Ingredients

  • 250 g plain chocolate biscuits, crushed I used Arnotts Choc Ripple biscuits for this recipe
  • 120 g butter, melted
  • 500 g cream cheese softened to room temp
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
  • 200 ml thickened cream
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 tsp gelatin powder
  • 2 50g Mars Bars, chopped
  • caramel and chocolate sauce, to swirl through (and extra to decorate) I used Hershey's sauces for this recipe
  • 3 extra Mars Bars, chopped, for decoration

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Grease and line a 23cm springform pan with baking paper and set aside. 
  • Crush the chocolate biscuits in a food processor until fine crumbs remain. 
  • Mix the melted butter through the biscuits and press firmly into the base of the prepared tin. 
  • Beat the softened cream cheese in a bowl until smooth. 
  • Add the vanilla extract and caster sugar and beat again until smooth. 
  • Add the thickened cream and beat until light and creamy. 
  • Place the boiling water into a small bowl and sprinkle over the gelatine powder (1 tsp at a time). Stir until completely dissolved and allow to cool slightly. 
  • Pour the cooled gelatine mixture into the bowl and beat through until completely combined. 
  • Fold through the chopped Mars Bars. 
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread out evenly. 
  • Drizzle over the caramel and chocolate sauces and swirl through with a knife. 
  • Place into the fridge for at least 6-8 hours to set (preferably overnight). 
  • Decorate with extra caramel sauce and the remaining chopped Mars Bars. 

Thermomix Method

  • Grease and line a 23cm springform pan with baking paper and set aside. 
  • Melt the butter in a clean Thermomix bowl on 90 degrees, Speed 2, 2 minutes (or until completely melted). 
  • Add the chocolate biscuits and mix on Speed 9, 5 seconds, or until fine crumbs remain. 
  • Press into the base of the prepared tin and set aside. 
  • Insert the butterfly into the Thermomix bowl and add the softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, caster sugar and cream and mix on Speed 5, 1 minute (scrape down the sides of the bowl every 20 seconds). 
  • Place the boiling water into a small bowl and sprinkle over the gelatine powder (1 tsp at a time). Stir until completely dissolved and allow to cool slightly. Pour the cooled gelatine mixture into the Thermomix bowl and mix on Speed 4, 20 seconds or until completely combined. 
  • Fold through the chopped Mars Bars with the spatula. 
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread out evenly. 
  • Drizzle over the caramel and chocolate sauces and swirl through with a knife. 
  • Place into the fridge for at least 6-8 hours to set (preferably overnight). 
  • Decorate with extra caramel sauce and the remaining chopped Mars Bars. 

Notes

For a perfectly smooth cheesecake, make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before starting. 
Chop the Mars Bars for the filling quite small so the cheesecake is easy to slice when set. 
Use only a small amount of chocolate and caramel sauces for swirling through the cheesecake as too much wont set properly. 
For this cheesecake, I used Hersheys chocolate sauce and Hersheys caramel sauce bought from Woolworths. All larger supermarkets will sell pre-made caramel and chocolate sauces. 
This cheesecake is best left overnight to set (but 6-8 hours at a minimum is ok).

    One of my partner’s lovely work colleagues made him this cheesecake for his birthday and woah! We could’t get enough of it! Very rich as to be expected, so you don’t need a huge piece. But was definitely the yummiest cheesecake I ever tried! I’m making one for Easter this weekend!

      Hehehe yes it is very rich!! So glad you enjoyed it! xx

  2. Nathan says:

    I tried to use the electric mixer but the cream cheese got stuck in the beaters. Is there a trick to that or should I do it all by hand again next time?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Nathan, this usually happens when the cream cheese hasn’t softened enough. Just give it a bit of extra time and it should be fine. (PS. You’l always get a bit of mixture stuck in the beaters but just push it out with a spoon or spatula once it’s turned off).
