    Instructions

    Crust: 

    1. Begin by adding your graham crackers into a food processor. Blitz until finely crumbed.
    2. Add the melted butter and pulse to help coat the crumbs in the butter.
    3. Pour out into a springform pan and use the back of a tablespoon or the bottom of a glass to help spread and firmly press the wet crumb mixture into the sides and bottom of the tart tin.
    4. Chill for 20 min. 

    Cheesecake: 

    1. Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix at low speed, to begin with, slowly making your way up to high speed. 
    2. Pour into the springform pan and chill for 2 hours, or overnight, to set.
    3. Top with candy orange halves in a spiral pattern so there is one orange slice per slice of cheesecake. 

    Mountain Dew Glaze: 

    1. To prepare the mountain dew glaze, add the powdered gelatin to a small mixing bowl and about 1/4 cup of mountain dew into the bowl. Mix until well combined.
    2. Allow sitting for 5 min then microwave for 1 minute to melt. 
    3. Add the remaining mountain dew into a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 3 min or until very hot. This will help get rid of the fizz in the drink so that we end up with a nice smooth glaze. 
    4. Add the melted gelatin mixture into the hot mountain dew and use a whisk to combine until everything is melted. 
    5. Allow the mixture to cool but not set. About 15 minutes. 
    6. Pour the cooled mountain dew glaze onto the chilled cheesecake. 
    7. Allow setting in the fridge for 1 hour before slicing up the Mountain Dew Cheesecake to serve.
