Pink Cheesecake with Popcorn Crust
Popcorn Recipe Ingredients:
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
6 Tbsp butter, melted
1 packet cream cheese (225g), softened
1 cup mascarpone cheese
3 Tbsp srawberry preserves, for the filling
3 tsp strawberry preserves, to serve
handful crushed roasted hazelnuts, to serve
Popcorn Recipe Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
To make the popcorn crust, place popcorn a food processor until finely ground. In a medium bowl, mix ground popcorn, 1/4 cup sugar, sea salt and butter until completely combined.
Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of a spring-form pan. Transfer to the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely.
While cooling, mix softened cream cheese, mascarpone and strawberry preserves in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread evenly over the popcorn crust in the tin and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until ready to serve.
To serve, remove the cheesecake and top the cake with more strawberry preserves, crushed nuts, and popcorn to garnish.
