No Bake Nutella Cookie Crust Double Chocolate Cheesecake
You can’t always make people happy all of the time! So when my youngest daughter, the Nutella Queen insisted that I hadn’t made anything Nutella related in a while, I kind of had to agree.
But what? You can only Stuff it in so many things. My mind was hard at work. And since we were having friends over for dinner and they are my perfect guinea pigs, I thought they would be happy to try my new creation!
Double Chocolate Cheesecake
They absolutely love cheesecake. One of our friends is an amazing cook who was also telling me that he has no luck with making desserts. Once he made a cheesecake with 12 eggs! What?
That wasn’t a cheesecake it was a frittata! Haha, he said it weighed a ton.
No need to fret, I have no eggs in this No Bake Nutella Cookie Crust Double Chocolate Cheesecake . But I do have an amazing crust, I decided that instead of using the usual cookie and butter crust or Oreo cookie crust, which, ok don’t hate me, is not my favourite, I would switch it up a bit.
And so I made a cookie crumb Nutella crust. Worked like a charm. All you have to do is place some Nutella in a bowl, place it over a pot with some water (make sure the water does not touch the plate).
Let the water boil on low and this will thin it up within 10 minutes. Mix them together and there you have a crust that you’ll love! They were made for each other.
I thought a nice white creamy cheesecake would be a perfect companion with a semi sweet chocolate topping, and I was right.
The first time I made these bars back in July 2015 my daughter and friends in Italy loved them, and since I have re made these No Bake Nutella Cookie Crust Double Chocolate Cheesecake Bars a few times in the last week I can honestly say they were an even bigger hit! Enjoy!
