Toblerone Cheesecake

This has always been the most popular cheesecake when I put it on menus. A lot of people have asked me to post the recipe so here it is.

It is really quick to make, doesn’t use gelatine and can be made in a matter of minutes. It is also really cheap if you use the supermarkets own brand of cream cheese. I don’t know why anyone would use the expensive brands. I got the Toblerone in Tesco but is was really expensive as they only had the really big one which was almost 8 euro.


Allergens : Contains Gluten & Lactose
Cream Cheese - 750g
Fresh Cream - 400ml
Toblerone - 300g
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp
THE BASE Choose plain or chocolate.
Maple Syrup - 4 tbsp - optional
Butter - 100g
Digestive biscuits - 400g
Chocolate Chip Cookies - 200g
Butter - 75g


Getting Ready You will need - 1 food processor, 1 spatula, 1 23cm springform tin, 1 pot, 1 wooden spoon, 1 scissors and baking parchment.
Line the tin with the baking parchment. Use a dab of butter on the bottom and sides to keep it on.
Blitz the biscuits in the food processor, you may have to do it in batches.
Melt the butter in the pot then remove from the heat and add the biscuits from the food processor.
Mix well then pour into the springform tin. Use the wooden spoon to spread it out so that it evenly coats the entire base. Cover with cling film then place in the fridge to cool and set.
Add the toblerone to the food processor and blend to a coarse crumb
Add the cream cheese then the vanilla essence or maple syrup. Whip till thickened.
Add the cream and blend for about 1 minute more
Pour this mix into the tin on top of the biscuit base. Smooth the top over, cover with cling film and place in the fridge for about 4 hours or overnight if you can resist.
When removing from the tin, do so slowly so it doesn't crack

    Hi Liam
    When making this do you use maple syrup AND vanilla essence or just ONE of the above?
    Thanks a mill

    1. Just one Paula. I edited it there now. I had or in originally but it must have got lost in the site changeover.

    Hi Liam – this looks lovely though is it a bit soft? Would it benefit by my putting a little leaf gelatine in or would that mess it up do you think? Thanks. Ger

    1. You can use gelatine if you like Ger. I prefer not to as I don’t like the consistency so wouldn’t eat it. I loved this as it was creamy and light which matched the heavy base very well

    What if I don’t have a springform tin?

    1. You can make it in a cake tin but will have to scoop it out. You will pick up a springform tin for around €7

      Sinead I use clingfilm to line the tin as I dont have a springform tin. Just remember to leave enough over the sies of the tin so as you can use it to life the cheesecake out.oxo

      I don’t have a springform tin so I line a regular round tin with grease proof paper, and the cheesecake just lifts out.

    Would you have a particular type of food processor you’d recommend for multi purpose use such as this? Recipe looks delicious I can’t wait to try!

    1. Hi Roisin. I am a big fan of kenwood stuff as I find it lasts and gets the job done. You can get cheap food processors that won’t last long as the motors burn out or the plastic bowl breaks easily.
      I would recommend this one from D.I.D which is on special offer at the moment It is sturdy and powerful so will last. They also do it in black but it is 20 euro more.

    Do I need to whip the cream before adding to the mix? thanks

    1. You can though it is not necessary, I didn’t as it whips as soon as you add it to the cream cheese in the food processor. There is no skill in this, it happens naturally. If you are worried then whip the cream and fold it into the cream cheese mix.

    Which own brand soft cheese have you used? I am always nervous to switch

    1. I used Tesco. Some people have been reporting that Lidl and Aldi own brands aren’t setting for them.
