Toblerone Cheesecake


TOBLERONE CHEESECAKE


Prep time:20 minutes Chilling time:8 hours or overnight

1 1/4 cup chocolate wafer crumbs

1/4 cup butter melted

2 pkgs (250g each) cream cheese softened

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1 cup sugar
2 bars (100g each) Toblerone Chocolate, chopped (I buy the honey & almond nougat 400g size & keep the other half in the freezer for the next cheesecake)

1 cup whipping cream, whipped

Combine chocolate crumbs and melted butter.

Press onto bottom of a 9 inch (23 cm) spring form pan.

Chill. Beat cream cheese, peanut butter and sugar on medium speed of electric mixer until very smooth.

Stir in chocolate one bar of the chocolate chopped into bite size pieces.

Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture.

Spoon into spring form pan. Chill 8 hours.

Sauce: 1/4 cup whipping cream1 bar (100g) Toblerone Chocolate (Milk or Bittersweet), chopped

Bring cream to a simmer over low heat; remove.

Add chopped chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Cool. I actually do this step in the microwave.

Pour over cake and place in refrigerator, OR pour over each slice as it is served.Makes 12 - 16 servings.


Thanks Amy for posting the picture, this is a real treat. I only serve this on real special occasions. Perhaps I will save this one for our menno girls can cook meeting someday.

  7. Looks fabulous Charlotte. OK girls, I have a nut alergy. To all nuts! This has given me grief in my kitchen and in recipe searches. I try to substitute this for that, but I once could eat them and I know the difference now. I will one day post afew exchnages that I find work well for me. I can just taste this yummy cheesecake. You all enjoy and I will try to create my own substitute. Kathy

    1. Each package of cream cheese is 250g, so that would then be a total of 500g for two packages of cream cheese.
