Malteser Cheesecake

Oh my goodness this was good but not for the faint hearted! I felt compelled to do a 3 mile run the morning after the night before. A little slice goes a long way.

I was trialling this for the safari supper that I'm hosting in August and it's definitely going on the menu! Now I've just got to figure out what else I'm going to make to feed 100+ people - eeek!!

Meal Plan 7th July - 13th July 2014

I've also been asked to host the dessert course for the village Safari Supper in August which means 100+ people through my house - and making enough desserts to feed them all. I haven't firmed up what I'm going to make yet so need to do that asap!
I made a really nice pot roast chicken in a creamy tarragon sauce on Saturday which I will blog soon and trialled a couple of cheesecakes for the Safari Supper. I also planted some more herbs in my herb garden which is pretty much fit to bursting - will post some photo's soon.
