I’m terrible at throwing things away that I think I may need in the future. I always keep things ‘just in case’ and this became quite apparent when I was putting my cake tins away and found, stashed at the back, glass pots from Gü desserts that I had kept and never used.

“I’m going to make mini cheesecakes!’ I exclaimed, to myself, in the kitchen one afternoon. I set to work and created these no bake beauties based on two of my favourite dessert flavours. Mint Aero cheesecakes with a Bourbon biscuit base and a minty cream cheese filling.

This recipe can make one big cheesecake or 8 mini ones. The choice is yours! Also, a variation on this recipe would be to use the Cadbury Philadelphia in the filling instead to make it a mint chocolate cheesecake. I plan to do that very soon!


For my individual cheesecakes, I’m using these cute glass jars leftover from having a tasty Gu pudding!


Firstly, crumble your Bourbon biscuits.


Then pour in your melted butter and mix thoroughly.


Spoon mixture into the base of your pot/tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. Chill for half an hour.


When your base is chilled, make your filling by whisking cream cheese until it is soft.


Then, mix in the icing sugar.


Finally pour in the cream and whisk until the mixture is thick.


Like so!


Then, add in a teaspoon of mint flavouring and a small amount of green food colouring. (I’m using Sugarflair Party Green.)


Whisk again and you will have a beautiful minty green and minty flavoured cream cheese filling.


Chop up your Mint Aeros using a sharp knife.


Pour half of your chopped Aeros into your cream cheese mixture and keep the other half aside. Mix well.


Spoon mixture to the top of your pot/tin.


Top with chopped Mint Aeros. Leave to set in the fridge for a few hours or preferably, overnight.
