Toblerone Cheesecake

This is just for Staci

1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate biscuits
80 gm melted butter
500gm cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup thickened cream
200g block of Toblerone

Combine crushed biscuits and melted butter and press into the base of a small (app 25cm) springform tin. Refrigerate while you're making the filling.
Beat together the cream cheese and the sugar with an electric mixer then add the cream. Melt the Toblerone in a separate bowl (either over a saucepan of simmering water or in the microwave for about 1 min). Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base and refrigerate for at least 3 hrs or overnight. Top with cream and berries. Most importantly only have small slices cause this is REALLY rich.

It was my oldest baby Sam's birthday on Friday and he wanted cheesecake. One huge slice later and I think he's been cured of this love.

Apart from celebrating birthdays (Sam's, Dad's and my Aunt) we've had the most glorious winter weather that just invites you out to run. It was cool and dry and the skies were blue and cloudless.

I'd had a 21k run with the group on Saturday but in the back of my mind I thought it'd be fun to run to Sam's soccer match on Sunday. And it was - except for the hills!

The photo doesn't do it justice but this was the last 200m of a kilometer long hill - ughhh!

The run ended up being just over 8k and 4 hills long and I arrived just after kick-off.

Sam is the one on the right.

Great game (we won 4-3). Great weekend (29k run). Great cheesecake (damn, I'm glad I ran 29k)


  1. Great weekend for sure! That cheesecake looks wickedly delicious.

  2. Well, I hope that recipe wasn't *just* for Staci, because I will be trying it, too! Yummy!

  3. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
    I will be making this soooo very soon and my excuse is .... just because.
    Thanks Char

  4. Happy birthday to your son!
    A great long run and a delicios cheesecake, it's perfect :)

  5. Great weekend and great running! I'm steeling the recipe. Unless I can get Staci to invite me over. Glad I could surprise you with the caeser on a fish.:)

  6. Oh man does that look dangerous! What a great weekend for you.

  7. Photos never do those darn hills justice!

  8. See, I don't think I'd enjoy this as much if I made it but if someone else made it and I could just eat it and enjoy it without knowing all the stuff that is in it then I would enjoy it soooo much more! Looks so yummy! My mouth is seriously watering.

  9. Great you're having such awesome weather - and why is it that hills never look as bad in a photo as they do in reality???

  10. I miss cool & dry conditions - glad you got to enjoy it.

    The cake looks & sounds DEVINE!

  11. Ok you can say it's just for staci but I'm stealing it too.

    Looks like a fab weekend with fab running. Love it.
