Our indulgent Easter cheesecake is so easy to throw together, it almost feels like cheating! The chocolate hazelnut lovers in your life will be begging you for the recipe. 

Tip: For best results, serve your cheesecake straight from the fridge. Garnish with extra chopped hazelnuts and decorate with Easter eggs. 

Tip: If you prefer a thicker base, just throw a few extra digestives into the food processor! 

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Cook time: 0 minutes +  setting time 

Ingredients 

  • 1 packet Pams Chocolate Digestives, roughly broken  
  • 75g Pams Butter, softened

  • 500g cream cheese, room temperature 
  • ½ cup Pams Icing Sugar (sifted)

  3. Beat the cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth, then add the remaining hazelnut spread. Continue beating until combined.
