Nutella Cheesecake

A few years back I was discussing baking with my cousin when she told me about recipe that she had found. Its a recipe for a peanut butter cheesecake but she had discovered that it tasted delicious when you used Nutella instead of the peanut butter. Since then I have used this recipe a lot.

Nutella Cheesecake

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs or oreo crumbs

3/4 cup Butter

3 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese

3/4 cup Nutella

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons All purpose flour

1 teaspoon Vanilla

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup Cream (half and half)

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F

Step 1: The Crust

Melt the butter and add to the chosen crumbs until combined. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9″ springform pan (I used 4 miniature 3-4″ springform pans and had lots leftover to use in just muffin liners)

Step 2: The Filling

Soften the room temperature Cream cheese in a mixer, add sugar

Step 3

Next add the Nutella and the Vanilla

Step 4

Add the flour. Scrape down the bowl

Step 5

Add the eggs all at once. Make sure you scrape down the bowl after adding the eggs

Step 6

Add the cream and once it is combined add the chocolate chips

Step 7

Pour the filling into the pan. Place pan in a tub of  hot water

Step 8

Bake in the tub of water for 45 min – 1 1/2 hours

When you take out the cheesecakes allow to cool in the tub of water

Chill and serve this decadent masterpiece to all your friends!
