  • 80g plain digestive biscuits
  • 30g melted butter



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 180g light soft cheese
  • 180g quark



    This is a soft, smooth curd cheese with a refreshingly light acidity. It ranges from low-fat…

  • 30g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 12 Maltesers, bashed with a rolling pin until finely crushed (about 30g)
  • 6 solid Maltesers Mini Bunnies ®, halved to decorate


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line 12-holes of a cupcake tin with paper cases (double up if your cases are quite thin). Crush the biscuits in a sandwich bag with a rolling pin or in a food processor, and mix with the melted butter until it looks like damp sand.

  2. Put a tbsp of the mix into the cases, and use the back of a spoon to pack the mixture in to make a solid base. Bake for 5 mins.

  3. For the filling, beat the soft cheese and quark with a whisk until smooth. Gradually add the sugar, then the cornflour, until everything is mixed in thoroughly. Slowly whisk in the vanilla and the eggs, and finally fold in the Maltesers. Divide the mixture between the cases.

  4. Put in the oven and lower the temperature to 110C/90C fan/gas ¼. Bake for 20-25 mins until the tops are set. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 mins in the tins. Remove from the tin and leave to cool completely. Push the Maltesers mini bunny ears and bottoms gently into the top of the cooled cheesecakes, and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hr before serving.

Hi, Esther from the food team here! We'd recommend using cream cheese instead. Be aware this will effect the nutrition. Thanks for your question!

Thanks for your question. We'd suggest using reduced-fat digestive biscuits if you want less fat. Low fat spreads may not set sufficiently in the base.
