This Nutella Cheesecake is rich, creamy, with a chocolate crust, and Nutella swirls baked into the batter.
To make the crust for the cheesecake, I used chocolate graham cracker bears. They are easier to find around the stores around me than chocolate graham crackers. Just mix the crumbs with butter.
Press the crust on the bottom of the cheesecake pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes in the pre-heated oven. Let the crust cool down.
To make the cheesecake batter, beat the cream cheese. Add the sugar and mix to combine. Follow with the sour cream. Next, add the Nutella to the bowl and mix. Add the melted and cooled chocolate. Add the eggs, the salt and the pure vanilla extract.
Pour 1/3 of the batter on the bottom of the tin. Add dollops of Nutella on top of the batter, use a spoon or a knife to swirl it in. Top with some more batter, followed by more Nutella. Finish with the remaining batter and remaining Nutella.
Form a water bath to bake the cheesecake. Wrap the bottom of the cheesecake with foil and place the cheesecake pan inside a larger roasting pan.
To decorate the cheesecake, spread more Nutella on top. You can pipe whipping cream on top also and decorate with cookies or with Ferrero Rocher candies.
This Nutella Cheesecake tastes amazing, and it has a super rich and creamy texture.
