Recipe: Strawberry Jelly Cheesecake II

I made these cheesecake bites again but tweaked the recipe by a bit ^^ Added more melted butter to the digestive biscuits this time as the previous ones were too crumbly and its hard to cut them up ):

1 1/4 cup hot boiling water

300g digestive biscuits (fine crumbs)

100g butter (melted)

500g cream cheese (room temperature)

2/3 cup sugar

15 strawberries

1 small packet of jelly mix

Directions:

  1. Mix together gelatin to hot boiling water and set aside to cool.
  2. Mix melted butter with digestive biscuit crumbs, then press the mixture flat on your prepared pan and refrigerate.
  3. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until soft and creamy, then add in the warm gelatin mixture.
  4. If it is lumpy, continue beating for 1 minute. The mixture will be runny, but do not worry.
  5. Pour the mixture in your prepared pan, on top of the crust and refrigerate.
  6. Now prepare your strawberries by washing them and cutting them into half.
  7. When that is done, place them on the surface of the cheesecake mixture and refrigerate overnight.
  8. Once the mixture as firmed up, prepare your jelly according to packet instructions and pour in slowly over the cheesecake.

Recipe: Chocolate Cornflakes

I was asked if I make chocolate cornflakes for Chinese New Year as it has always been a hit during this festive period. However, it always didn’t seem like a challenge to me as it only requires 2 ingredients to make, thus I’ve never tried making it before, neither have I eaten it before. However, few days ago, my colleague made those and had leftover chocolate and cornflakes. So she gave it to me and I decided to give this snack a go. It was sooooo good, except for this chocolate part as I used compound chocolate.

I didn’t weigh out the amount of chocolate I used to make these cornflakes so the amount might differ.

Chocolate cornflakes

Yields 62 petite cup liners

250g-300g dark compound chocolate

1 box cornflakes cereal (medium box)

Directions:

  1. Melt the compound chocolate in a large bowl over double boiler (bain marie).
  2. *Turn off the heat once fully melted and pour cornflakes into bowl, stirring well until cornflakes are well coated with chocolate.
  3.  While mixture is still warm, quickly spoon mixture into individual cups. (do it fast like a ninja cause compound chocolate hardens easily)

*At this point, continue placing your bowl on the double boiler so that the compound chocolate remains liquid.

Thats it. Pretty easy huh?
