Easter Egg Cheesecake- Vegan & Dairy Free

All you need is a vegan dark chocolate Easter egg , cream cheese & some biscuits:

The ingredients are more than enough to fill 1 whole Easter egg – 2 halves.

For the base

• 15 g (0.5 oz) Flora or vegan butter

• 85 g (3 oz) digestive biscuits crushed

For the filling

• 200 g (7.1 oz) vegan cream cheese (We used Violife)

• 35 g (1.2 oz) icing sugar

• 100 ml (3.4 floz) vegan double cream ( I had run out so used some of the vegan squirty cream as replacement)

To decorate

• 25 g melted dark chocolate

• A Biscoff/ Oreo or if you can source any vegan chocolate mini eggs.

• 10 g Grated dark chocolate

I used a Bourneville Dark Chocolate Easter Egg.

Method:

  • Chill the Easter egg in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Take a hot knife ( I ran it under the kettle) and slowly carefully seperate the egg gently by inserting the sharp knife along the edge.
  • Prepare the biscuit base by crushing the biscuits into small crumbs.
  • Heat the vegan butter in a pan until melted.
  • Pour the melted butter into the biscuit crumbs.
  • Mix the butter & biscuit crumbs well it should resemble wet sand.
  • Carefully press the mixture into the shell of the egg.

Biscuit base – Easter Egg cheesecake

  • Chill the biscuit filled egg in the fridge whilst you prepare the cheesecake mixture.
  • Mix the vegan cream cheese with the icing sugar & cream.
  • Place in the egg on top of the biscuit base.
  • Take the melted chocolate and drizzle or swirl over the top – you can use a skewer to make a marble effect.
  • Decorate as you like with grated chocolate – a biscoff , Oreo or any vegan Easter mini eggs or bunnies you can find.
