Toblerone Cheesecake

Okay my first recipe post and surprisingly its not a cake recipe! I've decided to share my Toblerone cheesecake recipe first, and not a cake recipe because its one of my most popular photos on Twitter and Instagram. My followers seem to love this just by looking at the photo I posted! It's also one of my favourite cheesecakes, simply because its quick and easy to make and seriously who doesn't like Toblerone?


Serves 12 
Ingredients 
200g digestive biscuits, finely crushed 
90g unsalted butter melted 
300g philadelphia cream cheese
300ml double cream (lightly whipped)
200g toblerone, melted (plus one extra bar for decorating)

  1. Lightly grease a 8inch springform cake tin or a mousse ring with butter. Put the crushed biscuits in a bowl and add the melted butter. Mix till combined. Press mixture over base of the tin evenly. Refrigerate while you make the cheesecake.
  2. Melt the 200g of toblerone chocolate over a bain-marie (water bath) or double boiler
  3. In another bowl mix philadelaphia cheese until its smooth. Pour the melted chocolate into the creamcheese.
  4. Mix till combined.  
  5. Pour in the lightly whipped cream and fold in gently until well combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared biscuit base.
  7. Spread the mixture evenly over the biscuit base with a palette knife.
  8. I am a bit of a perfectionist so I do pay more attention at this stage. Just by spending a couple of more minutes smoothing out the surface, it will make a lot of difference to the look of  your end result. When you think the top is smooth and even refrigerate for at least 5 hours, ideally over night.
  9. De-mould the cheesecake.

Cut into 12 pieces and place a piece of Toblerone onto each cheesecake and serve. Enjoy!


Hope you enjoyed my first recipe post. Do let me know how you got on. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments.     
 
 
New version of a old favourite! June 2015
 Toblerone and Oreo Cheesecake!
 
If you love Toblerone and Oreos then you must try this! Use the same ingredients above and add a packet of cut up pieces of Oreos into the mixture after you've mixed in the cream.
 
 
 
 I used chocolate filling Oreos with this one.
 
 Delicious!

Enjoy! xxx

  8. Tried this recipe yesterday. Jo, you are right. It's so simple and delicious and not too sweet at all. But I used chocolate sponge base instead of digestive biscuits ( thought might tried something different ) and it worked. Very light and yummy! Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I know chinese people don't like things too sweet or rich, you can just add more cream to make it even lighter xx

  9. Hi Jo, it's my son's 4 yr birthday this Saturday and this recipe is perfect for him as he's allergic to eggs and loves chocolate. I've not made a cake for over 10 years, but I've been inspired by you and your recipe. Wish me luck!!! Ah Beel x

  12. Hi, when you say 200g of toblerone, do you mean half a 400g bar or one of the smaller bars? think they are 170g though :S
    Looks delicious :) x x

    Replies
    1. Hi, they do 100g bars of Toblerone too. So I used 3 bars, 2 for the cheesecake mixture and 1 bar for decorating (best to weigh the chocolate to be more accurate) :) xx

  20. Hello Jo, the cake looks so mouthwatering! And the surface is flawless, I see what you mean by being a perfectionist! I'd like to ask you - in my country, we don't have anything called "Philadelphia cream cheese" so I was wondering if you could be so nice as to somehow describe what it is or what can be used instead of it. Is similar to, for example, mascarpone?

    1. Thanks, if you can't find soft cream cheese, mascarpone cheese may work. Although I have not tried it myself but the two cheeses have quite similar textures. Do let me know how it turns out :)

  26. This doesn't mention gelatine in recipe. Will it hold its shape out of fridge?

    1. No need to add gelatine, it will still hold without using it :)

  28. Can you substitute with any other chocolate? Not that Toblerone isn't an amazing chocolate, it is! But I was wondering if this recipe might be my new basic chocolate cheesecake recipe :)
