Chocolate cheesecake balls ingredients

  • 250g chocolate ripple biscuits
  • 250g block cream cheese – softened
  • 300g milk chocolate
  • 6 mint leaf lollies
  • 24 red smarties


  • Cut the mint leaf lollies in half and then in half again (4 pieces) and set aside until needed.
  • Place the chocolate ripple biscuits into a food processor and blitz until they are crushed.
  • Add the softened cream cheese and mix until combined. Place the mixture into the freezer for approximately 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Use a dessert spoon to scoop up the cheesecake mixture before rolling it into balls. Place the cheesecake balls onto a tray covered with baking paper and continue until you have used all of the mixture.
  • Place the cheesecake balls back into the freezer for 30 minutes to firm.
  • When the cheesecake balls are almost ready to come out of the freezer, break the milk chocolate into squares and then place it into a microwave safe container. Cook for 30-second spurts until it has just melted.
  • Place a skewer in the base of a cheesecake ball and dip it into the melted chocolate. Use a fork to help you cover the cheesecake ball with chocolate before placing the covered cheesecake ball back onto the tray with the baking paper.
  • While the chocolate is still soft, place one red smartie on top of the cheesecake ball and place two of the mint leaf pieces next to it to create a holly leaf. Repeat until all of the cheesecake balls have been covered in chocolate and decorated.


  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge until needed.
