Ingredients (makes 12 )
- 2 packets Arnott's Mint Slice biscuits
- 1 packet Malt, Marie or Milk Arrowroot Biscuits
- 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 500g Cream Cheese (brought to room temperature)
- 395g Low Sugar Condensed Milk
- 200mL Cream
- 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1/2 tsp Mint Essence
- 4 tsp Gelatine Powder
- Place the 3 packets of biscuits into the bowl of a large food processor and blitz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. If you don't have a food processor, place the biscuits inside a large ziplock bag (or plastic bag) and roll with a rolling pin or heavy glass bottle until finely crushed.
- Melt the butter and add to the biscuit crumb mixture. Combine really well (either in the food processor or with a wooden spoon in a bowl).
- Spray the bottom and sides of a 25cm round springform tin. Press the biscuit crumb mixture into the tin and press down to create an even layer in the bottom of the tin. Place this into the fridge for 1/2 hour to an hour to set.
- Place all ingredients (except the gelatine powder) into the food processor and blitz for 5 minutes. Stop halfway through to scrape down the sides and ensure all lumps are being blitzed away. As the mix is blitzing sprinkle the gelatine powder into the mixture dry or dissolve the gelative in a small amount of warm water and add. If you don't have a food processor, you can achieve this step with a stand or hand electric mixer.
- Pour the cream cheese mixture onto the chilled biscuit base and sit in the fridge on a very even surface. Refrigerator at least 5 hours but preferably overnight before removing from the tin to serve.
- Decorate however you like! We had some choc crispies from the supermarket and some silver cachous but you could drizzle melted chocolate, cut After Dinner Mint Slices into triangles and sit them upright or simply reserve a small portion of the biscuit base before you add the butter and sprinkle this across the top of the cheesecake.
