Easter Egg Cheesecake
- 1 whole easter egg of your choice, halved
- 20g butter
- 85g digestive biscuits (crushed)
- 200g Philadelphia or cream cheese of your choice
- 100ml double cream
- 35g icing sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Melted chocolate (to drizzle)
- Mini Eggs (to sprinkle)
Carefully split the Easter egg in two. We recommend using a sharp, warmed knife to run slowly over the seam - you don’t want your egg to crack!
Crush the Digestive biscuits. Our preferred method is with a rolling pin and a ziplock bag.
Melt the butter and add to the Digestive mix until it has all been absorbed.
Spoon the biscuit mix into the two egg halves and smooth down with either your fingers or a tablespoon. Once firm, place in the fridge while you make your filling.
Place the cream cheese, sugar and double cream into a bowl and whisk your troubles away until the mixture is thick and stiff. Then fold in your vanilla.
Spoon the mixture evenly between the two halves and smooth over to make the top level for decoration.
Top your creation with the decoration of your choice. A drizzle of melted chocolate and a handful of Mini Eggs is our fave - simple and effective. Place them in the fridge and allow to set for 2 hours (alongside any additional mixture you may have to keep it fresh).
Take it out of the fridge and enjoy!
