Strawberry Jelly Hearts Cheesecake

When my colleague resigned last year, she had bought some jelly cheesecake for us. It was really yummy. She had ordered the cheesecake from online... So one of my colleague happened to came across this Jelly Hearts Cheesecake on the Sunday Straits Time. She said these cheesecakes looked very delicious, and I should try making them. And only it came across my mind that these were the ones I had eaten then.

These jelly cheesecakes were indeed a great treat for all. We all loved it very much as they were very refreshing.

Here are the cheesecake, strawberries were placed into the chilled cheese batter.
The jelly was poured over the cheese batter after chilling in the fridge for one night.
There we have, all chilled and ready to be photographed, and tested of course!!!
This jelly as recommended was Tortally, strawberry flavor. Very wobbly & yummy! The girls loved these jellies very much:-D
This cheesecake is definitely a keeper for those of you who loves cheesecake.
And here, the testers, including myself... what do you think?
Simply awesome, yummmmmmyyyyy......!!!!

Ingredients:
170g digestive biscuits, crushed
85g melted butter
250g cream cheese (room temp)
250g condensed milk
juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp gelatin
50ml hot water
1 punnet of strawberries
1 box of 90g Tortally Strawberry Flavoured jelly crystals

Method:
1. Crush biscuits till fine crumbs. Add melted butter and mix until well combined. Put the biscuit mixture in a 8" springform pan. Chill for at least 1hr.
2. Cream the cheese until smooth. Add in condensed milk & lemon juice, continue to mix until well combined. Add in the gelatin mixture(dissolve gelatin with hot water), continue to cream for 5 mins until well combined. Pour ready cream mixture into the pan, & chill for a while.
3. Place the cut strawberries, decorate as desired, into the cream cheese mixture. Gently pressed them into the mixture, so that the strawberries do not glide. Leave to set in the fridge overnight.
4. Prepare the jelly mixture as indicated on the box. Once cooled, pour the jelly solution to the cheesecake and put in back in the fridge to set.

  6. Hi!

    Just wanted to ask, for step 4 and 5, so do I leave the cheesecake to set overnight first, then prepare the jelly mixture the next day?

    Or should I prepare the jelly mixture, pour on top of the cheesecake, then put it all into the fridge to set overnight?

    Thanks! :)

    1. Hi MK, it is alright, as long as your cheese had set, you can prepare the jelly. The recipe stated is originated from the original recipe. :)
