Buzz...buzz...it's honeycomb cheesecake!

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 9:01 AM
I made this delicious cheesecake for Christmas day dessert (yes, because I didn't have enough dessert with the massive pile of M&Ms and Maltesers, truffles and pavlova...I swear!)

Kel's Honeycomb Buzz Cheesecake

80g butter, melted
1 packet Arnott's Chocolate Ripple biscuits
250ml thickened cream
2 packets Philly cheese, at room temperature
3 tsp powdered gelatin
1/4 cup water
3 large Crunchie bars (or Violet Crumbles, or the equivalent of any other honeycomb)

Place biscuits in food processor and blitz until fine crumbs. Add melted butter and mix until well combined. Press mixture into a springform tin (I use the back of a spoon). Place in fridge to set up.

Place water in a small heatproof jug and sprinkle gelatin over water. Place jug in a small saucepan of simmering water and stir gelatin until dissolved. Place Philly cheese in bowl and use electric beaters to whip until smooth. Add cream and gelatine mixture and mix for a couple of minutes. Use a kitchen mallet to break two of the honeycomb bars into small shards. Use a wooden spoon to fold these into the cheesecake mixture.

Turn mixture out into prepared springform tin and smooth top. Use remaining honeycomb to decorate top. I also drizzled chocolate over the top for that extra Christmas indulgence. Place in fridge for a few hours until set.

Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! I scored two Nigella books so expect some delish treats from me sometime soon!

Hi Kel - Hope you don't mind my getting in touch, but I have been a keen devotee since I found your Blog through Polka Dot Bride. I'm getting married in March and would love nothing better than to have a set of your beautiful cupcakes as an alternative to a normal wedding cake. Apologies for contacting you so publicly, but I haven't been able to find another way! Hope to hear from you soon.
