Today I’m sharing my Gluten Free Chocolate Ripple Cheesecake that I made for Valentines Day. I’ve shared a few crazy cheesecake recipes in the past so thought I’d try for a more traditional option and I think I have succeeded.
This cheesecake is sooo good. A delicious and super easy cheesecake thats not too rich and packed with my own Gluten Free version of the Arnott’s Choc Ripple Biscuits. For the Aussies out there, you will know what Arnott’s biscuits are and just how many desserts call for Arnott’s biscuits. So I was stoked when I managed to create a recipe that was quite similar. If you’re not familiar with this type of biscuit, it’s a plain chocolate biscuit that is used as a staple in many desserts.
I originally posted my gluten free version of the Choc Ripple biscuits as part of a dessert from my childhood called peppermint log. I don’t think I really advertised just how similar the biscuits are to the normal gluten containing kind and I’ve never posted the recipe separately. So you might want to print this recipe for safe keeping!
Sunday I celebrated my birthday with my two loves and this incredible Gluten Free Nutella Cheesecake! We ate cake at a park in the most glorious sunshine and Lyla sang the “hooray” part of the happy birthday song.
The cheesecake has a smooth creamy texture, with a gluten free oreo style biscuit base, nutella filling and ganache. I’m salivating just thinking about it. Lucky for me my husband made it. Jesse used Simply Wise Gluten Free Choc’o Biscuits (think Gluten Free Oreo’s) for the biscuit base that’s we picked up from the Gluten Free Food Show in Melbourne. He also made homemade honeycomb for decoration on the top of the cheesecake. I’ll be sure to link to the honeycomb recipe soon.
Today I’m sharing this Gluten Free White Chocolate Berry Cheesecake Slice. Last week I shared the delicious Dark Chocolate and Pistachio Hedgehog slice recipe which turned out to be a hit with all those who tried it! I even debated making it again on the weekend, but wanted to make (and taste) a lighter slice containing fruit, given we are in the midst of summer. So I decided on this White Chocolate Berry Cheesecake slice.
It was very quick and easy to make and perfect to take to my friend’s birthday party. My husband was also particularly happy with the choice, given cheesecake is one of his favourites.
Feeling refreshed after my holiday to New Zealand I was back in the kitchen on the weekend to bake this Gluten Free Rolo No Bake Cheesecake for Jesse’s birthday!
As always I’d asked Jesse to think about what type of cake he wanted and he decided on a cheesecake but wasn’t specific about flavour. After a search through my Pinterest account, I sent a selection for him to choose from, and this year he chose a Rolo No Bake Cheesecake.
Nestle chocolate Rolo’s aren’t easy to find in Australia, so I used the Rolo chocolate you buy in a block and left the individual Rolo chocolates I managed to find for decoration only. The end result was amazing and we may have eaten it three nights in a row…
Thanks to Jane’s Patisserie for the original recipe which I then modified to be gluten free with homemade caramel and Rolo chocolate in a block. Feel free to head over to my Instagram account if you want to see a few pics from our holiday or a recap of the last 3 birthday cakes I made Jesse.
P.S. It’s starting to get to the busy end of the year with multiple birthdays, catch ups with friends, the racing carnival and christmas parties coming up. This means there is a lot of baking ahead for me and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
