    • 180g digestive biscuit crumbs
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 110g butter, melted
    • 450g cream cheese
    • 200g caster sugar

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:1hr30min  ›  Extra time:4min chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr4min 

    1. Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    2. In a small bowl, stir together the digestive biscuit crumbs and 100g sugar. Add the melted butter and mix well. Press into the bottom of a 23cm loose bottomed cake tin. Cover the outside of the pan with a few layers of foil to make it waterproof.
    3. In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and 200g sugar until soft and smooth. Stir in the lemon juice and vanilla. Scrape the bottom of the bowl occasionally with a spatula to prevent lumps. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then fold in the bits of Daim(R) bar. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Place this tin into a larger cake tin or a roasting tin with at least 2.5cm tall sides. Put into the oven, then fill the larger pan with water, creating a water bath.
    4. Bake for 90 minutes in the preheated oven, checking after 45 minutes to refill the water bath. After 90 minutes, turn off the oven and leave the cake inside for about an hour. Chill at least 4 hours before removing from pan.

    This a fabulous cheesecake recipe. I've made it a couple of times and added extra daim with melted chocolate drizzled over the top once cooled for decoration. Only rated 4 stars just because it is a time consuming recipe. Takes a good 6-7 hours to make in total with the chilling time.  -  28 Dec 2013


    I was apprehensive about trying this recipe because there were no ratings, but went ahead with it anyway. It turned out delicious! As good as a cheesecake you get at the coffee shop!! The toffee bits melt right into the cheese and give it a great subtle flavor-next time I'll layer big chunks of a Heath bar in the crust to make it even more interesting. I'll make this all the time!  -  22 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious and memorable! I took it to a family gathering for Thanksgiving and one of my cousin requested it for his birthday treat in March! I bought a package of the heath bar bits instead of crushing the bars on my own. I sprinkled the leftovers on top of the cheesecake and then topped with stripes of melted chocolate (I used Hershey's bars).  -  06 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
