Recipe by Anna Polyviou

This tasty recipe can be used to make a simple cheesecake, but Anna adds her mark by mixing the cheesecake up with crushed biscuits, jelly and fruit. You can buy push-pops in most department stores or layer the ingredients in a glass instead.

Ingredients

  • 500gm Cream cheese, room temperature
  • 150gm Caster sugar
  • 1 Whole egg, free range
  • 10ml Vanilla paste
  • 50gm White chocolate, melted 
  • 300gm Biscuits, crushed
  • 200gm Mixed berries
  • Fairy floss (optional)
  •  

For the jelly (alternatively use packet jelly)

  • 1 punnet Strawberries, green tops off
  • 50gm Caster sugar
  • 200ml Strawberry juice
  • 50ml Water
  • 10gm Gelatine sheets, softened

Serves: 15 Push pops
Prep time: 1 hour
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Tools: Food processor

Method

  1. To make the jelly: toss the strawberries in the sugar, place in a bowl and set aside overnight so the juices come out through the strawberries. Strain the strawberries and juice, but do not press the strawberries through a sieve                   
  2. Bring the strawberry juice and water to the boil, add the dissolved softened gelatine sheets. Strain and allow to cool before use (alternatively use packet jelly)
  3. Pour a small layer of jelly into each push pop or tall small glass, put in the fridge to set
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 170˚C
  5. Grease an 18-20cm cake ring (or spray with baking spray)  and place on a lined baking tray
  6. Attach the food processor and blitz the cream cheese until smooth
  7. Add in the caster sugar
  8. Slowly add the egg
  9. Add the melted chocolate with the vanilla paste
  10. Pour the mixture into the ring and bake for 30 minutes
  11. Allow to cool. Once the cheesecake is chilled, blitz it in the food processor until smooth
  12. To build your dessert in a push pop or a tall glass, layer baked cheesecake (50gm), biscuit crumbs (20gm) and mixed berries over the jelly
  13. For a really unusual effect, top with fairy floss
