Double Decker Cheesecake

I devised this recipe for my Brother in Law who said he would buy someone whatever present they wanted if they made it for him. I’m really looking forward to receiving my Birkin.

Anyway, he loved it so much he took the left overs home so it was definitely a winner. If you’re feeling a bit low on sugar make it. I hope someone buys you a Birkin if you make it for them. Make this a good few hours before you are going to eat it as it needs time to set.

Ingredients

For the base

250g cookies

100g butter

1 tablespoon caster sugar

For the Filling

500g cream cheese

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

100g icing sugar

100g dark chocolate

100ml double cream

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 large Double Decker – chopped

Topping

1 pack of Dinky Deckers

Method

Grease and line a loose bottomed 8 inch tin with greaseproof paper.

First we need to make the base so blitz your cookies into crumbs the best way you can. I wrap mine in wax wrap paper and bash with a rolling pin but you can whizz in a blender if you prefer.

When the cookies have turned to crumbs place a large saucepan over a low heat and melt your butter, then add your cookie crumbs so they are all fully coated in butter. Add your caster sugar and make sure it’s completely combined.

Now spoon the crumbs into your tin making sure they are all compact to form a good base. I press down on them to make them as compact as I can. Place tin in the fridge on a baking tray while you make the filling.

For the filling

Measure your cream cheese and icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and beat together. Beat in your vanilla extract and add your cream and cocoa powder beating all the time.

Melt your chocolate and fold into the mix along with your chopped up Double Decker. I chopped this into about 16 little squares.

Leave to set in the fridge for the day or over night would be even better. Decorate the top with your Dinky Deckers.

Gift it to someone who is going to be the happiest person in the world!
