Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 package (250 g) biscoff cookies
  • 1/4 cup (62 g) melted vegan butter
  • 4 8-ounce packages (32 oz) store bought or homemade vegan cream cheese
  • 1 cup (240 g) dairy free yogurt
  • 1 cups (240 mL) vegan heavy cream
  • 1 cup (200 g) sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups crushed vegan mini egg candies*
  • 1/2 batch vegan chocolate ganache

Instructions

  1. Prep: Line a 9″ springform baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Make the crust: In a food processor, blitz the biscoff cookies until they resemble a fine crumb. Then add in the melted vegan butter, and pulse again just until combined. Pour the crumbs into your prepared baking pan, and press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan to form one unified crust. Rinse out the food processor for the next step.
  3. Make the cheesecake batter: In a food processor, add in the remaining cheesecake ingredients (cream cheese, yogurt, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, vanilla bean paste, and sea salt), and blend until creamy.
  4. Crush the vegan mini egg candies: In a large bag, crush the vegan easter candies, then pour them into the cheesecake batter, and use a silicone spatula to fold into the batter to evenly distribute.
  5. Chill: Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the cheesecake into the freezer to set for 3-4 hours.
  6. When ready to serve: Remove the vegan cheesecake from the freezer. Top with the homemade chocolate ganache, and extra candies. Let the Easter egg cheesecake stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy! Slice and enjoy! Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
