Jelly tip is all the rage at the moment. With the release of the Whitakers chocolate bar and also griffins releasing Jelly tip biscuits. So to take to a recent house warming I couldn’t help but I make my own mash up and make a Jelly Tip cheesecake!
Now if you think it sounds too good to be true, well it tasted pretty damn good! With a layer of vanilla biscuit crumbs, topped with vanilla cheesecake mix – you could use any filling you like. (I find my top secret white chocolate cheesecake filling works for every occasion) then with a layer of raspberry jelly topping the whole thing in chocolate ganache!
I made it over a couple of nights as I set the jelly in a pot and then transferred it onto the cheesecake. Not the best idea as the jelly cracked when I moved it and so when I poured the ganache over the top it went in the cracks so the surface was a bit rough. And the jelly sweated a little with the ganache and there was a bit of gooey red liquid hanging about.
Aside from the presentation lacking somewhat it had rave reviews from everyone who tasted it. The poor gluten intolerant people had to say no, but you could make it with an almond base instead. Unfortunately even tho I am lactose intolerant I still haven’t come up with a dairy free cheesecake alternative. Nuts are just way too expensive!
All in all this was a great first attempt and was a winner with the crowd. Next time I would see if there was an easier way to set the jelly! I have been asked for the recipe. But at the moment I think I will be keeping this to myself! Unless Tip Top want to come on board!
Here is a picture! I really should work on taking more pictures of the things I make. My phones just not cut out for it, but you get the idea.
