Instructions

You will also need

20cm springform tin

Method

Preheat the oven to 180˚C degrees, (160˚C degrees for fan ovens), gas mark 4.

Blitz the Cheerios in a food processor to form crumbs, and then put these into a bowl and mix with the melted butter to make the base mix. Pour the base mix into a 20cm springform tin and press them down to form an even layer. Place the tin into the oven and bake for 10 minutes until golden. Leave the tin to the side to cool completely.

In a jug, mix the hot water, instant coffee, honey and vanilla extract to form a sweetened, strong coffee.

Whip the cream cheese in a bowl to loosen it. Pour the coffee in and stir to combine.

Whisk the double cream in a separate bowl with an electric hand mixer for 3-4 until it forms medium peaks. Fold the cream cheese mixture and grated chocolate into the cream. Pour the cheesecake mixture over your base and then place in the fridge to set for an hour and a half.

Remove the cheesecake from the tin and decorate with the KitKat Mini bunnies and Smarties Mini eggs before serving.

Tip

Dip a palette knife under hot water, dry on a tea towel and then run around the edge of the cheesecake in the tin to help release it and give a smooth edge.

    We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:

     

    Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?
    For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world, because we want to keep on making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency on all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children’s products.
    What are the health and nutritional benefits of Nestlé Gluten Free Corn Flakes?

    As well as being a healthy choice for people who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, or have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Gluten Free Corn Flakes are fortified with B-vitamins, folic acid and iron

    How can I find foods made with whole grain?
    Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.
    I’ve heard a low GI diet can help me lose weight. Is this true?
    It’s too early to say. The science in this area is still emerging. There is evidence that low GI foods take longer to digest and help you feel satisfied for longer, but none that you’ll eat fewer calories at the next meal.
    Why does Nestlé label vegetable oil?
    Because it’s industry practice to label seasonal oils (oils that aren’t consistently available across the year). In Europe it’s now mandatory to detail the types of vegetable oils used in a food product. So it’s no longer permitted to use the term “vegetable oil” on a label.
