INGREDIENTS

  • 500g softened cream cheese
  • 1tsp vanilla essence or extract
  • 250g white chocolate
  • 300ml whipping cream
  • 600g dark chocolate cookies
  • 100g butter
  • Food colouring – purple & green

METHOD

Wash your hands!

MAKING THE BASE:

  1. Set aside 10 whole cookies.
  2. Finely crush remaining cookies & set aside ½ cup of dry crushed cookies for later
  3. Melt butter and pour over crushed cookies, mixing until it resembles wet sand and clumps together when squeezed
  4. Press into a non-stick removable base fluted tart tin (or similar). Ensure cookie mixture thickness is even and reaches the sides and tops of your tart tin. Compact firmly
  5. Roughly break the 10 whole cookies, press them gently into the base & refrigerate

MAKING THE MIX:

  1. Pour ½ of the cream (150ml) over the white chocolate and microwave 1 minute
  2. Stir until smooth, microwaving an additional 30 seconds if necessary
  3. Combine vanilla & cream cheese. Add white chocolate mixture and beat using an electric mixer until smooth
  4. Divide mixture into 2 bowls. Colour one bowl of mixture green and one bowl of misture purple (TIP – gel based colours are the most vibrant)
  5. Semi whip remaining cream and divide evenly between the green and purple mixtures, folding through gently (Note – be careful not to overwhip your cream)

This decoration technique I’ve decided to call Reverse Cookie Crumb Stencilling (RCCS – lol) – it’s so versatile and you can use it with any template, any name, any shape and any colour combo.

BRINGING IT TOGETHER:

  1. Dollop scoops of purple and green mixture haphazardly inside the chilled base and smooth the top using a spatula. Set a little of each colour aside for finishing touches
  2. Once smooth, use a skewer or chopstick to marble the mixture using a figure 8 pattern
  3. Add a little extra coloured mixture anywhere you feel you need it, and marble the surface gently
  4. Freeze approx. 1 hour
  5. While you’re waiting, print this maleficent template on non toxic cardstock and cut around the silouhette
  6. When the cheesecake is firm to touch, place the template gently on top and press down the edges and corners to ensure a snug fit
  7. Use the remaining crushed dry cookies to sprinkle over the cheesecake, spreading them away from the template so they stick only to the exposed cheesecake.
  8. Use a pastry brush to remove excess crumbs from the template, prise the corners up with a skewer or knife and once all corners are free, remove your template
  9. Be amazed

This awesome cheesecake keeps in the fridge for 1 week & is best served chilled. Serve with raspberry coulis or strawberry topping for a deliciously evil dessert…

In the lead up to Halloween I wanted to give you something fresh and simple and a little less traditional to the usual pumpkins and skeletons (but don’t worry, they’re coming)

Get ready for Halloween!!
