Jelly Bean Mini Cheesecakes for National Jelly Bean day 22nd April




Today is national Jelly Bean day and I have created this delicious mini cheese cakes to celebrate the day.

Ingredients:

1 250 g tub light mascarpone cheese 
3 tablespoons icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
A handful of assorted Jelly beans
125 g digestive biscuits
50 g butter
3 tablespoons mango compote
2 strawberries for garnish (optional)


Method:

1. Crush the biscuits .
2. Melt the butter and add it to the biscuits, mix together to form a sand like texture.
3. Place four ring moulds (without the base) on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
4. Divide the biscuit mixture into the four rings and press it smooth and pack it into the rings.
5. Place the tray in the fridge to chill and set the biscuit base.
6. In a bowl add the mascarpone, icing sugar and vanilla and whip it together.
7. Fill a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle with the mascarpone mixture.
8. Run a sharp knife around the edge of the ring to release the biscuit base and gently lift off the metal ring.
9. Place the biscuit bases on to serving tray and spoon over them some mango compote.
10. Pipe over the compote the mascarpone mixture.
11. Scatter some jelly Belly beans on top of the mascarpone and chill the cheese cakes before serving.











12. If you have strawberries slice them thinly and add as garnish together with the Jelly Beans
