The cake can be made with few ingredients, including cookie crumbs, butter, cream cheese, vanilla extract, condensed milk, and Cadbury Caramilk chocolate.
One online recipe also uses a Caramilk-flavored cream cheese, although this product is not available at select Coles and Woolworths grocery stores.
Some home bakers opted to make cheesecake slices instead of a classic round dessert and decorated the top with other chocolate.

A woman posted to the popular Mums Who Cook and Bake Facebook group, revealing the simple recipe she followed to make the cake.
Melissa admitted that she had never made a cheesecake before, but was very happy with the end result and said it tasted ‘so good’.
She also added a ‘dulce de leche’ caramel on top of the cake, a Latin American delicacy made with sweetened milk and can be purchased from Woolworths for $ 6.

The recipe itself consists of combining cookie crumbs and butter and putting the mixture firmly in a baking tin.
Then combine the remaining ingredients with an electric mixer and pour the crumbs into the tin.
Put the cake in the refrigerator for three hours or until cooked, decorate as desired and serve.
