You know those desserts that are comforting, sweet, messy and addictive? This is my Maltesers and Baileys cheesecake. Not to brag (Well, brag a little, it's amazing), but I've made this a good few times and it has become a firm favourite with friends and family, and myself! In fact, at my best friends 18th, a good friend of mine, slightly drunk, came over and asked me if I made the cheesecake, when I said yes, all he could do was hug me! If that's not a compliment to the chef, nothing is, really. It's so so so easy to make, you can't go too far wrong! Simple and sweet, what more could you want? I have a few recipes I am very reluctant to part with, this being one of them, so make one, and enjoy!
For the base:
3/4 pack of digestives
For the topping:
300g Philadelphia cream cheese
150g caster sugar
100g icing sugar
250g whipped cream
box of Maltesers
1) Crush up the digestives untill it's like sand and mix in the softened butter and press the mix down into a cheesecake tin.
2) In a clean bowl, mix together the caster and icing sugar with the Philadelphia cream cheese.
3) Mix in the whipped cream.
4) Add in the Baileys and the crushed up Maltesers. Add some Maltesers on top.
5) Add the topping to the digestive base and set in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Continue to lick the bowl.
6) Cut yourself a slice, a cup of tea and fuzzy socks in tow and pat yourself on the back on your culinary skills.
See? I told you it was simple! It's the perfect dessert to serve for your friends or family, they will love it! What I love about this recipe is its versatility. Don't like Maltesers? (Don't answer that...) add any chocolate of your choice, any! M&M's, Snickers, Magic Stars, Buttons, Minstrels or just plain chocolate! I made a cheesecake last week, and I opted for Toblerone. :)
All I have to say is, thank god I get exercise everyday and usually eat healthy, or else I would have to be rolled out the door! I hope you all have the chance to make this, you won't regret it. ;)
Thank you all for reading,
Stay fab xo
