Soooo ITS NEARLY EASTER AGAIN! I do realise its still February when I am posting this new recipe, but its only just over a month till Easter so posting my second Easter related recipe of the year is totally acceptable… right? I really hope so otherwise I am screwed.. but just look at it!

I decided from the off that after my No-Bake Mini Egg Cheesecake and my No-Bake Creme Egg Cheesecake recipes that I NEEDED to do a Caramel one. So, Cadburys Carmel it is. You can buy Galaxy Caramel eggs around Easter time, but I do love a Cadburys Caramel Egg quiiiiittteeee a lot so I went for them.

You can easily swap it for chopped up Cadburys Caramel Bars instead so you can make this recipe year round, or even use the Caramel Buttons. But to be honest, look how gooey and delicious the Caramel Eggs look. Slight sugar overload but YUMMYYYY.

I went for a plain digestive biscuit base for this one, but you can easily make it chocolatey by adding in 25g of Cocoa Powder but I wanted plain. But then I did go for a Chocolate style cheesecake filling. Of course I did use Cadburys so it was a dream, but you can use any chocolate brand really! Supermarket own, Lindt, Galaxy etc!

Some of my other cheesecakes that are based around something Caramel like either use a Caramel filling such as my Rolo one, or a combined flavour of Chocolate and Caramel but I wanted just Chocolate for this to get that real hit of Cadburys goodness. A Caramel Cheesecake is a dream on its own, but a Chocolate one with Cadbury’s Caramel chunks inside is INSANE.

I do realise that it looks like a sugar overload for every slice, but realistically its not that much for one slice! I do add on a drizzle of Caramel for decoration (I used a smidge from a Carnation Caramel tin) but this is an optional thang. You can easily use Chocolate though as its easier!

Often people ask how I drizzle my ‘drizzle’s on and I use simple small disposable piping bags and its that simple. The Tala Disposable Piping Bags (affiliate link) are PERFECT for all things drizzle and for small amounts. You just need to snip the end off and then its perfect. You can of course use a spoon, but I like my drizzles neat and easily done!

I do tend to go a bit over kill on my decoration, but I do like to make a showstopper out of a dessert. This recipe can easily be switched up and be made to be similar like my No-Bake Caramel Rolo Cheesecake, and vice versa. However, CADBURY’S IS DELICIOUS. But anyway, I hope you love this one! Enjoy! x

Ingredients

Biscuit Base

  • 300 g Digestives
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter/Stork

Cheesecake Filling

  • 500 g Mascarpone
  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 250 g Milk Chocolate
  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 200-400 g Cadbury's Caramel Pieces

Decoration

  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 50 g Caramel
  • 6-8 Cadbury's Caramel Eggs, halved/chopped
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

For the Base:

  • Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a small crumb, melt the butter, and add it to the biscuits. Pulse a few times until it is combined well. 
  • Tip into a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin and press down firmly – chill in the refrigerator whilst you do the rest!

For the Filling:

  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (double boiler) stirring gently or microwave in short bursts until fully melted – leave to cool slightly whilst doing the rest. (Mine usually takes 2 minutes in the microwave!)
  • With an electric mixer (I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer, or an Electric Hand Whisk) Mix the Cream Cheese, icing sugar, vanilla extract together until smooth. 
  • Pour in the melted chocolate and Whip again until combined. Mix with a spatula quickly to make sure its all combined well.
  • Whilst slowly whisking, pour in the liquid double cream and continue to whip the mixture until very thick – It will hold it self when finished whipping. You can alternatively whip the cream separately and fold it through the cheesecake/chocolate mixture.
  • Chop up the Cadbury's Caramel Bars/Buttons/Eggs and fold through the cheesecake mix – pour onto the biscuit base and spread evenly. Leave to set in the fridge, covered, for 5-6 hours, or preferably over night!

For the Decoration:

  • Whip together the double cream and icing sugar until thick but smooth. 
  • Drizzle over some caramel sauce. Using a Piping bag and a 2D Closed Star Piping Tip, pipe on the cream to decorate.
  • Place a half of a Cadbury's Caramel Egg on each swirl, and add some chopped bits into the middle along with some sprinkles!

Notes

You can use Philadelphia Cream Cheese instead of Mascarpone - I just happened to use Mascarpone this time!
If it looks like your cheesecake isn’t setting, or its a but sloppy, or you’re even not sure.. try it anyway. Try to set the mix anyway! If it still doesn’t set, freeze it and have an Ice Cream Cheesecake!
I recommend using a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin in this recipe, and a 2D Closed Star Piping Tip for decoration! (Affiliate links)
I always set my cheesecakes in the fridge overnight otherwise they risk not being set enough! I would also 100% recommend using Full-Fat cream cheese/Mascarpone and cream if you’re going to be taking it out of a tin, and not setting it in cups for example as it needs the fat content to set! 
This Cheesecake will last covered in the fridge for 3 days!
I use Cadbury's Caramel Eggs that I have refrigerated overnight to decorate as its near Easter time when I am posting this recipe, and refrigerated ones are much easier to chop. You can use the bar chopped up, or the buttons it you wished to decorate.

    Can you use Galaxy caramel for this and if so would you change the 250g milk chocolate for 250g Galaxy chocolate?

      You can try caster sugar, but it could potentially leave a slightly grainy texture!

    Made lots of your cheesecakes before and loved them! This was the first with mascarpone and it didn’t work, whisked the filling and it was going fine, but just before it got quite thick enough it started to separate and go lumpy. What have I done wrong? Thanks

      It just means it’s split from over whisking – you can try and heat the mixture over a Bain Marie, and leave it too cool and then re-whisk. Sometimes mascarpone takes less time to whisk as the water content is different x

    Hi Jane,
    If I leave the milk chocolate out of the cheese cake filling and make a vanilla filling, would the measurements of the other ingredients work? Or would i be best following the cream egg cheese cake filling and just replace creams eggs with caramel ones? Also would you recommend Mascarpone or Philadelphia for this?

      It would work as it is, but you could also do it like the cream egg one if you’d prefer! And honestly either work just as well as each other, I just prefer Mascarpone in general lately!

    Hi Jane.
    After the success of your salted caramel cheesecake (voted best cheesecake ever) I’ve just made this cheesecake, gonna decorate it tomorrow. Before I Do, can you give me any tips on cutting the caramel eggs? I’m scared 😨

      Chill them first, and then use a large sharp knife. Cut along the join line!
