15 Minute Rocky Road Cheesecake

fifteen minute rocky road cheesecake feature

 

Rocky Road, Cheesecake and Tim Tams all rolled into one marvellous package, what’s not to love?

Think no fuss and by that I mean NO BAKING and NO DISSOLVING GELATINE, also think super delicious, rich, chocolaty edible heaven on a plate and you’ll be a few steps closer to knowing how amazing this 15 Minute Rocky Road Cheesecake really is.

Chocolate lovers I know I’ve said this before but you are in the right place!!!

Desserts that look the goods, taste delectable and require minimal time and effort to create are my cup of tea, this 15 Minute Rocky Road Cheesecake fits that bill perfectly!

It seems you guys think along the same lines……. my 15 Minute Ferrero Rocher & Nutella Cheesecake and my 15 Minute Salted Caramel Cheesecakes, have been super popular ever since I introduced them too you not so long ago.

To call apples, ‘apples’ this is not your standard run of the mill cheesecake, as I mentioned above there’s no gelatine involved (you don’t have to worry about lumps), there isn’t any baking required (definitely a dessert for the time poor), but there is mascarpone cheese and it looks like a cake so in my eyes that’s a version of a cheesecake.

I’m not fibbing when I say 15 minutes, it’s just a matter of pressing some delicious Raspberry Tim Tam biscuit crumbs into your pan, positioning some big marshmallow snow drops, adding your 3 ingredient chocolate filling, pushing some raspberries into the mix, smoothing it all off, a tiny bit of fridge time (you can get stuck in straight away, it may just be a little soft and more delicate to handle, call it deconstructed I guarantee it will taste just as good ), then decorate however you please with some marshmallows, dessert toppings, shredded coconut, plus more raspberries and macadamias. HEY PRESTO!

Christmas is still 101 sleeps away (yes I’m counting), BUT it’s never too early to start thinking about food to celebrate with. Christmas is such a delicious time of year, and cheesecakes definitely add to the deliciousness! Just saying, hehehehe.

Seriously though you can enjoy this little treasure at any time of the year, who says you have to have an excuse? NOT ME! Go for it!

 

Here’s your How-To:

A few key players, just so you know what you’re looking for at the supermarket.

Recipe type: Cheesecakes
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • BASE
  • 2 x 165g Pkts Choc Raspberry Tim Tams
  • 50g Macadamia nuts
  • 60g butter melted
  • FILLING
  • 1 cup thickened cream
  • 500g (2 tubs) mascarpone cheese
  • 400g Dark Chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 x 200g pkt Coles Snow Drops (8 large marshmallows covered in chocolate sprinkled with coconut)
  • 1 cup raspberries (I used frozen raspberries)
  • TOPPING
  • ¼ cup Berry topping (I used Coles Mixed Berry Topping)
  • ⅓ cup Chocolate fudge topping (I used Coles Chocolate Fudge Topping)
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup raspberries (I used frozen raspberries)
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 50g macadamias quartered
Instructions
  1. Grease and line base of a 24cm spring form cake tin
  2. Combine biscuit crumbs and macadamias, whiz in a food processor to fine crumbs then add butter and whiz again until you have a fine moist crumb mixture.
  3. Press crumbs into the base of spring form tin, pop in fridge.
  4. Meanwhile whip cream in a bowl with electric mixer until thick and just peaking.
  5. Add mascarpone cheese and melted Chocolate to cream, fold through until well combined, mixture will be quite thick.
  6. Grab that tin back out of the fridge. Position 7 Snow drops around the outside edge of biscuit base (see picture above). Spoon half the chocolate mixture over the snow drops and press mixture in and around.
  7. Sprinkle 1 cup of raspberries over the top of chocolate cheesecake layer and gently push into the mixture.
  8. Spoon remaining chocolate cheesecake mixture over the top and again gently press mixture down into place to form a flat top. Even out with the back of a spoon or knife.
  9. Cover with foil and place in fridge for 3 hours, overnight is fine too.
  10. Note: if you want to enjoy this little treasure a whole lot quicker, serve it up in individual glasses, (I'd recommend sprinkling biscuit crumb mixture into a glass and forming a ball of the chocolate cheesecake mixture and positioning on top of biscuit crumbs, decorate with topping however you see fit (just go crazy!)
  11. For the full cake decorate just before serving.
  12. Remove side support from spring form tin.
  13. Drizzle a little chocolate fudge topping over cake to give it a little extra stick then top by sprinkling marshmallows, frozen raspberries, shredded coconut and macadamias over the top. Drizzle Berry and Chocolate fudge topping over the lot (I used snap lock bags for the drizzling bit, just snip a corner off and away you go!)
  14. Cut when ready to serve.
  15. Enjoy as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  16. Cheesecake/s will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

I was recently sent a  Delicake container designed for no bake recipes, I used it instead of my spring form tin for this cheesecake, you can read more about it here. Quite the nifty little idea!

Have you got any suggestions for a new flavour combo to add to this little 15 minute cheesecake family of mine?

Until the next time…….

      You’re a sweetie Renee, thank you. It’s a little firmer than the Ferrero Rocher one and tangier (but good tangy) with those raspberries, I can’t wait to make it for a gathering! 15 minute making is always a plus! Have a beautiful weekend lovely xx

    This looks absolutely delicious! I just tried out the recipe but the chocolate basically solidified as i was mixing it into the cheesecake mixture and it ended up with this horrible grainy texture… I left all ingredients out on the bench for an hour to get it to room temperature too, any suggestions?

    Reply
    1. Dannielle

      Hey Bianca. Sorry you’ve had trouble. I do find the mixture really thick it’s certainly not as smooth and silky as a traditional cheesecake, you do need to work fairly quickly with the chocolate mixture, pushing it in and around, I didn’t find it grainy though? Mmmm I would get it pressed into the tin straight away (don’t let it sit), have the base and marshmallows positioned and ready for the chocolate mixture. Hope you get some success, let me know how you go. 🙂

      Reply
    2. Dannielle

      Just another thought Bianca…. if you were after a smoother consistency try substituting 500g softened cream cheese for the mascarpone that should work too 🙂

    Hi Dannielle!! OMG this looks absolutely amazing!!! Going to a dinner party on Friday so really want to try this!! But for people with nut allergies, what could I substitute for the Macadamia nuts? Or do I just leave them out of the base and not put anything in its place?

    Reply
    1. Dannielle

      Hi Jaya
      Thanks for your sweet words.
      I would just leave the nuts out completely, will still be delicious…… Or if you’re feeling daring you could substitute clinkers 😉
      This mixture is quite thick to the point where you will need to press it in and around the snow top marshmallows. Next time I make it I was going to pop a thin layer of the chocolate fudge topping over the biscuit base for an extra bit of indulgence 😉
      Have a fabulous dinner party!!!
      Let me know if I can help anymore.

        Thank you so much for getting back to me Dannielle 🙂

        I’m an Australian currently living in Canada so not sure if they have clinkers over here haha (gosh I love those things!!) But I’ll have a look in the shops and see what I can find!

        The extra fudge sounds amazing, I’m all for more chocolate so I might add that for my first go, I only hope it looks half as awesome as yours does!
        Thank you for your help, much appreciated 🙂

    I was really exited about this recipe and have just made it, but I’m a lot disappointed as the chocolate turned to tiny lumps once I put it in the mixture and it’s certainly not a chocolate looking cheese cake, not like the picture. I am concerned that it’s now not going to set at all and it’s going to be just mush.

    Reply
    1. Dannielle

      Alice I’m so sorry to hear this cheesecake didn’t work out for you. It will be a thicker mixture to the point where you have to press it into the tin (not like a standard pourable cheesecake) you shouldn’t get lumps, I assure you the picture is exactly the outcome of my ingredients and method and extremely chocolaty and decadent.
      Let me know how it ended up.
      Dannielle 🙂

    I made this yesterday and was a little apprehensive after reading a couple of comments about the chocolate seizing when mixed with the cream – but no dramas at all, it was perfect!
    The only thing I would do differently is maybe add a layer of berry sauce on the base first for some extra zing, and spend a bit more time getting the mixture right down around the snowballs as I had a couple showing when I removed the tin.
    Overall it was a big hit and looks amazing 🙂

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it Andrea:)
      I love your suggestion of the berry sauce for some extra zing!
      Great work 🙂
