Prep: 20 Minutes
Overnight Chilling  
Serves: 10  


  • Vegetable oil 
  • 200g digestive biscuits 
  • 80g melted unsalted butter 
  • 250g mini eggs 
  • 400g soft cheese, full-fat 
  • 150g icing sugar 
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste  
  • 400g double cream  


Step 1: Using the vegetable oil, coat the inside of a 20cm deep springform cake tin and line the tin using baking parchment.  

Step 2: Crush the digestive biscuits by placing them into a plastic food bag and use a rolling pin to roll over the biscuits until they are broken into small pieces or use the Morphy Richards Blender to blitz to a fine crumb.  

Step 3: Add the melted butter to the crushed digestive biscuits then press the mixture into the base of the prepared baking tin and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.  

Step 4: To make the cheesecake filling, roughly chop half of the chocolate mini eggs and put them to one side. Then, using the Morphy Richards MixStar whisk together the soft cheese, icing sugar and vanilla bean paste until just combined. Following this, in a separate bowl use an electric whisk to beat the double cream to stiff peaks.  

Step 5: Next, gently fold the whipped double cream into the soft cheese mixture and add in the chopped chocolate mini eggs. Remove your biscuit base from the fridge, spoon the cheesecake mixture over the top and smooth the surface using a spatula or palette knife. Then place the cheesecake into your fridge and allow it to chill over-night.  

Step 6: The next day, carefully remove the mini egg cheesecake from the tin and decorate the top of the cheesecake using the remaining whole chocolate mini eggs.
