white choc and blueberry cheesecake in a jar


Fun Fact: I am obsessed with cheesecake. Ever since I tried making cheesecake in 'Food Technology' - which is basically a class where you get to bake and eat every week -  I was sold. 

In Germany we actually make Cheesecake very differently, using a different base and also different ingredients. That is why my first encounter with 'American Cheesecake', as it is called here, was in England, but trust me, I have never looked back since.

Today, I felt very fancy and wanted to try something new: cheesecake in a jar!

These cute little cakes are an absolutely amazing bring-along gift or party desert, as you can so easily prepare them ahead!

They are very easy to make, and oddly therapeutic! I think it is something about smashing biscuit and breaking chocolate into small pieces... It's basically the perfect heartbreak bake!

RECIPE

Ingredients:

200g plain digestive biscuits
100g butter
400g good-quality white chocolate, broken into pieces
250g full-fat cream cheese
250ml double cream
250 g mascarpone cheese
250g blueberries

You'll need

Jars
Resealable bag
Rolling pin
Heatproof bowl
2 Large bowls

HOW TO


1. Bash biscuits in a resealable bag with your hands or a rolling pin! (This should be anti aggression training)
2. Melt butter and combine to the biscuits. Add about 2 tablespoons of the base to each jar and press down using the back of a spoon or your fingers, taking a piece of baking paper to lay on top and then pushing down. Place in the fridge while preparing the other ingredients
3. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt chocolate in microwave, or in a water bath.
4. Beat cream cheese, double cream and mascarpone in a large bowl with a wooden spoon until well combined. Stir through the white chocolate and lastly fold in half of the blueberries. 
5. Spread the mixture evenly over the top of the biscuit base and garnish with a few crumbs of biscuit and two blueberries.
6. Place the jars in the fridge to chill and set for at least 2-3 hours.
7. EAT :)
