Are you looking to make your haul of American sweets go further? On Taffy Mail Unwrapped – the blog of the UK’s only rolling American candy subscription service – we provide ways of making the contents of your box of candy last even longer!
We here at Taffy Mail like to focus more on the consumption of candy wholesale, rather than baking it into other products. This means that we haven’t developed the skill – or attention span – to cook a traditional New York style baked cheesecake.
Step forward this delicious non-bake cheesecake with everyone’s favourite small crunchy pieces of American candy: Wonka Nerds:
In order to make this delicious (and colourful!) no-bake cheesecake, you will need:
- 180g digestive biscuits
- 110g butter – melted
- 400g cream cheese
- 90g icing sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 300ml double cream – lightly whipped
- And of course a box of nerds – although you’ll only need about 60g of them
To make the buttery biscuit base, put the biscuits in a food processor until you have crumbs, then mix thoroughly with the melted butter until the mixture starts to clump.
Beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla essence, lemon juice and the Wonka Nerds
Fold the lightly whipped cream into the mixture
Smear the mixture over the base.
Sprinkle additional Nerds over the top of the cheesecake and put in the fridge to set for 3 hours.
Release from the spring form tin and eat!
