Galaxy Cheesecake!

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I rarely ever find something out of date in my cupboards, but I am always hoarding and finding something on a deal and buying more!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

Ingredients

Biscuit Base

  • 300 g Digestives
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter

Cheesecake Filling

  • 250 g Galaxy Chocolate
  • 500 g Full-Fat Cream Cheese
  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 300 ml Double Cream

Decoration

  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 50 g Galaxy Chocolate (melted)
  • Galaxy Minstrels/Chocolate
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

Biscuit Base

  • 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!

Cheesecake Filling

  • 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 till 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.

Decoration

  • 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.

Notes

  • 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!

    Would I be able to do this in a 5inch tin? Would I 1/3 the recipe mix??

      Hey! So usually I say a mix makes about 12 – but cupcake cases can make them a bit smaller so maybe make half the mix?

    Hi Jane,

    How would you recommend drizzling the melted chocolate over the cheesecake to get the same effect you have?

    Ta,

    Hi, i have tried to make your galaxy cheesecake twice the first time i knew what I had done wrong and i whisked the cream into the mix with an electric mixer but this time i hand whisked it but the mix looks the same as when I done it with the electric mix and now i am worried it isn’t going to set again. The mixture looks more like a moose??
    Any tips on how to thicken the mix? Thanks

      Hiya – what do you think went wrong the first time? I mix the cream in with an electric whisk and it’s what I recommend doing! Making the mix by hand is a lot harder in my opinion to get the thickness. As it’s a no-bake mix, it sort of does look a bit like mousse before putting on the base! It might be good to watch one of my YouTube videos on making cheesecakes as I show exactly what I do! x

    Hi,
    My cheesecake seems more like mousse. How long would you recommend whipping it for?
    Also could I use mascarpone cheese instead?

      No-Bake cheesecakes are naturally softer than a baked cheesecake – but I can’t really recommend on timings as it very much depends on your mixer, the temperature of the room you are in, the brands of ingredients etc! I’ve got a few YouTube videos of making cheesecakes so that may help!

    Hi Jane! Tried this with Cadbury’s buttons over the Holidays and was amazing! Just wondering can you use store bought whipped cream or should you whip it yourself? Thanks!

      Don’t use store bought as it tends to be UHT so will sink after a short while!

    Hi Jane. Just wondering something. When I make a chocolate cheesecake and I pour the melted chocolate into the cream cheese mixture, some of the chocolate hardens. I’m trying to figure out why. What am I doing wrong. X

      Hiya! That means it’s seizing – It means the temperature variation between the chocolate and the cheesecake mix is too varied, so causes the chocolate to go straight back to a solid. Try either having the cream cheese mix more room temp, or the chocolate cooler to avoid it! x

    Hi,
    I have made a few cheesecakes from your website and all have been amazing and so easy to follow the recipe!
    Would I be able to add some pieces of galaxy chopped up into the cheesecake? Like the toblerone/dairy milk caramel cheesecakes?
    Thank you
    Hayley

      It really can vary – if I am making them just for me or photos, I tend to use straight from the fridge. When I’m filming them, it will sit out for a little while, but probably only about 10-15 minutes before being used!

    Love this recipe but I think I’m doing something wrong as it just doesn’t set, it’s more mousse cake??

      If the mixture is still lovely and smooth, it’s just not whipped up enough is all!
