As my love of Nutella continues to grow and grow I was very happy to come across this recipe. It was ever so simple and easy to make it was soooooooo even better wohooo.

I actually didn’t choose this recipe! my mum did (from a long list), I made it for her birthday. This was part 1 of her birthday cakes, I also made an eggless tiramisu, that was part two.

This cheesecake was really delicious and very indulgent, it might be rich for some but I could handle it and anyway people can have a small slice if they can’t handle it. I’ve got to say I would defo make this cheesecake again it was really yuumy and of course the nutella helped so much! even thinking about it makes me tempted to make it again.

I added extra chocolate sauce and roasted chopped hazelnuts. I actually didn’t realise we had hazelnuts until after and it was needed in the cheesecake mixture oops! o well I added it on top and it gave a nice finish.

Press the mixture into the spring form pan and place in the fridge.
