Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a cheesecake. If I'm eating out and there is a cheesecake on the menu, I WILL make room for it and any ensuing indigestion is well worth it in my opinion. Similarly, if you turn up at my house on a high day or holiday you'll find a homemade cheesecake being served. I just never get bored of them and have been known to polish off a slice for breakfast on occasion. One of my all time favourite cheesecake recipes is a baked raspberry one that gets an outing several times a year at the request of friends and family. Despite my tried and tested recipe, I thought it was about time that I developed something new to add to my cheesecake repertoire.

This no bake Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake was by all accounts a bit of a revelation.... in taste and looks! It's definitely got the WOW factor and I'm very glad I decided to 'branch out'.

Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel CheesecakeThe base of the cheesecake is made from crushed milk chocolate digestive biscuits mixed with melted butter, although ordinary digestives would also work fine. The creamy middle is a mixture of full fat cream cheese and double cream, interspersed with pieces of chocolate honeycomb (crushed up Cadburys Crunchie bars in this case). Finally, the topping, described by my eldest as 'epic' is a simple salted caramel sauce made with Cornish Sea Salt's new delicate salt flakes and more crushed up Crunchie bars - you can't overdo them, promise!

It turned out so well I'm very tempted to make this cheesecake one of my Christmas desserts to offer the pudding haters .... yep, I've already started planning my Christmas menu. What can I say, the lure of Nigella Christmas just gets too strong from September onwards.

Hopefully I've done enough to sell it to you. Seriously though, you really MUST try it..... everyone needs a cheesecake like this in their lives and for something that looks so amazing it really is a very simple recipe.

Just to make you aware the ingredient amounts listed for the salted caramel sauce make way more than you need but I like to keep a bowl in the fridge to drizzle over ice cream and brownies. It will sit happily in the fridge for a week or so.

  2. This looks and sounds incredible! Salted caramel is one of my favourite things, and I love the idea of using chocolate digestives for the base instead of plain biscuits :)

  11. If my Caramel is very runny, do I need to go back and reheat it?? Ive let it sit in the fridge over night and was wondering if it was meant to just be runny? Many thanks

    1. Hi - mine was quite runny. It shouldn't affect the taste, just drizzle on sparingly on the top so it doesn't all slide off. Put all the extra sauce in a jug so people can pour more over if they want to.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!


TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
