Ingredients

  • 15 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 2 tbsp of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 packages of creamed cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup of International Delight sweet cream (or an additional 1/2 cup of heavy cream)
  • gel food colouring (the colour of your choice)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • 1 pouch of gelatin
  • Cadbury chocolate Mini Eggs
  • Whipped cream and sprinkles to decorate

Instructions

  • Put the vanilla wafers in a Ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  • Dump the wafer crumbs into a bowl and mix in melted butter to create the cheesecakes' base.
  • In a silicon muffin tray divide up the base into 6 muffin cups. Press them down with a spoon to make sure that they're packed tightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  • Add the heavy cream to this mixture and beat. Then, add the International Delight sweet cream and beat.
  • Be sure to mix the batter well after each addition of cream in order to keep it smooth. Add the lemon juice, vanilla and pinch of salt.
  • In another small bowl, add the food colouring to 2 tbsp of water and mix well. Microwave this for 30 seconds to make sure it's dissolved and liquid.
  • Make sure that the cheese mixture is at room temperature before you add the food colouring. This is will avoid lumps in your dessert.
  • Add the food colouring gelatin mixture to the cheese mixture and blend until smooth.
  • Separate cheese mixture into 3 or 4 bowls and add the food coloring.
  • Place a spoonful of each colour in the muffin cups.
  • Layer the colours until the cups are full.
  • Chill the cheesecakes for at least 1 hour, or freeze overnight.
  • Once chilled, pop each one out of the container and then decorate the tops with whipped cream and Mini Eggs!
