Work catering #23: Nutella + Cream Cheese = HEAVENLY NUTELLA CHEESECAKE!

Last week I was asked to cater for two sessions (yay! so happy they asked me ^_^) so did a lot of baking! One was for a morning tea so I made Orange and Poppy Seed cake and Blackforest cheesecake, both recipes that I have tried before.

Fanned out~~~

So now to the next exciting recipe!!! As promised, it is another Nutella recipe =D Remember last week how I made Apple crumble cheesecake and Nutella cookies? Well a colleague at work misheard and thought I made Nutella cheesecake! XD and I thought what a great idea~ so after some blog research I found this recipe for NUTELLA CHEESECAKE! It's super easy (as the original recipe title stated xP)
Nutella Cheesecake
Recipe adapted from ChocolateSuze
250g Nice biscuits
100g butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 x 250g cream cheese
100g icing sugar
1/2 cup thickened cream
400g Nutella

1. Process/Crush biscuits until fine. Add melted butter and combine. Press into base of lined baking tray (20 x 30cm) and chill in fridge for ~ 30 minutes.
2. Beat cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla essence with electric mixer until smooth mixture formed. 
3. Beat in Nutella until smooth. Beat in cream until mixture looks shiny and mousse-like.
4. Dollop mixture onto biscuit base and smooth the surface. Place in fridge for a couple of hours or best overnight.

As there was no gelatin added I thought they might turn to mush but they actually held their shape after being in the fridge overnight. It was quite rich so you can't eat too much... but oh so good ;p....

Next up is something a little fun! Colour M&M cookies ^_^
