JILL BAKES | Mini Egg Easter Cheesecake

Mini Egg Cheesecake with Jill Bakes

Mini Eggs have to be the most popular Easter chocolate (and my favourite!) so this is a great crowd-pleaser for an Easter dessert!

Serves 8-10

380g chocolate hob nobs

110g butter

540g Philadelphia (3 tubs)

225g icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

250ml whipping cream

240g mini eggs, crushed (3 packs)

50g melted milk chocolate

To decorate;

1 chocolate flake, crushed

160g mini eggs (2 packs)


Crush the biscuits in a food bag with a rolling pin until really fine crumbs. In another food bag crush the mini eggs and set aside.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan and then pour in the biscuit crumbs. Stir well to combine. Transfer into a 9 inch springform tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Place into the fridge.

Melt the chocolate in 30 second intervals in the microwave and set aside.

Cream together the cream cheese, vanilla and icing sugar in a large bowl with a hand whisk.

In another bowl lightly whip the cream with the hand mixer until it just holds its shape. Fold this gently into the cheese mixture - this takes a few minutes and will look lumpy before it combines.

Add the crushed Mini Eggs and melted chocolate and combine - you want to keep a nice swirl so don't overmix.

Pour onto the chilled biscuit base and spread out evenly. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight. Remove from the tin onto a serving plate. Add the crushed flake and some mini eggs.
