After Eight baked cheesecake

Let me introduce you the best recipe for After Eight baked cheesecake – creamy and rich cheesecake loaded with mint and chocolate flavour!

The story is this, I am a minto-chocoholic. Just adore all things mint and chocolaty and I think I got it after my Mum as it it her absolutely favourite. So, when I realised I had few packs of After Eight in my cupboard I decided to whip up this wonderful After Eight baked cheesecake. In fact, I should call it a Triple After Eight baked cheesecake as it has loads After Eights in the filling, a very generous amount of After Eight ganache on top and whole pack of After Eight as decorations.

How to make After Eight baked cheesecake?

I will always say that making cheesecake is easy but it is quite technical.

Creating particular parts of this cheesecake ( cookie bottom, cheesecake filling and chocolate ganache) do not requite any special skills.

In order to make this cheesecake right, I would recommend baking it with a water bath. By water bath I mean that you should feel a deep dish with water and place it inside your oven. Ideally below your cheesecake. Water bath will make your cheesecake creamy! Cooking temperature is important as well. The best way to bake cheesecake is to bake it slow and in a low temperature.

What does After Eight baked cheesecake taste like?

It is very creamy and rich. Here I want to say rich and sweet and probably one piece has a 1000 calories but it is sooo worth it. At the end of the day a marvellous slice of cheesecake from time to time will not do any harm. Crumbly cocoa cookie base, dreamy mint and chocolate cheesecake filling loaded with chopped After Eight and a ridiculous amount of After Eight chocolate ganache on top. Moreover I have decorated this wonderful cheesecake with more After Eights and fresh cherries for a wow effect. All of the above makes this dessert an absolute showstopper!
