Mars Bar cheesecake

Posted by Bee & John on December 23, 2010 at 7:25 PM

I just made this today to enjoy over the next few festive days - I'll let you  know what it tastes like... but it looks FANTASTIC!!


It is only the second time I've tried to make a cheesecake - the first was earlier this week!!  I thought I'd try a "thermomix" cheesecake to see how it was supposed to turn out.  If you are interested, it was the Frozen Mojito cheesecake from "Entertaining with Nico" booklet (ALSO yum!!)


Anyway - this cheesecake was a little fiddly and needed a couple of extra bowls and thermomix cleans - but it was quite easy and looks amazing.  The recipe was given to me by a client of mine... thanks Karen!


Ingredients

 

  • 250g plain chocolate biscuits
  • 125g butter
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 20g butter extra
  • 300 ml thickened cream
  • 50g chocolate
  • 3 tsp of gelatin
  • 60ml boiling water (1/4 cup)
  • 2 x 250g packets of cream cheese
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 3 x 60g mars bars
Prior
  1. boil the kettle and put 60ml into a glass.  Sprinkle the gelatine over the just boiled water, stir well and set aside.  Its ok if there is a few lumps, they'll get dissolved
  2. Make some caster sugar
  3. Slice the mars bars into thin slices
Crust
  1. Put the bikkies and butter (don't melt it first - makes it too sticky, but room temp would be good).  Whizz for 5 seconds on 6
  2. Press evenly over base and side of 20cm springform tin.  Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm (I put in the freezer and it was ready when I finished the rest)
  3. Caramel sauce
  4. combine brown sugar, the extra 20g of butter and 30g of the cream (2 tbls) in the Thermomix bowl.  Cook at 100oC for 4 minutes on 1.  Put aside
  5. don't clean the bowl - no need
Chocolate sauce
  1. put chocolate into bowl.  Grate for 5 seconds on 9.  Scrape down the sides.  Add 30g of the cream (2 tbls spoons) and cook on 80oC for 4 minutes on 1.  Put aside.
  2. clean the bowl
Filling
  1. insert the butterfly.  Beat the remaining cream until soft peaks form on speed 4 (about 20-30 seconds)
  2. Set aside
  3. don't clean bowl
  4. Put cream cheese, sugar and Gelatin mixture into Thermomix bowl and beat for 10 seconds on 5
  5. put the whipped cream in and stir on 2 for 20 seconds or until all mixed.  You may need to use the spatula while mixing.
Putting it all together
  1. put half of the cheesecake mixture into the crumb crust.  Drizzle half of the chocolate and half of the caramel sauce over the top and swirl with a skewer to create a marble effect.
  2. press 1/3 of the mars bar slices into mixture
  3. return the thermomix bowl back to the cradle and add 1/3 of the mars bars.  Chop for 10 seconds on 6
  4. put this mixture ontop of layer already in the crumb crust. 
  5. Use the rest of the chocolate and caramel sauces to drizzle on the top.  swirl again with a skewer.
  6. Decorate the top of the cheesecake with the remaining pieces of mars bars slices.
  7. cover and chill for 3 hours or set.

Hi, thanks for this recipe, turned out fabulous except that I didn't stir the gelatine till smooth and ended up with lumps of gelatine throughout :( But the taste was fantastic so I will know what to do next time..
