Last week it was my sister in law's birthday and she had been eyeing out this cheesecake, so I decided that instead of a birthday cake, I would make her this instead.
It was a hit. I think it's the perfect combination of chocolate and hazelnuts and cream cheese. It's not overly rich and sweet which makes it even better, in my opinion.
Super easy, no bake cheesecake.
Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake
8 ½ oz of crushed corn flakes
2 ½ oz unsalted butter, melted
4 tbsps cocoa powder
7 oz hazelnut
1.1 lbs cream cheese
1 ½ cup + 4 tbsps cream (25% fat content)
3 oz sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
170g dark chocolate
8 Ferrero Rocher chocolates
Crush the cornflakes with melted butter and cocoa powder. Cover the bottom of a springform pan with the crushed corn flakes and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Toast the hazelnuts in the oven.
Blend the still warm hazelnuts to form a paste. Add the cream cheese, half of the cream, vanilla extract and sugar and beat until all ingredients are incorporated.
Pour it in the pan and spread with a spatula. Refrigerate until firm.
Melt the chocolate with the rest of the cream.
Cover the cheesecake with chocolate. Decorate with Ferrero Rocher chocolates let it cool for 30 minutes. Serve.
