Method

STEP 1

Lightly grease and line the base and side of a 22cm (base measurement) springform pan.

Use an electric mixer to beat the cream in a bowl until stiff peaks form.

Place the cream cheese and vanilla in a separate bowl. Use a clean electric mixer to beat for 2 mins or until smooth. Add the icing sugar. Beat for a further 2 mins or until smooth. Add the hazelnut spread and melted chocolate. Beat until combined. Fold in the whipped cream. Spoon over the biscuit base in the pan. Place in the fridge for 30 mins.

Place extra chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Place extra cream in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Carefully pour cream over chocolate in the bowl. Set aside for 2 mins to stand. Stir until chocolate melts and mixture is well combined. Cool slightly.

Pour the chocolate mixture evenly over the cheesecake. Sprinkle with hazelnuts. Place in the fridge for 8 hours or overnight to set.
