I saw this recipe for a Pleesecake – a no cook, deconstructed cheesecake dessert. It was in a Sunday magazine recently and I saved it because it looked fun. It was also titled ‘If you only have 5 minutes’! I often have only 15 minutes to throw a pudding together so this one ticked all my flavour boxes as it has honeycomb, chocolate and cream! It also requires no cooking, so no chance for it to go wrong.
No cook, deconstructed cheesecake dessert
Ingredients: serves 2
For the base
80g plain digestive biscuits
For the filling:
160g cream cheese
20g (1 tbsp) caster sugar
2 tbsp honey
60g honeycomb, crushed
70ml double cream
50g milk chocolate
For the topping
40g honeycomb, broken into pieces
60g milk chocolate, melted
How to prepare
For the base, smash up the biscuits and honeycomb, leaving it fairly chunky. Spoon into two long glasses and set aside.
Beat the cream cheese and sugar together. Stir in the honey and honeycomb.
Whip the cream until you have stiff peaks and fold it gently into the mixture. Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave or a heatproof bowl, set over a pan of simmering water. Let it cool slightly, then pour it into the mixture and stir lightly to create a swirled effect. Spoon into the glasses.
For the topping, add the honeycomb and finish off with an indulgent drizzle of melted milk chocolate.
