Cheesecake O'Clock!

Not sure how to serve your box of 12 New York New York Minis?? - try some of these suggestions..


1) Rocky Road - break 1 finger of shortbread into 3 chunks, arrange on top of cheesecake with maltesars and pink & white marshmallows.

2) Caramelised macadamia - spread a layer of dulce de leche toffee over cheesecake. To caramelise macadamias - put 100g of caster sugar in a pan, turn on heat and let it start to dissolve (do not stir just shake and keep moving) once it starts turning golden and all sugar has dissolved add the macadamia nuts and stir with a spoon until coated. Carefully remove from pan - leave to cool and use to decorate the middle of the cheesecake.

3) Strawberry brownie - cut brownie into chunks, add chopped strawberry pieces

4) Nutty Chocolate - Cut toblerone into chunky pieces and scatter on top of cheesecake

5) Chocolate profiterole - Place a cream filled profiterole into the centre of the cheesecake, pour over approx 20g of dark chocolate fudge sauce and let it flow randomly over cheesecake.

6) Raspberry Pavlova - Place a whole meringue nest onto cheesecake - crush it slightly and place 3 fresh raspberries in the middle.

7) Brandy snap rolls - Whip some double cream sweetened to taste with caster sugar until thick enough to pipe. Fill piping bag fitted with a small star nozzle. Take one brandy snap roll and pipe the cream into the middle. Place in freezer for 10 minutes to firm up. Remove brandy snap from freezer, cut in half and arrange on top of cheesecake. Finish with a dusting of icing sugar.

8) Cookie & cream - Break 3 oreo cookies into 2/3 pieces each - arrange on top of cheesecake

9) Choc chip cookie - Break up chocolate chip cookie pieces over the cheesecake and sprinkle some dark baking chips over the top

10) Winter Forest fruit - Combine a mixture of raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants and spoon onto cheesecake, finish with a dusting of icing sugar.

11) Banoffee - Drizzle dulce de leche toffee over the cheesecake using a piping bag, top with 3 banana slices and some crumbled flake chocolate

12) Mint Crush - Cut three after dinner mints in half diagonally, arrange on top of cheesecake and crumble some mint aero balls over the top

Arrange on a cake stand or black slate and wow your guests - decisions, decisions! Or have the toppings ready separately in bowls and let your guests top their own - cheesecake party!
