We were really happy with how light and creamy this one turned out. Definitely a winner.
Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
Serves 8 - 10
250 g plain vanilla biscuits
100 g butter, melted
500 g cream cheese
1 Tbsp Strawberry dessert topping
1 tsp vanilla essence
300 mL cream, whipped
1 Cup strawberries (I used frozen)
1/4 Cup caster sugar
3/4 Cup chocolate chips
1. Place the biscuits in a food processor and process to a fine crumb. Add the melted butter and process until well combined. Press the biscuit mixture into the base and up the sides of a greased 20 cm spring form cake tin. Place in the refrigerator to set while making the filling.
2. Place the strawberries and sugar in a saucepan over a low/medium heat. The berries will start to "melt", use a masher to mash the berries until near smooth.
3. Beat the cream cheese together with the strawberry dessert topping and vanilla essence until smooth and no lumps of cream cheese remain. Mix in the mashed strawberries, followed by the chocolate chips.
4. Fold in the whipped cream and pour the mixture over the base. Smooth the top. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate until set (an hour or two).
