Instructions

Conventional Method

  • To ensure a smooth cheesecake, make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting.

  • Beat the cream cheese, caster sugar and Baileys together until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the dissolved gelatine to the mix and beat until well combined.
  • Melt the Toblerone chocolate and set aside to cool.
  • Fold the melted chocolate and the whipped cream through the cream cheese mixture.

  • Place into the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Grate over the remaining Toblerone chocolate.
  • Place the cheesecake back into the fridge to set for a minimum of 6 hours (for best results, leave in the fridge overnight before cutting).

  • Whip cream in a clean, dry TM bowl on Speed 3.5 until lightly whipped (the time it takes will depend on the freshness of the cream - it can be anywhere between 10 seconds and 2 minutes!!). Set the cream aside in a separate bowl.

Notes

RECIPE NOTES
Baileys flavour - 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.
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.
Toblerone - 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.
Dissolving gelatine - To dissolve the gelatine, sprinkle the 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 fill boiling water (do not allow the boiling water into the gelatine bowl) and stir until completely dissolved. 
Use full fat cream cheese - (not light) as it gives the cheesecake a firmer and creamier texture. 
Baileys Irish Cream - 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). 
Chilling time - 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. 
Storing - This cheesecake should be stored in the fridge and consumed within 3 days.
