Cheesecake jelly slice 1



View Profile

This delicious treat has to be one of the best slices out there! A classic cheesecake and jelly combination that wins over everyone who tries it – it’s a must try! This version uses chocolate biscuits for the base, but you can swap them out for plain biscuits if you prefer. Likewise for the jelly on top; we’ve used mango but you can pick your favourite flavour and run with it. It comes out perfect every time and is such a great treat to have when you have visitors or just want something special to brighten up your day! Enjoy!


  • 125g chocolate biscuits, processed to fine crumbs
  • 80g butter, melted, cooled
  • 375g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 200ml cream
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons powdered gelatine
  • 85g packet jelly crystals (whatever flavour you like)


1. Line base and sides of a 3.5cm deep, 16cm x 26cm (base) slab pan with baking paper. Combine biscuit crumbs and butter. Press into base of lined pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in cream. Place water into a small bowl. Sprinkle over gelatine. Stir until gelatine dissolves. Set aside to cool slightly. Beat gelatine into filling until combined.

3. Pour filling over base. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours or until set.

4. Meanwhile, make jelly, following packet directions. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Pour into a shallow dish. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until jelly starts to thicken (like consistency of thickened cream). Pour jelly over cheesecake. Refrigerate for a further 3 hours or until jelly is set. Cut into squares to serve.
