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
