How To Dissolve Gelatine 

This is the EASIEST and most FOOLPROOF way to dissolve gelatine. 

To dissolve gelatine (without getting any lumps):

  • Sprinkle the gelatine powder over 1/3 cup cool water in a small bowl and allow to sit for a minute or 2.
  • Stir.
  • Place the small bowl into a larger bowl filled with boiling water (do not allow the boiling water into the gelatine bowl) and stir until completely dissolved. 

That’s it!!

Recipe Tips

This really is such a simple cheesecake recipe, but these tips will ensure it turns out perfectly every single time!!

  • Chocolate ripple biscuits are a famous Australian plain sweet chocolate cookie made by Arnott’s. They can be substituted with any plain sweet chocolate cookie or Oreos.
  • I like to use melted Toblerone chocolate in this recipe, however you can use plain milk or dark chocolate if you prefer
  • To avoid lumps, allow the melted chocolate to cool to room temperature before folding through the mixture.
  • When dissolving the gelatine, follow my steps above for perfectly dissolved gelatine.
  • I recommend using full fat cream cheese (not light) as it gives the cheesecake a firmer and creamier texture. 
  • This recipe has been made using Baileys Irish Cream, however you can use any brand of Irish cream you like (there are several cheaper options). 
  • This cheesecake has a subtle Baileys flavour. You can add extra Baileys (up to 100ml extra) to make it stronger, however if you do, you’ll also need to adjust the gelatine quantity (by 1 tsp), in order to ensure that the cheesecake sets.
  • Allow the cheesecake to chill in the fridge for approximately 15 minutes before grating over the extra Toblerone chocolate. 
  • For best results, leave your cheesecake in the fridge overnight before serving. However, if you’re pressed for time, 6 hours (minimum) will be fine. 
  • This Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake should be stored in the fridge and consumed within 3 days.
