MALTESERS NO BAKE CHEESECAKE

I know that Christmas is well and truly over now but I couldn’t not share my no-bake cheesecake recipe from the big day. I contemplated over which festive chocolate to put in it this year after my successful chocolate orange cheesecake last year but after a while I finally decided on Maltesers after standing in front of all the chocolate and biscuit gift sets in the supermarket for a good 10 minutes. Maltesers are such a classic chocolate treat to receive around Christmas and on birthdays, theres always a sharer box close by (who are we kidding? my box) so it’s a recipe that will go down no matter the occasion, or just because you fancy it. This recipe is of course a no-bake cheesecake, as if you ask me, its the easiest and most fail-proof way to make a cheesecake and most importantly: it’s filled with AND covered in tasty Maltesers. Even with a family full on Christmas dinner it went down a TREAT.

STEP 1 | Blitz the cookies/biscuits in a food processor until completely crumbed.

STEP 2 | Melt the butter (I did mine in the microwave) and add it to the crumbed biscuits. Mix until the consistency is a damp-sandy mixture and press into your cheesecake tin using your hands or the back of a spoon. (I personally like to place some clingfilm across the bottom to make it easier to move around afterwards) Place it into the fridge to chill until later.

STEP 3 | Whisk the cream cheese, extract and icing sugar until its completely mixed together. I always use my Morphy Richard’s standing mixer to do this.

STEP 4 | Whilst whisking add in the double cream and leave it to mix until the mixture has turned into a much thicker consistency, you should use a higher setting for this. Once you are happy with the thick like consistency you can leave it at that and finish by decorating… or if you want to do what we did you can add a handful of crushed Maltesers and mix thoroughly with a spoon.

STEP 5 | Pour the cheesecake filling over your biscuit base and spread it over until you’re happy. Pop it in the fridge to set for around four hours; I personally like to leave it over night before decorating though.

STEP 6 | Time to decorate! This is totally your choice HOW you do it, however I decided to start from the middle with crushed Maltesers and work outwards until I was happy.

FINAL STEP | Just enjoy it with your friends and family!

This cheesecake is so easy to make and satisfies everybody around the table. I’d love to know if you decide to make this!
Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for future cheesecake recipes.
