Yields:19 inch cake
Recipe byJess Holmes
Approximately 20 (200 grams) Oreo cookies
1/4cup(60 grams) unsalted butter
2and 1/2 cups (500 grams) cream cheese, room temperature
1/4cup(50 grams) granulated or caster sugar
1and 1/2 cup (360 ml) thickened or heavy cream
1cup(150 grams) good quality semi-sweet or dark chocolate
3/4cup(105 grams) roasted peanuts
2cups(110 grams) mini marshmallows
1/2cup(75 grams) semi-sweet or dark chocolate, for decorating
Lightly grease a 9 inch (23 cm) springform baking tin with a little butter and set aside. Add your Oreo cookies (cream and all) to a food processor and blend until they resemble fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, place them in a sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin. Melt your butter in the microwave and add it to your crushed Oreos and whiz again (or stir well) until the mixture resembles wet sand. Pour your Oreo mixture into your prepared tin and press down gently to form an even layer. Pop in the fridge.
Add your softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla to a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl, add your cream and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Finally, melt your dark chocolate in the microwave until it is just melted – give it a good stir. Then add your chocolate to your cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth. Then gently fold through the whipped cream. Add 1 cup (55 grams) of mini marshmallows and 1/2 cup (35 grams) of roasted peanuts and stir through. Pour your cheesecake over the top of your Oreo cookie base, cover loosely with alfoil and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
When you are ready to serve, scatter the remaining 1/2 cup (35 grams) of roasted peanuts and 1 cup (55 grams) of mini marshmallows and lightly press them into the top of the cheesecake. Melt your extra chocolate in the microwave and then use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate all over the cheesecake. Cut and serve!
