Ingredients

  • 50g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 500g cream cheese, softened, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 200g chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 2 tbs instant coffee
  • 250g sour cream
  • 4 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • 400g dark chocolate, melted, cooled
  • 1 tbs boiling water
  • 1/4 cup (70g) chocolate hazelnut spread, extra
  • 300ml thickened cream, whisked to stiff peaks

Method

STEP 1 

Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease a 22cm (base measurement) springform pan and line with baking paper. Place the biscuits, butter and cocoa powder in a food processor and process until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Spoon into the prepared pan and use a flat-bottomed glass to press biscuit mixture over the base. Place on a baking tray and bake for 15 mins or until dry to the touch.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, place the cream cheese, sugar, hazelnut spread and half the coffee in a clean food processor and process until smooth. Add the sour cream, eggs and chocolate and pulse until combined.

STEP 3

Pour the cream cheese mixture over the biscuit base in the pan. Bake cheesecake for 11/4 hours or until just set. Turn oven off. Leave cheesecake in the oven with the door ajar for 1 hour to cool. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to chill.

STEP 4

Place the remaining coffee, boiling water and extra hazelnut spread in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until hazelnut spread melts and mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool.

STEP 5

Transfer cheesecake to a serving platter. Place the cream and coffee mixture in a large bowl and gently fold to marble. Spoon over the cheesecake to serve.
