IT'S MARS CHEESECAKE DAMITT!!!!!
....and I'm celebrating because.......... I'M GOING TO SEE NICKELBACK....LIVE!! WOOT, WOOT.
Got my tickets on Saturday and I'm so excited, I might actually vom..
So, I'm renaming this recipe "Nickelback Pie"...yeah, yeah...I know...you must have been expecting something like this from me by now?? Will be counting down the days and of course blogging about it in November. I even got Mr 3P to come with with me....he certainly knows the words to their music...bless his cotton socks. what a good man.
Anyhow, I've had many requests for this recipe, which was given to me by a friend and I think she may have gotten it from Women's Weekly...but I can't remember.
I make this when we go to someone's house for dinner & we take a dessert....sometimes...lol
Many times I have taken the basis of the recipe and swapped out the Mars bar, caramel & choc for other things, like strawberries and strawberry jam, or chocmint and peppermint crisp....use your imagination.
And don't spoil your dinner!!
250g chocolate biscuits
120g melted butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
25g extra butter
300ml thickened cream
3 teaspoons gelatine
1/4 cup boiling water
500g cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
3 Mars Bars, chopped (180g) I used the "fun" sized bars (there were leftovers...mwahaha)
1. Make the base by processing the biscuits into crumbs and mixing through the melted butter. Line a 20cm springform tin with baking paper and press mixture into base (and up the sides if you like...it never works for me). Cover with foil and refrigerate for 30mins to set.
2. Combine the brown sugar, extra butter and 2 tbsp of cream in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until dissolved. (This time, I just put these ingredients in a microwave safe mug and microwaved for one minute...worked out the same).
3. Combine the chocolate & 2 tbsp cream and melt together. (again I did this in the microwave, but you can do it on the stovetop in a small saucepan).
4. In a heatproof cup add the gelatine and stir with boiling water until dissolved. Set aside to cool...no longer that 5 minutes or it might set.
5. Beat the cream cheese and caster sugar together with an electric mixer, until smooth. Beat the rest of the cream together in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. Stir the gelatine mixture into the cream cheese mixture, then add and stir in the Mars Bar bits and then fold in the cream.
6. Pour half the mixture into the prepared base. Drizzle half of the caramel and chocolate sauce over. add the other half of the cheesecake mixture and top with the rest of the 2 sauces. Drag a skewer through to make a nice pattern if you like.
7. Lick the bowl...it saves on washing up and is much better for the environment.
8. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours....overnight is best.
|I made Mr3P hold this for me while I took a bunch of pictures...it started to melt by the time I got the lighting right...lol|
