Honeycomb Cheesecake

I am not a big cheesecake fan, but my dad is! So since they were coming over for dinner, I thought I would have a go at making my first cheesecake, especially when I had a bag of failsafe honeycomb that I thought would be lovely crushed through it, and it was!

250g biscuits (I used Arnotts milk arrowroot)
140g butter/nuttelex
250g Honeycomb
500g Philly cheese
180g cream
70g castor sugar
dash vanilla essence

Lightly grease and line a 24cm spring-form cake tin.
Crush biscuits in Thermomix for 7 sec on speed 7. Set aside.
Melt butter on 60 deg speed 3 for 2 mins.
Add the crushed biscuits and combine together on speed 3 for 10 seconds.

Spread mixture into the base of the tin and press down.

Place honeycomb into thermomix bowl. Chop for 4 sec on speed 5 or until crushed into little pieces. Set aside.

Place philly cheese, cream, sugar and vanilla into bowl. Mix on speed 5 for 15 sec to combine.
Add honeycomb (leave a small amount to garnish the top of the cheese cake) and mix together on speed 4 for 2 sec.
Pour mixture on top of biscuit base and smooth over the top. Sprinkle the remaining honeycomb over the top. Place into the fridge to set for a few hours before serving.

Another way to serve the cheesecakes is to make little individual ones in silicon cup cake moulds. I drizzled a generous amount of Honeycomb syrup all over it and sprinkled with extra honeycomb. Divine!

    where do you get honeycomb? as i have never heard of this before…

    • Shannon, you can buy plain honeycomb at some health food stores or confectionery shops. Usually it is most commonly sold coated in chocolate, finding it plain requires a little more searching, and always check the ingredients just to make sure it is actually failsafe. Otherwise Allergy Train sell it in their on line store. It is possible to make your own if you google a recipe, I have yet to try. 🙂

    Thank-you – I will order some… making it seems a bit too adventurous for me!

  3. Looks yum, just wondering how long it will keep, mostly wondering if the honeycomb goes soggy? Thx

    • Hi Bonnie, The honeycomb that is mixed into the cheesecake lasts fine, if you are making it a day or two before serving I would leave the garnish honeycomb in an air tight container and add right before serving. Cheesecakes are supposed to be ok to keep in the fridge for up to a week, though they are usually demolished well and truly before then. 😉

  4. Omg!!! This is amazing. Made it and honeycomb from scratch. Best. Dessert. Ever!
