I love dessert so much. When I’m out for a meal I will look at the dessert menu first. There’s something so comforting about dessert. I also love it when they are easy to make. Like this one.
I know that everybody obsesses over Nutella and who doesn’t like cheesecake so when I saw this in Nigelissama I had to make it. I know I’ll have some very happy friends and family.
Here’s the recipe:
Adapted from Nigelissama
250g digestive biscuits
75g soft unsalted butter, melted
1 400g jar Nutella (at room temperature)
100g chopped hazelnuts
500g soft cream cheese (at room temperature)
60g icing sugar (sifted)
First of all toast your hazelnuts. I heated mine in a pan on the hob for a couple of minutes.
Melt your butter over a low heat. Smash your biscuits into tiny crumbs and stir into the melted butter add 25g of the toasted hazelnuts.
Press the mixture into a lined spring form tin. And chill in the fridge while you prepare the topping.
For the topping, place the cream cheese and icing sugar into a bowl and beat until combined. Then add the Nutella. Stir until fully combined or you could leave it swirled. That looks pretty too.
Take the biscuit base out of the fridge and top with the Nutella mixture. Smooth down and then sprinkle over the rest of the hazelnuts.
Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve cold from the fridge.
