TikTok’s chocolate egg cheesecake recipe is an absolute must-try

The only way to eat them.

Hard to believe, but Easter is almost upon us, and the shops are filling up with chocolate Easter eggs of all shapes and sizes and varieties.

Now, don't get us wrong, we love Easter eggs as they are – and have been known to sample our way through quite the selection over Easters gone by. However – what if there was a way to make your Easter egg seriously extra (or egg-stra, if you will) this year?

Turns out, there is.

Say hello to chocolate egg cheesecakes – a trend that first saw the light of day on TikTok last Easter, and that have already started doing the rounds again. And honestly, it is easy to see why.

The no-bake cheesecake Easter egg trend is – quite literally – a cheesecake created and served in a halved Easter egg - and as for toppings and combinations, your options are endless.

Single serving, quick and simple, we dare say these are the perfect treat for an Easter break together. And even better? You don’t even need a tin so there’s hardly any washing up!

Instructions

Step 1

Carefully split the Easter egg in two. We recommend using a sharp, warmed knife to run slowly over the seam - you don’t want your egg to crack!

Step 2

Crush the Digestive biscuits. Our preferred method is with a rolling pin and a ziplock bag.

Step 3

Melt the butter and add to the Digestive mix until it has all been absorbed.

Step 4

Spoon the biscuit mix into the two egg halves and smooth down with either your fingers or a tablespoon. Once firm, place in the fridge while you make your filling.

Step 5

Place the cream cheese, sugar and double cream into a bowl and whisk your troubles away until the mixture is thick and stiff. Then fold in your vanilla.

Step 6

Spoon the mixture evenly between the two halves and smooth over to make the top level for decoration.

Step 7

Top your creation with the decoration of your choice. A drizzle of melted chocolate and a handful of Mini Eggs is our fave - simple and effective. Place them in the fridge and allow to set for 2 hours (alongside any additional mixture you may have to keep it fresh).

Step 8

Take it out of the fridge and enjoy!
