I have been on a Nutella hiatus lately because I have been too busy baking cookie instead. Today I decided to make something using Nutella because the jars were pretty much taking up too much space in the pantry. I decided to make Nutella cheesecake.
For this recipe, I used my friend’s base cheesecake recipe and I simply added 2/3 cup of Nutella. Too easy right?
Putting the Nutella cheesecake ingredients into the glass proved to be challenging, it was really hard to get the ingredients to sit neatly into the jar. In the end I just gave up and just did the best I could. I let the Nutella cheesecake set in the fridge overnight. I put the left over Nutella cheesecake mixture in a container and put it in the fridge.
The next morning I took the Nutella cheesecake out of the fridge, I ended up whipping up some cream and crushing some hazelnuts to put on top of the Nutella cheesecake. The Nutella cheesecake actually looked quite nice in the glass.
The Nutella cheesecake tasted really nice, the Nutella cheesecake was so creamy and hazelnutty. I was so pleased that I decided to only use 2/3 cup of Nutella, because the Nutella cheesecake did not taste so sweet.
I am really liking this idea of placing desserts into glasses, I think I might decide to make these for my baby’s first birthday party.
Please refer to my previous cheesecake post for the base recipe of the cheesecake.
