Meringue nest cheesecake with mini eggs
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 8 - 10
The easiest Easter nest you'll ever make. This no-bake cheesecake comes complete with mini eggs and the traditional chenille chicks
For the decoration
- 25g toasted coconut flakes or white chocolate curls
- 3 meringues nests
- 9 mini eggs
- hundreds and thousands
You will also need
- 3 chenille chick (optional)
- STEP 1
Grease a 18cm loose bottomed round cake tin with a little butter and line with a circle of baking paper. Melt the butter in a large heatproof bowl in the microwave or in a medium sized pan over a low heat. Whiz the chocolate digestives in a food processor until reduced to fine crumbs then tip into the melted butter. Spoon the biscuit mixture into the base of the prepared tin – press down well with the back of a spoon.
- STEP 2
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the rest of the cheesecake ingredients then pour into the tin. Smooth the top with a spatula then place in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight.
- STEP 3
When you’re ready to serve carefully transfer the cheesecake to a serving plate or cake stand and sprinkle the top with coconut flakes – making a bigger mound in the centre then arrange the meringue nests on top. Fill the nests with mini eggs, extra sprinkling of coconut, hundreds & thousands and the fluffy chicks.
