Now who says that a birthday cake has to be a sponge cake?
It’s a well known fact that I’ll cook and bake for just about any occasion, so when one of my friends birthdays is on it’s way, I’m prepared!
Since I knew my friend had a love for cheesecake and Snickers, well I put my hands together and here we have it.
This rather naughty cheesecake is not for the faint hearted, or one who is counting calories.
I made this cheesecake early morning, the day after we had got back from our London trip, and in bit of a rush as we had a full day ahead of us, so I didn’t write down my recipe.
I’d love to share this recipe with you, but you see, I went rogue, it happens alot, and didn’t follow one as I couldn’t find one I liked. Also, I also feel as though the base is never thick enough…. So I doubled it. But here’s a rough idea of what I used.
I made the base by breaking up and conbining chocolate digestive, melted butter and chopped up Snickers.
I then whisked the cream cheese, vanilla extract and icing sugar together and then folded in Snickers. And of course, decorated it with, any guesses? More Snickers!!!
I refrigerated the dream that was my cheesecake for one hour before serving it to the birthday boy and friends.
It went down a treat, and was demolished by the next evening.
Next time I promise will make note of the measurements of the products I use, even when I’m going rogue!
This was such a quick and easy cheesecake to make, and without tooting my own horn, possibly the best cheesecake I’ve ever eaten!
