Mint Aero Cheesecake Recipe

If there is one thing to know about me, it’s my weakness for mint. Imperial mints, mint chocolate, mint ice-cream. If it’s minty, I love it! So when I came across the recipe to make my own mint aero cheesecake, how could I not do it {and eat it all myself!! Mwahahaha!}

This mint aero cheesecake is a no-bake recipe, super simple and insanely tasty! It can be rustle up within 15 mins prep time and ready to devour within a couple of hours.

Ingredients:
 
2 1/2 oz butter
200g cream cheese {I use Philadelphia}
15 digestive biscuits {or more if you feel it necessary!}
250ml double cream
4 oz icing sugar
2 large bars of mint aero chocolate

For the base:

Melt the butter in a pan. As that’s melting, crush your digestive biscuits. Once the butter is melted, add to the crushed digestives & mix well. Line your cake tin with the biscuit base and press down to ensure they are well combined.

For the topping:
Mix your icing sugar & cream cheese together {either by hand or a whisk}, then make up your double cream {whisk it until you get soft peaks} and add it to your cream cheese & icing sugar mixture.
 
Bash the life out of your aero bars {great stress reliever!}, I find keeping them in the wrapper and giving them a few whacks with a rolling pin helps and add the crushed mint aero bars to your mix. Don’t use it all though {I know it’s tempting!} but put some aside to sprinkle on top before it goes into the fridge to set.
 
Add the minty mixture to your biscuit base, smooth it out with a spatula, sprinkle it with the leftover crushed aero and put it into your fridge to set. It should be set & ready to enjoy in a couple of hours.

Those few hours were SO insanely long for me. It’s like it knew I was waiting for it, so it {somehow} slowed down the space-time continuum just to torture me! But as that last second ticked passed, I opened that fridge door and BOOM! It was ready for me to enjoy! And enjoy it I did! Only a slice mind you, I didn’t eat it all by myself
{my kids would’ve hunted me down if I did!}.

    That’s a real shame Jane. Maybe the settings in our fridges are different?

    Hi. Thanks very much for the recipe. This might sound really stupid. But first time baking. What do you mean make up your double cream?

    • 02/10/2015 / 12:54 PM

      Hi there, just using an electric mixer {or by hand – but it takes longer} and whip it up until ready. You’ll know when it is.
