  • 105 g caster sugar

  • Make the crust: Lightly coat mini ring mould pans with cooking spray [alternatively grease a 9 inch pan and follow the same steps.]

  • Place the nuttikrust biscuits in a food processor. Process into crumbs. Drizzle in the melted butter and process until the crumbs start to clump together. Scoop the buttery crumbs in the coated mini pans.

  • Dissolve the gelatin: Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup. Stir to moisten – it should look like applesauce. Set aside for 5 minutes to soften. Once softened, microwave the gelatin for 25 seconds, until the gelatin is dissolved and liquid.
    Set aside to cool.

  • For the filling;
    In a large mixing bowl, beat the 425ml of heavy cream until medium peaks form. Set aside.
  • Heat the chocolate plus 75ml of cream. Add this to the dissolved gelatin mix. Stir until well combined. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, caster sugar and vanilla until smooth. Slowly pour in the chocolate, cream and gelatin mix. Then slowly fold in the whipped 425ml of cream.
  • Divide batter evenly better between the cups. (You can use a scoop or pastry bag to pipe in to the cups.)


Refrigerate for at least 8 hours to set or overnight for the best results.
