Are you feeling festive yet?
I’ve already planned our Christmas tree buying day so basically, that means that the season is here right?
As I said last week, I can’t believe I’ve never shared a Christmas cheesecake recipe before. So, I’ve come up with three this year (making up for lost time). My first one, the Chocolate Orange Cheesecake recipe I posted last week, has gone down so well, especially the video on Facebook.
I’m so pleased, I can’t wait to see people making it on Christmas Day hopefully. What an honour to be a tiny part of the Christmas celebrations!
This recipe is based on this really simple No Bake Cheesecake recipe of mine (which has proved very popular – 2 million blog views and counting!)
How do you make a Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake?
To make the No Bake Ferrero Rocher cheesecake, you make a simple biscuit base with crushed digestives and then top with deliciously light and creamy filling. Whipped double cream, icing sugar and cream cheese with melted chocolate. Mixed in chopped Ferrero Rocher, put it all together and leave to set.
When the cheesecake is set, drizzle over dark chocolate, more cream and Ferraro Rocher. So easy and delicious.
How long do you need to chill a No Bake Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake for?
A No Bake Cheesecake needs to be chilled in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight.
What is the best tin to make a No Bake Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake in?
This recipe is for a 7″ tin which is also DEEP (not a standard sandwich cake tin, it will overflow.)
You can use smaller or larger tin or a different shape, but your cheesecake will obviously be taller or shorter. I would DEFINITELY recommend this tin though as it is a great size and very easy to use.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS NO BAKE Ferraro Rocher CHEESECAKE RECIPE:
- The consistency of this no bake cheesecake should be sliceable but not solid. Something like room temperature butter, it will give a little quiver if you wobble it gently.
- When whipping the double cream, be sure to watch it very carefully. It should be just forming soft floppy peaks, but still hold it’s shape. Too runny and the no bake cheesecake will be sloppy, too stiff and it will be too dense.
- Do sift the icing sugar, it will give a much smoother texture to the cheesecake. Don’t ignore this as I normally do!
- The recipe is for a 7″ tin which is also DEEP (not a standard sandwich cake tin, it will overflow! See the link below for the type of tin I use). You can use smaller or larger but your cheesecake will obviously be taller or shorter. I would DEFINITELY recommend this tin though as it is a great size and very easy to use.
- Ferraro Rocher Cheesecake too runny and won’t set? It’s probably because your cream wasn’t whipped quite enough. No problem, pop it into the freezer for a few hours before serving.
