Twix Cheesecake!

A No-Bake Biscuit Base, with a Caramel Twix Cheesecake Filling, Chocolate Ganache top, and oodles more Twix!

This is one of those Cheesecakes, that I know people will love. I wouldn’t say a Twix is the most popular ‘chocolate’ out there, but its such a constant and regular one, that everyone knows about them and has eaten one. Biscuit, Caramel and Chocolate.. YUMMY. Is it really a sweet? Or is a biscuit? It’s hard to say as its kinda both.. but its found in the confectionary section in a supermarket so…

It is a cheesecake, thats basically come from morphing a few of my others all together. My Rolo Cheesecake was the second cheesecake on my blog ever, and still stands to be one of the most popular posts on my blog to this day. Mixing that, with my new Jaffa cake Cheesecake, and you have a winner.

I basically went for the same filling ideas as my Rolo Cheesecake because I just love it so unbelievably much. A mix of Cream Cheese, Icing Sugar, Caramel and Double Cream gets you a delicious and creamy caramel base of a cheesecake, and I adore it. Mix in the Twix bits, instead of Rolos, and yummmm.

It’s different to the Rolo one, because the Crunch of the biscuit from the Twix. The caramel bits ooze out, and its so yummy. No, the Cheesecake filling bit isn’t melted down Twix, because that just wouldn’t even slightly work, but its still delicious. You can use Twix for the biscuit base if you wish, but I just think its easier and cheaper to do it this way.

For this cheesecake I bought the multipack of 16 bars of Twix to make it, and I didn’t need any more Twix. Half for the filling, half for the top. I did decided to decorate it slightly differently to my Rolo Cheesecake because otherwise it would have been a tad too similar… so I use the Ganache style from my Jaffa cake Cheesecake. I didn’t want to then add swirls of cream on top, so just scatter the Twix over instead.

I utterly adore this recipe because I do love a good Twix every now again. Like I’ve said, its such a staple chocolate bar that they’re sold everywhere, everyone knows about them, so why not make more from it. You can buy a Twix Cheesecake from the frozen section in some supermarkets, but this is much better. You know exactly what has gone into it, and its SO GOOD.

I am slightly obsessed with how this looks in the above picture, because I went a little drizzle crazy… but damn it looks fine. I like the contrast of how it looks between the biscuit, then the cheesecake filling, and then the topping. It looks quite contrasted, and so much caramel goodness.

I obviously like a chunky biscuit base because its nearly always the same thickness in all my recipes, but you can make it thinner if you wanted. You could use 200g of biscuits and 100g of butter for example. If you were using Twix biscuits on the base, you’d have to blitz it all up, and then add a small amount of butter to just bind it.

Ingredients

Biscuit Base

  • 300 g Digestives
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter/Stork (melted)

Cheesecake Filling

  • 500 g Full Fat Cream Cheese (phildelphia/mascarpone)
  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • 150 g Caramel (Carnations)
  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 200 g Twix (chopped quite small)

Ganache

  • 100 g Dark Chocolate
  • 100 ml Double Cream

Decorations

  • 200 g Twix (chopped quite small)
  • Caramel Drizzle

Instructions

For the Biscuit Base!

  • Blitz/Bash/Destroy your Biscuits into a fine crumb. I use a food processor, but you can use a bowl with a rolling pin for example as well. 
  • Mix in the Melted Butter as much as possible, and press down firmly into the bottom of an 8"/20cm Deep Springform Tin. 
  • Refrigerate for now. 

For the Cheesecake Filling!

  • In a Stand Mixer, or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, mix together the Cream Cheese, Icing Sugar and Caramel till smooth. 
  • Add in the Double Cream, and whisk again till combined and nice and thick.
  • Fold through the Twix bits, and then pour/spread onto the biscuit base. Refrigerate for a minimum of 5-6 hours, or preferably overnight. 

For the Ganache!

  • Add the Double Cream to a pan, and heat till just before boiling. 
  • Pour over the dark chocolate, (a glass bowl is good), and then leave to sit for 5 minutes. Its best to have the chocolate in quite small pieces so its easier for it to melt. 
  • After the five minute, give it a mix till smooth. 
  • Spread over the top of the cheesecake.

For the Decoration!

  • Once you have spread the ganache over the top, add on pieces of Twix, and add a drizzle of caramel. 
  • Let is set in the fridge again for about half an hour before serving! Enjoy! 

Notes

  • If you want a milk chocolate ganache instead of dark, use 150g of milk chocolate, and 75ml of double cream! 
  • 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! 
  • 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!
  • You can swap the Twix for something else if you wish!

    Hi

    We don’t have double cream where I live, just whipping cream which is about 34% fat. Will it work if I whip it to stiff peaks separately and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture so that I don’t accidentally split it ?

      Hey! Yes I would do that – whip separately! x

    Hi Jane, this looks delicious 😋! We don’t have carnations caramel where I live. What do you think is the best substitute for this to get the same taste as the twix caramel. Is it homemade caramel, caramel made by melting caramel fudge with cream, or dulce de leche? In my opinion dulce de leche has a less sweet taste and isn’t easy to work with for a drizzle on top. What would you recommend?

      I would say a homemade caramel sauce! I personally love dulce de leche so I would happily use that too, but I understand if you don’t want to because it can be more difficult!!

    Hi Jane, this recipe looks delicious!
    I’m not sure we have carnations caramel where I live, so I was wondering, if I could use boiled condensed milk instead – like dulce de Leche, or homemade caramel sauce?

    Hi, I am making your cheesecake, however where I live its only possible to get hold of whipping cream. I used this, cream started to thicken but still I wanted it more thick. Suddenly my cream turn into runny liquid. what have I done wrong, can it be saved with gelatin you think? Love your recepies

      So whipping cream in the UK at least is about 13-15% lower in fat compared to your double cream – this means it can often split quicker and won’t necessarily set as well! If the mixture is still smooth, it’s worth trying gelatine if you want to!

    How do you use the carnations caramel as a drizzle? Thanks. I have mine in the fridge waiting to be decorated! 🙂 xx

    Hi Jane, you are amazing :)!

    I have a question on the caramel; do you use just the tinned carnation caramel ready made or use condensed milk alla dulce de leche?

    Thanks!

    Hi Jane,

    If i wanted to make a smaller version of this, in a 4 inch tin for example, is it just as simple as usig half of the quantities of the ingredients?

    Additionally, I am going to substitute to white chocolate twix. Would it be possible to make a white chocolate ganache in the same way as the recipe?

    Thanks 🙂

      Hey! I actually think a 4″ tin would be 1/3 of the ingredients as it really is tiny (volumes are different to the width measurements!) and white chocolate ganache is similar, but still quite different. You need to use a 3:1 ratio of chocolate to cream instead of the 1:1 for the dark chocolate!

    I have tried this recipe by adapting it to a 10 inch tin however the cheesecake didn’t harden like shown in the picture, so when i cut it the slices were not presentable and the cheesecake was loose. Any idea what could have gone wrong?

      How much did you increase the recipe by? If it is larger (and a 10″ is usually 2/3 bigger recipe wise) it might take longer to set, or you just needed to whip it up more, or need gelatine if you’re not confident in whipping it up enough!

    • Laura McEvoy

      How much gelatine would you use? I’ve made this cheesecake a number of times….it’s my absolute fave…but no matter how long I whip for, it never sets properly. I always leave in the fridge overnight too x

      I’m afraid I have no idea as I have never had to use it for these type of cheesecakes other than alcoholic ones, sorry!

      Hi, I don’t really do much baking but really need to do this cheesecake as it looks so yummy. I would like to do make it in a 10” tin but I would just like more of a biscuit base. Could you tell me what the biscuit/butter ratio would be please?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 25, 2020 at 7:09 pm

      Hey! So typically for a 10″ tin, you need to use about 1.6x the recipe – but if you don’t want the cheesecake bit to be thicker, you could just use 1.6xish times the base! x

    Hi Jane! Your no bake cheesecakes look so lovely and delicious and I want to make one of them, but I didn’t find heavy cream in my country:(
    What is the substitution for heavy cream??

      Hiya! I’m not sure where you are – you basically need the fattiest liquid cream you have. Our double cream is 47% so its best, Americas Heavy Cream I believe is 35% so is alright, but anything between that is ideal, or you might need to use gelatine to help you set the cheesecake better. x

    Hi Jane! I have made this cheesecake a couple of times, but the cheesecake just doesn’t seem to set! I have made 4/5 of your other cheesecake recipes and never had this problem. I follow the recipe to the “t”. I always leave it in fridge overnight, but comes out too soft. Any ideas??
    Kind regards

      You just need to whip it up a bit more 🙌 if in doubt, chuck it in the freezer for an hour before serving.

      Ok, thankyou. How long would you say to whip it for? I have a kitchen aid and last time I must have whipped it for 4-5 mins. What speed do you use? By the way, regardless of the “softness” it’s my favourite cheesecake I’ve made by far!! It tastes amazing! I’m going to remake the new & improved bounty again soon! X

      I can’t say the exact time to whip for as it’s not quite exact as that, but its best to whip it, stir with a spatula a bit, and repeat till it gets thick. It shouldn’t take too long, but probably no longer than a few minutes. x

    Hi Jane
    Can I leave the Twix out of the actual cheesecake filling or will that ruin the recipe? (I just want to put the Twix’s on top)

    Thanks x

      Thanks so much for the reply! Will it upset the consistency of the cheesecake though? Will it still set? Shall I leave the caramel out to compensate? Im starting the mixture now and don’t want to waste the ingredients x

    • Jane's Patisserie
      August 25, 2018 at 1:15 pm

      It shouldn’t do! The twix bits are just extra tasty bits, they don’t affect the cheesecake mix. x

    August 2, 2018 at 2:18 pm

    Hi Jane! Another quick question….with the ganache, does it have to be dark chocolate, or could you use milk? Not a massive fan of dark chocolate, so just wondered if I could swap it 😊 x

    • Jane's Patisserie
      August 2, 2018 at 8:26 pm

      I wouldn’t advise milk chocolate as its not a straight swap. You need a 2:1 ratio of chocolate to cream instead of 1:1 like this. x

    August 2, 2018 at 6:54 am

    Hi Jane! Another delicious looking cake! I’m going to make this later on I think. When you do the chocolate ganache, do you leave the cheesecake in the tin? I always use a loose bottom tin for cheesecake and don’t want it getting stuck! Thank you.

      Thank you! I often do it in or out of the tin, honestly whatever happens! I don’t spread it right to the edges however so it never touches the tin and therefore doesn’t cause an issue 🙂 x
