Equipment

  • 6 inch lose bottom cake tin

Ingredients

  • 100 g Unsalted butter
  • 200 g Digestives biscuits
  • 300 g Soft cream cheese
  • 60 g Caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • 60 g toffee pieces - I used Thorntons toffee carefully chopped up (optional)

Decoration

  • 150 ml double cream
  • toffee sauce (often found with the home baking or with the ice cream accessories in the supermarket)
  • toffee popcorn

Instructions

  • Lightly grease an 6 inch loose base cake tin. (I also added a greaseproof paper circle at the bottom to help it off the base later).
  • Melt the butter gently in the microwave in short bursts or in a pan on a low heat and then take off the heat, once melted so it doesn't burn.
  • Crush the biscuits in a food processor, or put it in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to break them up (my preferred method to leave them as a larger crumb).
  • Put the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir until all the biscuits are coated in the butter.
  • Scoop the crumbs into the tin and push down gently to make a hard layer. Place the cake tin in the fridge and leave to harden for 30 minutes while you make the cream layer.
  • In a bowl cream together the cream cheese and caster sugar until the sugar has dissolved and is well distributed. Then add in the vanilla extract and toffee if you want to add it.
  • In a new bowl lightly whip the double cream until it starts to thick.
  • Stir the double cream into the cream cheese mixture together. Be careful not to over mix.
  • Remove the cake tin from the fridge and add the cream cheese to the base and put back into the fridge to set for at least an hour. Longer is fine if you want to make it ahead of time for an event.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a plate.
  • Take your toffee sauce and drizzle all over the cheesecake.
  • Whisk the remaining double cream until it starts to thicken. Add a star nozzle to a pipping bag and add the cream. Pipe the cream into swirls on to the cheesecake around the outside.
  • Gently fill the centre of the cheesecake with the popcorn when you're ready to serve. After a while they can go a bit stale.
  • Serve and enjoy.

Notes

-If you want to serve this on a warm day keep it inside the fridge or somewhere cool until you need it. Warm weather will make the cream soften.
-If the toffee pieces are too hard for pop on a low heat in the oven for it soften slightly. Be careful as it will melt completely if left.
-If you can't find toffee pieces fudge pieces work really well too and are available in most supermarkets.
