Just Like Mum Used to Make..

If you are a chocolate fan, and a mint fan, then you will LOVE this!! It's just as yummy as I remember, if not yummier.

Here it is..

Choc Mint Cheesecake

1 packet ripple biscuits
30g sugar
125g melted butter

Crush biscuits, add sugar and melted butter to mixture, mix well.
Put into well greased springform pan, spread biscuit mix on the base, and a little up the sides until it is relatively even and refrigerate.

250g cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp hot water
1 tsp gelatine
1 cup whipped cream
6 after dinner mints
1 tbsp extra water

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.
Sprinkle gelatine over water and dissolve. Cool briefly.
Add to the creamed mixture, beat well, fold in the whipped cream.
Spoon mixture into crust.
Dissolve mints into extra hot water, cool, spoon over cheese cake mixture and swirl with a knife.
Refrigerate for an hour or so.


And just look at my mum's copy of this recipe...a very well loved cookbook and recipe, don't you think?

Happy baking!
