    Serves: 10 

    • 175g milk chocolate digestive biscuits
    • 75g unsalted butter
    • 400g Philadelphia® cream cheese
    • 100g icing sugar, sifted
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
    • 300ml double cream
    • 150g Maltesers®, crushed
    • whole Maltesers®, for decorating

    Prep:25min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr25min 

    1. Place the digestive biscuits in a large sealable freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin to form crumbs.
    2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Remove from the heat and add the biscuit crumbs, stirring to ensure they are coated in the butter.
    3. Spoon the crumb mixture into the base of a 23cm springform cake tin and compact with the back of a spoon.
    4. Combine the Philadelphia® cheese, icing sugar and vanilla bean paste in a bowl and beat together until well combined; set aside.
    5. Pour the double cream into a separate bowl and whisk until peaks form. Spoon the cream into the cream cheese mixture and fold gently together. Add the crushed Maltesers® and fold gently together.
    6. Spoon the mixture over the base in the tin, spread evenly and tap the tin lightly on the worktop to ensure there are no air pockets. Place in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours, or until set.
    7. Once set, release the sides of the springform cake tin and place the cheesecake on a serving plate, adding the whole Maltesers® on top to decorate. Serve and enjoy!

    Easy to make, I added more biscuits and butter as I like a thick cheesecake base! Currently setting in the fridge  -  04 Feb 2018


    Very easy to make and turned out perfectly! Took it as a dessert for a friend's barbecue and it was very popular!  -  02 Sep 2017


    This was so easy to make, and my first attempt was for a luncheon, where it did receive rave reviews. One friend has requested the recipe. I am planning to make it for Sunday Easter Luncheon, Will add an Easter Bunny to the top decoration, and arrange the Maltersers a little differently, with perhaps a few piped flowers to create more of an Easter theme. I recommend everyone to try this recipe - and forget about the calories (lol) because you will be having this as a 'special treat.' Will attach the photo I took for my first attempt. Happy Easter to all.  -  07 Apr 2017
