Mini Nutella cheeseecakes
The no-bake treats continue .....
I can't remember when did I first try Nutella .
I bet most of you have already tried eating it , unknowlingly !
Heck , I didn't even know that the gooey chocolate paste part of Ferrero Rocher was Nutella and made by the same company until last year pfffftttt !
Since I always forget to buy Nutella until few months ago , that was the first time that I've tried it straight from the bottle !
How pathetic is that ?!
I've first seen this recipe from Mich and couldn't contain my delight lol
I don't have hazelnuts but somebody here got loads of Rocher so I used some of those instead .
I've made half of the recipe and actually divided the crust to about 2 dozen small tins and small muffin liners but the mixture was not that much and just filled up 9 containers . If you're planning on donating some of these easy and decadent treats , make the full recipe !
Recipe first seen @ Mich of Eat a Piece of Cake . Please check original recipe @ Nigella
Makes nine 2 1/2 x 1 1/2-inch minis
125 grams digestive biscuits
40 grams softened butter
250 grams cream cheese , at room temperature
200 grams Nutella , at room temperature
6 pieces Ferrero Rocher , coarsely chopped plus more for topping
30 grams icing sugar , sifted
* Crush digestive biscuits and 1 Rocher until fine , add in butter and mix well then add in a generous teaspoon of Nutella . mix until well incorporated . Press crumbs into tins and freeze .
* Whisk cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth then add in the remaining Nutella and the chopped Rocher to the mixture and continue whisking until well combined .
* Divide mixture into tins and chill overnight .
* Serve straight from the fridge .
Note : I divided the crumbs , about 1/2 tablespoon , into several tins and liners though I just used only 9 of those . If you want a thicker crust , add about 1 1/2 tablespoon in each tin .
