Passionfruit and Chokito Cheesecake with a Passiona Glaze

Watched “Grease”, “Jules et Jim”, and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” last night. Which made me immeasurably fond for that decade of transgression in Australia, the seventies. I was just a wee innocent paisley shirted country lad, so my favourite weaknesses were just Passiona and Chokito. I still enjoy Passiona and it is the only non-alcoholic drink that brings me any any great joy. It was time to revisit the Mars Bar Cheesecake and move on with a bit of experimentation.

Underbelly of Eisenhower

300gm of chocolate coated digestive biscuits – reduced to crumbs and mixed in with 125gm of melted butter. Spread on the base of a springform tin and put in the refrigerator.

Menage A Trois

375gm of cream cheese, 1/3 cup of caster sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla essence beaten until smooth and then 1/4 cup of passionfruit pulp mixed in.

300ml pure cream beaten until soft peaks form.

All mixed together with 3 finely chopped Chokito bars and 3tsp of gelatine in 1/4 cup of warm water

Poured onto base and smoothed over.


1/3 cup of Passiona, a tbs of caster sugar and 2tbs of passionfruit pulp. Brought to a boil in a saucepan, simmered until thickened a little, and then brushed on top of the cheesecake.

Put in the refrigerator until firm.

Good? Oh yes.

    OK, now that one’s a little scary. Everyone knows that Passiona has that stuff that turns your insides orange. I believe it was also linked to particularly virulent playground outbreaks of girl germs.
    Also, you have been posting comments at Quiggin’s as ‘Anthony’ instead of ‘anthony’. I own the copyright to ‘Anthony’ for the Asia-Pacific region and my lawyers will be sending you instructions to cease and desist.
    I was going to offer to start posting as ‘bland Anthony’ (as opposed to ‘spicy Anthony’), but actually I don’t think that would be fair as I believe I make more use of spices in my cooking than you. I suspect I have travelled more in Indonesia and Thailand whereas you seem more of a Japanese orientation. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
    Anyway, with any luck we can settle this out of court.
    Yours etc

    Nah that’s lies made up by those Pasito bastards.
    Apologies, I’m locked in as You over at Quiggin, your name is forever associated (no pun intended) with rectal probing. I guess it’s yet another drink I owe you now. We may have to come up with a more permanent solution but then again think of the whippy baffling mystique. I thought Anthony G but that made me think of Kenny G and that’s not where I want to be.
    It is also the great mystery of this blog that it has very little to do with spices or anything really, it is a vessel in which to place meaning. All I can hope for is a bit of traffic from people looking for (over here googlebots) nude pictures of Geri Halliwell.

    Nude pictures of Geri Halliwell? What is this, more nostalgia?
    Her grandkids have grandkids now.
    More to the point… hell, I’ll just send you an email.

    underbelly of eisenhower: dwight was white

    your cheesecake was so good it drooled all over itself.

    i don’t understand this antipodean thing of crushing up biscuits and calling it cake.

    It’s a self basting cake.
    Crushed biscuits – we’re a poor country, right now I’m blogging a Underwood typewriter with a cord running to my Rank Arena television.

    Hi Anthony,

    What’s a chokito bar? I don’t think we have them here at all. The cheesecake looks wonderful though.

    Ugly log of a thing, rice crackles, chocolate, nougaty interior – not sure what would be the US equiv but I’d like to know.

  8. Santos’s avatar

    don’t think there is a us equiv of a chokito. the closest would be a something that used to be called $100,000 bar (the one hundred thousand dollar bar, properly) but i think it’s now called hundred grand…? only diff is that it’s gooish caramel, not nougat.

  9. Anthony’s avatar

    Nope I’m worng it is caramelly not nougaty. $100,000 bar – land of opportunity. We like simple things like “chok” “eat” “oh” (“oh” as in Robbo, Johnno etc.)

  10. leisel’s avatar

    nougat? caramel? The stuff in the middle is fudge you muppets.

  11. Anthony’s avatar
