Mother’s Day Treat – A Creme Egg Cheesecake Recipe

Mother’s Day Treat – A Creme Egg Cheesecake Recipe



Well all the baking is complete for the orders which I had for the “Mother’s Day” treat boxes and I am waiting for the customers to come and collect them. I can’t wait to see their faces when they see how the treats are packaged – all bows and labels surrounding a white cardboard box containing the treats which are cushioned on a bed of lilac shredded paper. All the treats are freshly baked and decorated so I hope they will enjoy them. I know I would love to receive a treat box for myself on “Mother’s Day” – but I wonder what I am going to receive off the children tomorrow?? I am not bothered about a present as I have already told my husband because I have made a Creme Egg Cheesecake for us to share tomorrow or tonight if my will power caves. ๐Ÿ™ Also, whilst at the supermarket today I bought a bar of rich dark chocolate with cherries and chilli added to it, as well as,ย  a bottle of wine andย  a couple of bunches of daffodils for the table. A nice hint of yellow for these dark, grey days we seem to be having at the moment. I hope the weather is better tomorrow and I might get out for a walk in the woods with my family. ๐Ÿ™‚

Back to the cheesecake recipe which is very similar to the Oreo Cheesecake and Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake recipe but using Creme Eggs instead. As I have said before this cheesecake recipe is a very versatile recipe and you can add whatever you want to the recipe. I have changed it only slightly as when I made it today there was too much biscuit base which didn’t go to waste though. Oh no, my husband, who I said the other day, wasn’t into baking . Well today, he used the left over biscuit mix and some of the creamy filling, which I left for him to make a smaller cheesecake for my daughter who doesn’t like creme eggs. This means that the whole family can enjoy some cheesecake tonight – by the looks of things – as my husband asked me when I came home if the cheesecakes would be ready yet??ย  So there you go – my husband was watching me when I made the first cheesecake this morning as he went and made another one all by himself. Alright it is a no bake cheesecake recipe and not a lot can go wrong but he still managed to make it.
