Maltesers Cheesecake (No Bake)

No Bake Maltesers Cheesecake

If you’re British or have spent time there you will know of the delicious chocolate covered malted milk balls called Maltesers. If you’re from American you will know them as Whoppers! I only discovered this name variation when writing this recipe and I quite like it! Whatever you call them, they are a super popular treat, and especially enjoyed at the cinema. I love these crunchy malt balls and I’ve based this No Bake Maltesers Cheesecake on them. The biscuit base is malted milk biscuits, then I mixed melted Malteser Teasers into the filling, and the top is decorated with milk chocolate, crushed Maltesers and whipped cream. It’s Maltesers heaven!

How to make Maltesers Cheesecake…

To make the base I mixed crushed malted milk biscuits and melted butter together. I pressed them into the base of a springform tin. For the filling I mixed cream cheese and icing sugar together using an electric mixer.

I added the melted Malteser Teasers to the filling, then whisked in the double cream until the mixture thickened.

I added the filling to the tin and smoothed it out, then it went in the fridge for several hours to set.

How do I make sure the cheesecake sets?

When you’re mixing the filling, you want it to get to a stage where you can scoop some up with your spatula or spoon and you have to give it a tap on the side of the bowl or slight flick of the wrist to get the mixture off the spoon. If it’s sloppy and slides right off the spoon without any encouragement needed, then you need to mix it more. Always use an electric mixer for best results. It’s also very important to use full fat cream cheese and double cream (heavy cream), as any low fat versions will affect the setting of the cheesecake. I always set my cheesecake overnight in the fridge, I’d suggest a minimum of 4 hours.

Tips for making the Maltesers Cheesecake:

  • If you can’t get hold of the Maltesers Teasers, or don’t want to use them, you can use melted milk chocolate instead for the cheesecake filling. Or you can omit the chocolate and add 2 tsp vanilla for a nice flavour.
  • I used malted milk biscuits for the base, you can use digestive biscuits if you prefer, just increase the butter to 135g.
  • You could also decorate the cheesecake with some melted Malteser Spread or Malteser buttons!

    I have a feeling that these could be the cheesecake that changes my son’s mind about not liking cheesecake (weird I know) but if not more for the rest of us! Thank you for sharing with #cookBlogShare.

      Made this with my children. Absolutely delicious and really big so lots of people got to try and everyone was very impressed. Will definitely make again. We didn’t melt the maltesers just chopped and we substituted chocolate digestive for malt biscuits

      1. I’m so pleased to hear everyone enjoyed it! Thank you so much for your lovely feedback 🙂

    1. Hi Andrea, you can freeze it once it has been set in the fridge and removed from the tin. However, I do not recommend freezing it with the whipped cream and Maltesers on top. I hope you enjoy the cheesecake!
