Marzipan mini cheesecakes

I am very proud of this recipe I created. Very creamy marzipan flavoured cheesecakes baked on the digestives biscuits crumbs mixed with nutella. My family got crazy about them, they really loved them. Those cheesecakes are also very easy to make. 
From the amount of ingredients listed below I received 18 cheesecakes. As you can see there is plenty to share.
Before start preheat the oven to 180C.

Ingredients for base:
  • 168g digestives biscuits
  • 90g nutella
 Place nutella and biscuits in the blender and whisk until the crumbly mixture is evenly coated with nutella.

Line muffin tin with paper cases and divide this crumbly mixture evenly among all of them. Smooth the surface with the back of the spoon. Set aside.

Ingredients for cheesecake:
  •  750g cream cheese
  • 175g marzipan + 100g for decoration
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp potato flour
  • 1 tsp almond essence
  • 3 eggs
Grate the marzipan and put it into an electric mixer bowl. Add the cream cheese, sugar, flour, almond essence and eggs. Beat this mixture very short, only to let all ingredients combine.

Spoon this mixture on top of prepared earlier bases. Fill each paper case up to top, leave 1-2 milimiters free space so when baked and dusted with coca powder the cocoa powder will stay in its place. 

Bake for 20 minutes. Then remove form the oven leave in the baking tin for a few minutes. Later transfer to the tray and put into fridge to cool them down completely.

In a meantime roll the remaining  marzipan and cut nice shapes for decoration.

When cheesecakes are cooled down dust the with cocoa powder or icing sugar and place marzipan decorations on top of each cheesecakes. Enjoy !
