No-Bake Mini Eggs Cheesecake

Is there anyone who doesn't like the smell of mini eggs? 

For a long time I didn't eat Cadbury's chocolate, but each year as Easter rolled around I would love it when Paul would open a bag of Mini Eggs, and I could enjoy the smell! I do eat Cadbury's now, so I also get to enjoy the eggs but the smell is still my favourite part.

It reminds me of those dolls I had as a child. The ones that looked like a cupcake until you flip them open? They smelled of cake and Mini Eggs, but anyway, the recipe...

I wanted to make something for Easter this year, and it usually ends up being something baked, like carrot cake, cupcakes, something hot. But this year I though why not cheesecake. It's a simple no-bake cheesecake that tastes good on the day you make it but amazing the day after! So if you can make it in advance you should. I will also say that we like quite a think base to our cheesecakes, so if you prefer less then just half the quantity of biscuits and butter.

- Add the crushed digestives and melted butter to a bowl and mix together until fully combined. Pour this into a loose bottom cake tin and press it down with the back of a spoon until you have a firm even layer. Put this in the fridge to set while you get on with the topping.

- To a large mixing bowl, add the Philadelphia, mascarpone and icing sugar and mix until smooth. In a separate bowl beat the double cream and vanilla until until you have soft peaks, and then fold this into your cheese mixture.

- Add your crushed up mini eggs to the topping mixture and then spread this on top of the chilled base, and level out the top. Leave this in the fridge to set for at least 5 hours, or over night if you can -trust me, it's worth it.

- Decorate however you like, I added extra Mini Eggs, and serve straight from the fridge.
