Decadence.

A while back Terri posted a recipe that immediately caught my eye, it was for toblerone cheesecake. I admit this caught my eye because I don't like toblerone and my family does and as I'll be in France with all my husbands family in less than four weeks I was delighted to be able to make my family something new and delicious safe in the knowledge that I wouldn't be tempted and I might yet look half decent in a bikini. Of course as I licked the bowl, expecting to not like the taste, so began a new love affair. It was delicious. This is the easiest, tastiest recipe ever made and I don't think it will be too long before I make it again. Next time I make it I will double the ingredients for the base as it was very thin compared to the thick toblerone cheese topping.

The Recipe

Base:

1 cup plain chocolate biscuit crumbs
80g melted butter

1/4 cup ground almonds

Filling:
2x 250g block Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
200g Toblerone Milk or Dark chocolate, melted
1/2 cup thickened cream (I used a pot of cream)

Method:
1. Combine biscuit crumbs, butter and almonds, press into the base of a lightly greased spring form pan. Chill.
2. Beat Philly for two minutes or until smooth. Add sugar, melted Toblerone chocolate and cream, continue beating until well combined.
3. Pour onto the prepared crumb base and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set, or overnight. Serve topped with Toberlone shavings.
Serves 10

Finally may I recommend that you ask your husband to please remove his beer glass from the floor when he goes to bed then you won't get woken up at 8:30am by your six year old saying 'somebody left a glass on the floor and by accident I knocked it over and it's smashed'

Willie_W said...

Many thanks for the recipe. I am off to fur up another artery. As my mother used to say: "Sure, you have to die of something!"

Holler said...

That looks scrummy!
I had the same problemm with a chocolate torte, I recently added to my blog, the base was just too thin! Is this a new trend in baking? I re-made the torte today with a raspberry topping instead of chocolate and I have trebled the base. We will see how it tastes tomorrow"

Toblerone cheesecake (drool)

Broken glass is my scariest thing - I just know at some point a large piece of it will embed in one of my child's feet - requiring stitches and hospital runs. Hope everyone's tootsies were okay!!!!!

Misslionheart said...

Mmm...yummy cheesecake. Unfortunately, I've just lost a stone and want to keep it off!

I too am from England (Lancashire) and married an Irishman. Oh, well, suppose we could have done a lot worse!

I've added you to my blogroll...

I have got to get my glasses fixed. I could have sworn you said you don't like Toblerone. How crazy is that?

Not much chance of tasting any toblerone in that recipe, it's a bit like tasting pumpkin in pumpkin scones.

my4kids said...

Oh yes we have had the broken glass thing before, isn't it lovely to have hubbys and children they seem to help each cause caos (sp?)...

frannie said...

I'm not a huge fan of toblerone, either- but I may have to try that pie!

alissa said...

Seriously... you don't like Toblerone chocolate bars???!!!

Christine said...

OMG, cheesecake is one of my weaknesses, and I love Swiss Chocolate. Mmmmmmmmmmm....Looks real yummy!

Steffi said...

Delicious recipe for a delicious cake!Thanks!

Sally Lomax said...

Brilliant art!!

Funny about the glass!!!

Pamela said...

i broke a glass yesterday. Opened the cupboard and it flew out as though someone had heaved it at me.

I had a plate in my hand and I was able to use it as armour to keep it from hitting my face!!!


I'm slobbering for a piece of that pie. (I'm supposed to be cutting sweets right now - so I'm just going to dream about it for time being)
