Ingredients

  • 250 g packet chocolate ripple biscuits, or any plain chocolate biscuits
  • 80 g butter, melted

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • To ensure a smooth cheesecake, make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting.
  • Grease and line the base and sides of a 20cm spring-form pan with baking paper and set aside.
  • Finely crush the chocolate ripple biscuits in a food processor and place into a bowl.
  • Add the melted butter and mix until well combined.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the base of the pan and place into the fridge.
  • Whip cream and set aside.
  • Dissolve gelatine in water (see note). 
  • Beat the cream cheese and caster sugar together until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the cooled, dissolved gelatine to the mix and beat until well combined.
  • Fold the whipped cream, Maltesers and chopped Crunchie bars through the cream cheese mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Spread out evenly with a spoon.
  • Place the cheesecake into the fridge to set for a minimum of 6 hours (for best results, leave in the fridge overnight before cutting).
  • Before serving, decorate with extra Maltesers and Crunchie bars.

    Could I use Butrerfinger bars? Would that be similar consistency and flavor as these Cadbury Crunchie bars?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi there – I’ve just googled Butterfinger bars! They look to be a similar texture but the flavour sounds very different (Crunchie bars are made from honeycomb and aren’t peanut butter flavoured). That being said, I think it would definitely work and make a delicious cheesecake!
