Makes 6 mini cheesecakes
For the Flapjack base:
170g Unsalted Butter
85g Golden Syrup
100g Soft Dark Brown Sugar
70g Peanut Butter Popcorn
For the Baked Cheesecake Layer:
450g Cream Cheese
60g Golden Caster Sugar
60g Sour Cream
15g Plain Flour
A pinch of Salt
100g Carnation Caramel
For the Biscuit Topper:
62g Plain Flour
35g Caster Sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract
75g Plain Flour
Preheat the oven to 170˚C fan. Lightly grease 6 individual moulds and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter, golden syrup and sugar. Once melted, take off the heat and add the oats and popcorn. Beat to combine. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar and sour cream. Beat in the eggs, flour and salt until combined.
Place your prepared moulds onto a baking tray. Spoon your cooled flapjack mixture into the base of the moulds and press down with the back of a spoon. Top with the cheesecake mixture. Repeat this step until you have 6 individual cheesecakes.
Gently tap the tray onto your workspace to remove any air bubbles.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before removing from their moulds.
To make the biscuit topper, cream together the butter and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Beat in the vanilla and fold in the flour. Turn out onto a lightly floured worktop and roll until a couple of cm thick.
Using a cookie cutter, stamp out shapes until all of the dough has been used. Bake in the oven at 160˚ for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
Decorate as desired.
To assemble, drizzle a spoonful of caramel over the top of your baked cheesecakes. Stick your biscuit squirrel on top of the caramel.
