Here’s a real indulgent sweet treat for you! I made this little Malteser cheesecake in my 5 inch round springform tin. If you want to make a larger cheesecake then you can easily double the ingredients 😉
This turned out to be the perfect amount for the four of us. The only downside to this was there was no leftovers to be tempted by – although maybe that wasn’t a bad thing after all!
You can adapt this cheesecake to suit your sweet tooth and include your favourite chocolate – Crunchies, Snickers or Daim bars would all work really well here, to name just a few! Let your imagination run wild 🙂
Mini Malteser Cheesecake
recipe by Nickki T Cookie’s Cakes and Bakes
70g digestive biscuits
30g melted butter
One 35g Malteser bar
125g full fat cream cheese
4 tbsp icing sugar
125ml double cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Place the biscuits and the malteser bar in a food bag and bash to crumbs. Pour in the chocolatey biscuit crumbs and stir until you have a damp mixture. Press the buttery crumbs into your tin and press down. Place in the fridge to chill.
Whip the double cream until it holds softs peaks. Add the icing sugar, cream cheese and vanilla extract and mix well. Cut the maltesers in half and fold in. Pour into your tin and place in the fridge again. Leave to set for a couple of hours. Once the cheesecake is set, sprinkle over some crushed maltesers and enjoy 🙂
