A Chocolate Rice Krispie Base, Chocolate Toffee Crisp Cheesecake filling, Chocolate Drizzle, Whipped Cream and even more Toffee Crisp goodness.
So there was this day, where I decided too splurge on £1 sweets at my local Asda as they were just so damn cheap. I obviously, got so carried away that I have far too much. HOWEVER, that means plenty of chocolatey sweet things to be able to bake with! I’ve had a go with a few different sweets recently such as with my Toblerone Fudge and my Terry’s Chocolate Orange Rocky Road and as they have been SO popular I knew another Chocolatey Sweet themed treat would be perfect. After seeing a recipe on Tastemade I knew I had to make my own version of a Toffee Crisp Cheesecake!
I wanted to make mine slightly differently however. For the base, I used a mixture of Rice Krispies and Cocoa Pops as they’re what I had in the cupboard, and instead of using a combination of Mars Bars and Butter for the base, I stuck to my delicious recipe of a mixture of Chocolate, Golden Syrup and Butter to make the dreamiest chocolate coating recipe for the Rice Krispie/Cocoa Pop base. The mixture originates from my Rocky Road and it has never failed me.. its SO GOOD.
I have been so excited to share this with you guys since I made it as its my first Toffee Crisp recipe on my blog and oh my days it was DELICIOUS. I adore Toffee Crisps in general as they’re blooming lovely and addictive, but when baked into other treats that they’re based around?! Even better. I did reduce the amount of Double Cream in this recipe to see how it would affect the taste and setting. It does make the mixture easier to make for those who struggle to whip it to a thick consistency, but it does make it slightly less creamy. For this particular one though, it works perfectly with only 150ml cream because of the flavourings and the different base!
For the actual cheesecake filling I thought it was best to use a Milk Chocolate Cheesecake base as it makes it sweet, but not overly sweet. I thought folding through pieces of Toffee Crisp, like I do in my No-Bake Honeycomb Crunchie Cheesecake for example, would be better compared to trying to melt it down to create the flavour. You could add in a bit of carnations caramel (e.g. No-Bake Mars Bar Cheesecake) to make it slightly more flavoured, but I think having the Rice Krispie base, with the filling as is, and a piece of Toffee Crisp on top is ideal.
I hope you all love this recipe, enjoy!!
This Delicious Cheesecake Serves 10-12 easily!
Rice Krispie Base
100g Rice Krispies/Cocoa Pops
150g Milk Chocolate
75g Unsalted Butter
50g Golden Syrup
500g Philadelphia Cream Cheese/Mascarpone
100g Icing Sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract
200g Milk Chocolate
150ml Double Cream
5x38g Toffee Crisp Bars, chopped
50g Melted Chocolate
3x38g Toffee Crisp Bars, chopped into 12 pieces
150ml Double Cream + 1tbsp Icing Sugar, whipped
1) To make the cheesecake base – melt the butter and golden syrup together in a small pan until melted and starting to bubble. Add in the chocolate and beat until smooth, if the chocolate hasn’t fully melted then briefly put it over the heat again till it has!
2) In a Large Bowl, Mix the Chocolate/Butter Mixture together with the Rice Krispies or Cocoa Pops until combined well. It can take a bit of welly, so stick with it! Best to use a large spatula when doing this. Tip the combined mixture into a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin and press down firmly – chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
3) To make the cheesecake filling – Melt the 200g of Milk Chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, stirring gently or microwave in short bursts until fully melted – leave to cool briefly whilst doing the rest.
4) With a stand mixer, whip the Cream Cheese, Icing Sugar and Vanilla until smooth. Add in the slightly cooled Melted chocolate, and whip again till smooth. Pour in the Double Cream and continue to whip until thick. Check it occasionally and scrape down the sides until its all combined!
5) Fold through the Chopped up Toffee Crisp Bars and then add on top of the Rice Krispie Base! Leave to set in the fridge for 5-6 hours, or preferably over night!
6) To decorate the cheesecake – Remove the Cheesecake from the tin. As I use Springform tins, it comes away from the sides itself. If you a struggling, run a thin sharp knife around the edge. I then use a thin metal spatula to get my cheesecake off the base. Drizzle 50g of Melted Milk Chocolate over the cheesecake, and add some grated chocolate/sprinkles if you wish.
7) Pipe on some whipped sweetened double cream and then add a piece of Toffee Crisp for each slice and enjoy!
Tips and Ideas
I recommend using a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin in this recipe!
You could easily half the recipe used to make a smaller cheesecake, I prefer to make this size because it is always eaten so quickly and is so delicious! You can serve this with a splash of cream or just on its own – its utterly delicious and so easy to make!
This recipe will last covered in the fridge for 3-4 days! 🙂
You can of course use a regular biscuit base for the Cheesecake instead of a Rice Krispie Base by using 300g Digestives and 150g Butter! Blitz the biscuits to a fine crumb, and add in the butter melted and combine.
