Cheesecake is my favourite dessert EVER. My sister makes this absolutely incredible summer fruit one and we have it at Christmas and I don’t think anything will ever beat it.
I was planning to make a cheesecake and was unsure what I wanted to put in it. I was craving Malteasers SO badly so I thought, why not give Malteaser cheesecake a try. And I’m extremely glad I did. My oh my.
I just used a basic cheesecake recipe.
- 200g digestive biscuits
- 75gz unsalted butter
- 400g full-fat cream cheese
- 150ml double cream
- 200g icing sugar, sifted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Malteasers ( I used a 103g bag)
Put your digestive biscuits into a sealable bag. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin until they’re in small fine pieces.
Melt the butter in a pan. Tip the biscuit crumbs into the butter and mix together until combined. Press the crumb mix into the bottom of a loose-bottomed tin. Pop your base in the fridge whilst you go ahead to make the topping.
Using an electric whisk, combine the cream cheese and double cream in a large mixing bowl. Add the icing sugar a little at a time. Finally, mix in the vanilla essence.
Put the Malteasers in the sealable freezer bag. Just like the digestive biscuits, use a rolling pin to break them apart. Fold half of the Malteasers into the cream cheese mix.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the biscuit base and smooth the top with a spatula. Decorate as you wish. I sprinkles the remaining bashed Malteasers over the top with more Malteasers round the outside.
Pop your cheesecake in the fridge for at least four hours. And enjoy!
