Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake


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'.

The 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.
