For the Biscuit Base!
Blitz your Biscuits in a food processor to a fine crumb, or bash them up till they are a fine crumb.
Melt your butter until liquid, and then mix in with the biscuits.
Pour into the bottom of an 8"/20cm Deep Springform Tin, and refrigerate for now.
For the Cheesecake Filling
Melt your Chocolate carefully over a Bain Marie, or in a microwave until smooth. Leave to cool slightly.
Add your Cream Cheese, Vanilla and Icing Sugar to a mixer with a whisk attachment, and whisk till smooth.
Add the melted chocolate to the Cream Cheese mix and whisk till combined!
Add in your Double Cream, and whisk again till thick and delicious. The thicker the better, but be careful not to over whisk.
Fold through your crushed Mini Eggs, and pour/spread onto the biscuit base.
Refrigerate your Cheesecake for 5-6 hours, or preferably overnight.
For the Decoration
Melt your Chocolate and drizzle over the cheesecake.
Whip together your Double Cream, Icing Sugar, and Cocoa powder and pipe little swirls around the edge of the cheesecake
Decorate with Mini Eggs and Sprinkles, or however you please!
This recipe is based on my
Mini Egg Cheesecake
- just made chocolatey!
This beauty will last in the fridge for 3 days once made!
You can use dark or milk in the cheesecake filling, I wouldn't recommend white chocolate as it will be incredibly sweet.
The cocoa powder in the whipped cream is optional!
You can swap the mini eggs out for the Galaxy Golden Eggs, M&M eggs, etc!
The colour from the Mini Eggs can ooze into the mixture slightly, but it doesn't affect the taste.
