Easy No-Bake Mint Aero Cheesecake Recipe

Mint Aero Cheesecake. It probably either sounds like heaven, or something you’re definitely not interested in trying…well, hopefully we can change your mind if it’s the latter!

We love a cheesecake (you can see our Tablet Cheesecake here and Cranachan Cheesecake here) and decided to see what other favourite flavours we could incorporate into a similar recipe.

Realistically, this would work with almost any kind of chocolate, but we went with a Mint Aero Cheesecake Recipe since the peppermint and chocolate make what can sometimes seem like a heavy dessert seem just that little bit lighter and more refreshing. Chocolate and mint is such a classic combination, and we are here for it!

The best thing about this Mint Aero Cheesecake recipe is also that it’s a no bake cheesecake and super easy to make. It’s so good to get a dessert made in advance and just be able to put it out of the refrigerator whenever you’re ready for it. You can leave it undecorated, or go crazy and add more Mint Aero or even melted chocolate to the top, you decide.

For anyone who loves mint and chocolate, this is surely the perfect Mint Chocolate dessert!

How to make Mind Aero Cheesecake – Step by step method

Crush the biscuits by putting them in a bag and bashing with a rolling in or tin can, or blitzing them in a blender. You want a fine crumb.

Melt the butter and mix it with the crushed biscuits.

Tip the mixture into the bottom of the springform pan and press down evenly with the back of a large spoon.

Put in the fridge to chill.

Meanwhile, add the cream cheese to a large bowl with the sugar and peppermint essence and gently mix it together.

In a separate bowl, beat the cream until it thickens and forms soft peaks.

Crush the Mint Aero Bars using a bag and rolling pin. You want bigger chunks so we recommend this rather than blending.

Add the cream and the crushed chocolate bars to the cream cheese mixture and gently mix it all together until fully combined.

Layer it on top of your biscuit base. It’s easier to do this in two layers rather than tipping it all in so that you can avoid air bubbles. Smooth the top with the offset spatula and life then bang one or twice down on the bench top to get rid of any air bubbles.

Put in the fridge to set for a minimum of 4-6 hours or preferably overnight.

Once it’s set you can decorate however you like! We used Mint Aero Bubbles around the top of the cheesecake with more crushed in the middle, but you could also top with piped wiped cream and pieces of Mint Aero, drizzle melted chocolate over it, or whatever else you like!

Variations

Of course, you could make this with normal chocolate aero, or really any other chocolate bar you like! We’ll definitely be trying out some more variations and will throw in some Scottish sweet treats to see how we get on and we’ll share them if they work.

    • Hope it turned out well for you! We’re very partial to our tablet cheesecake of course, but the mint aero is delicious too!
