process until smooth.
Step 4Place 1/2 cupful cheesecake mixture in a bowl and add the food colouring (Yellow liquid food colouring, to tint) to tint yellow. Place in the fridge until required. Pour the remaining white chocolate mixture into the cob. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.
Step 5Use the back of a spoon to make an indent in the centre of the white chocolate mixture. Spoon the yellow cream cheese mixture into the indent. Top with the Creme Eggs (Cadbury Creme Eggs, to serve) and Pocky (Pocky Chocolate Flavour, to serve) to decorate.
When decorating the outside and the rim of the cob with chocolate and biscuits, it is easiest to work in sections. If you brush the whole cob with chocolate, some parts of the chocolate will set before you get to sprinkling with biscuits.
