I was able to try Tescos free from digestives using a coupon and thought I'd get creative with them!

Put the cranberries in a saucepan with the sugar, orange juice, zest and water, bring to the boil and simmer gently for about 5 minutes. Dilute the cornflour in a little water and stir into the cranberries. Continue simmering for a few minutes until the cranberries are just coated in the 3-4 tablespoons of the thickened liquid, then remove from the heat and Set aside to cool.

Crush the biscuits and mix with the melted butter. Press into 4 individual ramekin dishes.

whip the double cream and sugar until quite stiff. In a clean bowl soften the cream cheese then add the whipped cream. Carefully fold in half of the cranberry mixture and half the chestnuts to form a rippled effect.

spoon the mix on to the biscuit bases in ramekins. Leave to set in the fridge for 2-3 hours then top with remaining cranberries and chestnuts
