Honeycomb Cheesecake Slice - another family favourite


Honeycomb Cheesecake Slice
2 cups plain chocolate biscuit crumbs

4 oz (125g) melted butter

1/2 cup caster sugar

1/2 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons Gelatine

1 tablespoon water

3 Violet Crumble bars (break into small bits)

2 x 8oz (250g) packets cream cheese, softened


Lightly grease 8" x 12" shallow pan, line with paper. Can also make in a springform pan. Combine biscuit crumbs and butter in a bowl and mix well. Press evenly over base of prepared pan and refrigerate for 30 mins.Beat cream cheese, sugar and sour cream until light and fluffy. Sprinkle Gelatine over water in cup, stand in small pan of simmering water, stir until dissolved and cool slightly. While beating, pour the Gelatine mixture into cream cheese. Fold in 2/3 of broken Violet Crumble. Pour the mixture over the biscuit base and refrigerate until set. Sprinkle over remaining violet crumble before serving.
Instead of the violet crumble bars I used some failsafe dark chocolate and honeycomb, which I pulsed in the food processor. The remains of this were sprinkled on top of the finished cheesecake.
Enjoy!
Take care of you
