A creamy, sweet, and delicious no-bake Galaxy cheesecake with whipped cream, Galaxy chocolate, Galaxy minstrels and more!
Yeah, that’s correct… you read the title correctly, IT’S GALAXY CHEESECAKE TIME. I really have lost myself recently writing these intros, but I have been so excited about my recent recipes I just can’t help myself! This one in particular though… love a bit of Galaxy.
Galaxy chocolate is something that really hasn’t featured enough on my blog, and I said this when I made my giant Galaxy cookies, and I really haven’t sorted that out. I always crave my Galaxy Golden Egg cheesecake, but as that’s Easter themed, I wanted to post a basic Galaxy cheesecake recipe!
This beauty is a cheesecake of your Galaxy dreams, with a buttery biscuit base (Masterchef anyone?!), a creamy and sweet Galaxy cheesecake filling, and topped with my Jane’s Patisserie style decor… a drizzle of melted chocolate, cream swirls, and more chocolate.
I really can’t ever stay away from chocolate or cheesecake, and I think I have problems because of it. I honestly go through the supermarket shelves and just find more and more chocolate.
If someone came into my house and went into my baking cupboard, they really would be concerned for me… they are always FULL to the brim with treats for my bakes, and there is definitely too much there for just the regular person to eat.
I rarely ever find something out of date in my cupboards, but I am always hoarding and finding something on a deal and buying more! I’d bought some Galaxy chocolate when it had been on offer and sorta forgot about it, so when I went through them and realised it was still there all I could think was about making a cheesecake!
The thing about a cheesecake like this, is that it’s so smooth.. and so delicious. I don’t find a cheesecake like this too rich, as Galaxy chocolate for me is quite a light flavour, especially when mixed with the rest of the cheesecake’s ingredients!
I know a lot of people aren’t too much of a fan of the whipped cream on top of the cheesecakes, but I just think it look so pretty! All the decoration of a cheesecake is optional as always, so you can easily leave it out if you don’t fancy it!!
Galaxy is one of the most popular brands in the country (and world!) and I really am not surprised why. It has such an iconic taste, that is still suitably different to it’s main competitor! I absolutely adore both brands, but Galaxy can really take my fancy sometimes.. especially in cheesecake form.
I realise this cheesecake is relatively simple in comparison to some of my other ones, but after the success of my Milkybar cheesecake, I know you guys don’t mind it! Galaxy is THE ONE, and I know you guys will love this too! Enjoy! x
- 300 g digestives
- 150 g unsalted butter
- 250 g Galaxy chocolate
- 500 g full-fat cream cheese (room temp)
- 100 g icing sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 300 ml double cream
- 150 ml double cream
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
- 50 g Galaxy chocolate (melted)
- Galaxy Minstrels/chocolate
- Blitz the digestives in a food processor to a crumb. Melt the butter and add to the biscuits and mix in!
- Press down into the bottom of an 8”/20cm DEEP springform tin!
- Melt the Galaxy chocolate in a microwave in short bursts until fully melted – leave to cool slightly whilst doing the rest.
- With an electric mixer, whisk the cream cheese, vanilla and icing sugar until combined – add in the melted chocolate and whisk again until smooth.
- Pour in the liquid double cream and continue to whip the cream cheese/cream mixture until it thickens.
- Alternatively, whip the cream separately and fold through.
- Pour the mix on to the biscuit base, smooth over, cover, and chill in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours hours or preferably overnight.
- Remove the cheesecake from the tin - whip together the double cream and icing sugar to decorate the cheesecake with. Melt the 50g of Galaxy carefully to drizzle over the cheesecake.
- Decorate with the melted chocolate, the whipped cream, Minstrels, and sprinkles.
- This cheesecake will last for 3 days in the fridge!
- You can swap the Galaxy chocolate for a basic milk chocolate instead if you want to make it cheaper, but it won't be a Galaxy cheesecake then!
- I used Minstrels on the top as that's what I had, but you can use anything else Galaxy themed that you fancy!
- I used a 8"/20cm deep springform tin for this recipe!
