Kids in the Kitchen - Mini Strawberry Milkshake Cheesecakes

Welcome to this week's Kids in the Kitchen, where we invite you to share the recipes you've made with your children.

Last week we had two more recipes from Tickle Fingers, an incredibly delicious and oh so easy to make Plum Fool and a fantastic way to get your kids to eat oily fish with a colourful Sardine Couscous Salad.

Everyone who joins in gets linked up on our Pinterest Board and I will also tweet your posts as well as mentioning you here on my blog the following week. If you don't know what to cook, then check out our Pinterest Board for inspiration.

Mini Strawberry Milkshake Cheesecakes.

This week we were sent some lovely flavoured icing sugars from Sugar and Crumbs.
One of the packs was flavoured Strawberry Milkshake so we decided to make mini cheesecakes.

I had some little glass jars to make them in, they were recycled from (rather expensive) deserts brought from the supermarket. I couldn't bear to throw them away (and I wanted to get my money's worth) You could used ramekins or little glasses.

Ingredients:


Base:
100g Chocolate cream biscuits, (Oreo's would be a nice alternative)

Cheesecake:
250g cream cheese
50g Sugar and Crumbs Strawberry Milkshake Icing Sugar
100ml double cream

Topping:
100g white chocolate
100ml cream
a few drops of pink food colouring

The ingredients should make six mini cheesecakes. I made seven so I stretched it a little but it only showed when it came to the chocolate topping. My aim was to completely cover the top, but I ended up with just enough for a disc of chocolate on each cheesecake.

Method:

We decided we wanted the base to be crumbly rather than set as in a regular cheesecake.

Put the biscuits in a bag and bash them with a rolling pin until crushed.
Divide them between the serving dishes.



To make the cheesecake layer;

Add the icing sugar to the cream cheese and mix thouroughly.
Whisk the cream until stiff and then fold into the cheese mixture
divide between the serving dishes
Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours until set






































To make the chocolate layer;

Heat the cream gently in a pan
When warm add the chocolate and food colouring and stir until completely mixed
Divide between the serving dishes.








































The mini cheesecakes where a big hit. We loved the way the flavoured icing sugar added that extra flavour to the cheesecake, it was even a hit with the Little Man who doesn't normally eat cheesecake but loves strawberry milkshake.



Boo loved the pretty pink packaging of the icing sugar and I like that it was easily resealable. We only used a small amount for this recipe but I'm sure I'll be able to use it again. I'm often adding flavours to my butter cream so it will be nice to have an icing sugar to hand that is already flavoured.



So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
