For the gingernut base
For the filling
1. Line the base of a 20cm loose-bottomed or springform tin with baking parchment.
2. To make the base crush the gingernuts with a rolling pin and stir in the melted butter. Press the mixture into the base of the lined tin and level the top. Chill the base in the fridge while you make the filling.
3. In a bowl, beat the soft cheese with the yoghurt, sugar and vanilla extract.
4. In a clean dry bowl, beat the cream with a hand-held electric whisk until it stands in stiff peaks.
5. Put the hot water in a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatine over it and stir well. Leave it for 2–3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the gelatine is completely dissolved and clear. Stir it into the soft cheese mixture and then gently fold in the whipped cream.
6. Put the Cadbury Mini Eggs into a sealable plastic bag and smash them into medium and small pieces with a rolling pin or meat mallet.
7. Arrange most of the crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs over the biscuit base and pour the cheesecake mixture over the top. Chill the cheesecake in the fridge overnight until it is set. Sprinkle it with the remaining crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs and serve it cut into slices. And there you have it, a delicious mini egg recipe, perfect for Easter.
1. Line a 30 x 20cm baking tin with baking parchment.
2. Put the chocolate squares in a large glass bowl and microwave them for 20–30 seconds. Take out the bowl and stir the chocolate, then repeat until it is all melted. Alternatively, place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until the chocolate has melted.
3. Put the digestive biscuits into a sealable plastic bag and bash them with a rolling pin until you have a mixture of different-sized pieces. You want some quite big crunchy pieces – not just crumbs.
4. Stir the crushed biscuits and marshmallows into the melted chocolate until everything is well combined and coated.
5. Transfer the mixture to the lined tin, pushing it into the corners and levelling the top. Push in the Cadbury Mini Eggs, distributing them evenly, and press them down with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
6. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 2–3 hours (or overnight) until it is set. Cut it into 24 squares and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
