Make the chestnut cheesecake crust:
1. Crush the biscuits and peanuts.
2. Put the peanuts in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
3. Melt the butter in a saucepan.
4. In the chopper add the crumbs, crushed roasted peanuts, coffee, cocoa, add the melted butter, and mix until the composition is homogeneous,
5. Place the composition thus obtained in a 26 cm springform pan, press, and place in the freezer until the filling is ready.
Make the chestnuts, dark chocolate, and coffee filling:
6. The gelatin is left to hydrate in 80 ml of water for 10 minutes.
7. In a bowl, mix the coffee with 2 tablespoons of the whipped cream until smooth. Melt the chocolate on the bain-marie.
8. In a bowl add the whipping cream and Stevia sweetener and mix for 3 minutes until peaks form.
9. Add the cream cheese and hydrated gelatin and mix for 1 minute until it reaches a creamy consistency, finally add salt, lemon juice, and rum essence.
10. Divide the cream evenly into 3 bowls
- In the 1st bowl (50% of the composition) add the chestnut puree and mix lightly with a wooden spoon/spatula until completely incorporated
- In the 2nd bowl add the melted chocolate and incorporate
- In the 3rd bowl add the whipped cream and coffee mix in the composition and incorporate with a spatula until homogenization.
11. Pour half of the cream (the one with the chestnut puree) over the biscuit base and level with a spatula, cover the composition with cling film and put it in the freezer for an hour to harden the cream.
12. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer, pour the dark chocolate composition over the chestnut cream, and level with a spatula, cover the composition with cling film, and put in the freezer for an hour to harden the cream.
13. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer, pour the whipped cream and coffee composition over the dark chocolate cream, and level with a spatula, cover the composition with cling film, and put in the freezer for at least 6 hours over the night to harden the cake.
Make the chocolate basket:
14. Inflate a water balloon and tie it tightly at the end, then place it in a round cup
15. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, remove it from the heat, then let it cool.
16. Build a paper cone, pour the chocolate into it, cut it at the thin end and then start to pip the chocolate in the form of intertwining circles.
17. Refrigerate for 2 hours to harden. After the chocolate has hardened, take it out of the fridge, gently push the balloon to the end to deflate, and Voila: you have a wonderful chocolate basket, very easy to make and which adds elegance to any cake.
Make the chocolate mirror glaze:
18. The gelatin is left to hydrate in 50 ml of water for 5 minutes.
19. Put in a saucepan over a bain-marie, water, chocolate broken into pieces, heavy cream, vegan condensed milk, and almond extract, stirring constantly until it starts to boil. Remove from the heat, add gelatin, stir for a few more seconds.
20. Pass the obtained composition through a sieve so that no impurities remain, thus obtaining a fine cream, after which it is left to cool.
21. Divide the glaze into 2 parts as follows:
- The dark chocolate is divided in 2: ½ is left as such, in the other ½ add black food coloring
- The white chocolate is divided into 4 equal parts in which add white, yellow, red, and green food coloring and mix the composition of each bowl until completely incorporated.
22. Pour the chocolate into a larger container/bowl as follows: first the yellow glaze, then the red color glaze, white, green, black, and brown glaze.
23. Cover the glaze with a cling film to avoid creating condensation. Let it cool to 32-35 degrees after which we can pour it over the cheesecake. If you do not have a thermometer, you can take it with a spoon from the composition, and when it no longer flows like water, but as heavy cream, it is a sign that it has already reached the optimum temperature.
24. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer, release it from the springform, place it on a container/bowl narrower than the cake and start pouring the glaze in a circular motion from the center to the edges,
25. Allow the excess to drain and refrigerate for another 1 hour.
Note: I forgot to add one more chocolate (100 g) MY BAD ☹ although I had it, and unfortunately the icing did not come out properly, in the sense that it came out “waterier” and the colors intertwined ☹ instead of remaining distinct as you can see in the pictures above, Soo it’s ruined ☹ but it’s a lesson learned.
