Mars Bar Cheesecake

//Mars Bar Cheesecake

The old “roadies” here know how much I looooooooooove cheesecake. My blog has quite a few in it.

You can use any chocolate bar you like in place of the Mars Bar.

A more cost effective option for the base is using a plain biscuit and 15g cocoa powder.

When using cream cheese without gelatine for cheesecake be sure to buy the full fat version and the non spreadable version otherwise your cheesecake may not set. I find the Philadelphia blocks or Homebrand tubs work best for these no bake cheesecakes.
