When it comes to dessert, cheesecake is always the hands-down winner for me! Whether it’s a perfectly cooked classic baked cheesecake, or a simple no-bake cheesecake… there’s no doubt that it will be the first thing to disappear from the dessert table!

This Toblerone Cheesecake combines two of my favourite things (chocolate and cheesecake!) into one super easy and totally delicious dessert.

What You Need

*Please scroll to the Toblerone cheesecake recipe card at the bottom for ingredient quantities and tips

For the base: 

  • Arnott’s Chocolate Ripple biscuits (or any plain sweet chocolate biscuit) – these are known as cookies in the US. You can substitute with Oreos if you prefer.
  • almond meal (ground almonds) – you can ground your own almonds or buy almond meal.
  • butter – either salted or unsalted butter is suitable for this recipe.

For the filling:

  • cream cheese – I recommend using full fat Philly cream cheese (or a similar brand). Full fat cream cheese gives the BEST taste and texture.
  • caster sugar – also known as superfine sugar.
  • thickened cream – also known as heavy or whipping cream.
  • Toblerone chocolate (plus extra for grating) – if you can’t buy Toblerone chocolate, you can use regular milk or dark chocolate.
  • gelatine (*optional – see tips below) – I highly recommend using gelatine as it will ensure your cheesecake holds it’s shape and texture when removed from the fridge (perfect for a party!)

Toblerone Chocolate

Toblerone is a brand of Swiss milk chocolate made with honey and almond nougat.

It can be purchased from most major supermarkets worldwide.

If you’re unable to buy Toblerone chocolate, you can use substitute it with regular milk or dark chocolate.

Step 2 – Beat Until Creamy

Beat the cream cheese and caster sugar in a bowl with a stand-mixer, hand-held beaters or a Thermomix.

TIP: Bring the cream cheese to room temperature before beating to ensure a smooth filling.

Using Gelatine In No-Bake Cheesecakes

There is always plenty of debate about whether you should use gelatine in no-bake cheesecakes.

With the exception of individual cheesecakes that are prepped and served in a cup or small bowl, I always recommend using gelatine.

A cheesecake made with gelatine can be removed from the fridge and served at a party or event without losing it’s shape or texture. You can also cut it into perfect slices without any fuss!

On the other hand, a cheesecake made without gelatine needs to be served directly from the fridge or it risks becoming too soft and difficult to serve.

If you would prefer a firmer cheesecake, then I strongly suggest using dissolved gelatine powder in this recipe.

How To Dissolve Gelatine

My no-fuss fool-proof method for dissolving gelatine ensures no lumps or bumps in the mixture.

To dissolve gelatine powder:

  • Place 2 tsp of gelatine powder into a small bowl filled with 1/4 cup lukewarm water.
  • Place that small bowl into a large bowl and fill the larger bowl with boiling water (do not allow the boiling water to enter the smaller bowl).
  • Allow the boiling water to slowly heat the smaller bowl and dissolve the gelatine (this will take a couple of minutes).

Storing & Freezing

Chill the cheesecake for a minimum of 6 hours (best overnight) and then continue to store it in the fridge until needed.

Consume within 3 days.

You can freeze the cheesecake as a whole or in individual portions. Wrap in a layer of plastic wrap and then a layer of foil and freeze for up to 1 month.

To defrost, place the cheesecake into the fridge overnight.

Recipe Tips

  • For a smooth cheesecake, ensure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting
  • Use a 23cm round springform pan and grease and line the base and sides with baking paper
  • If you can’t buy Toblerone chocolate, you can substitute it with any milk or dark chocolate
  • Arnott’s chocolate ripple biscuits are a famous Australia chocolate biscuit. If you can’t buy these, you can substitute them with any plain sweet chocolate cookies you like (or even Oreos)
  • Use dissolved gelatine for a firmer cheesecake that can be removed from the fridge and served at a party or event without losing it’s shape or texture (highly recommended)
  • This recipe can be made using hand-held beaters, a stand-mixer or a Thermomix
  • Chill the cheesecake in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours before serving (or overnight)
