Easy After Dinner Mint Cheesecake Recipe
I was recently devouring a peppermint crisp bar when it occurred to me that the age-old After Dinner Mint has become a somewhat neglected confectionary item. They used to be one of my favourite treats, now I don’t even know where to find them in the supermarket, poor little things.Out of respect to the After Dinner Mint that was once the shining star at many dinner parties, I whipped up this After Dinner Mint Cheesecake, which is absolutely delish!
This particular cheesecake is no bake recipe and contains no gelatin either. With only a few ingredients, it’s super-simple to throw together; a low-maintenance, seriously scrummy dessert.
- 250 gr block of regular Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup condensed milk
- 1/2 cup whipped cream
- 4 Nestle peppermint crisp bars (3 for the mixture, 1 to garnish)
- 250 gr (2 oz) pack of Arnotts Choc Ripple biscuits
- 100 gr (3.5 oz) butter, melted
- Use a food processor or a rolling pin to crush the choc ripple biscuits to a fine crumb.
- Melt the butter and mix it in with the biscuit crumb. Press the mixture onto a lamington tin (rectangular slice tin approx 20 cm x 30 cm) and place it in the freezer while you prepare the filling.
- Use your food processor to crush three of the peppermint crisp bars. Set aside.
- Use electric beaters to whip the cream, set aside.
- Using your food processor or electric beaters, beat the cream cheese until soft and creamy. Add the condensed milk and continue beating for another minute.
- Fold through the whipped cream and the crushed peppermint crisps. (Make sure you don't accidentally use all of the cream - it won't set if you do. Half a cup is enough.)
- Spoon the cheesecake mixture over the biscuit base and smooth over the top. Cover with foil and place in the fridge overnight.
- The next day, cut your cheesecake slice into squares and garnish with a roughly chopped peppermint crisp bar.
