Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake
Method

For the cheesecake crust:

  • Put the sandwich cookies in a food processor and beat them until they are finely ground. 
  • Add the melted butter and beat for another 30 seconds until the butter is absorbed. 
  • Transfer mixture to a 24 cm spring form pan. 
  • Spread it on the bottom of the pan and then gently press down on it with your hands until it becomes compact. Set aside.

For the filling:

  • Beat the mascarpone in a mixer with the whisk attachment. Beat for 2-3 minutes on medium to high speed until it is light and fluffy. Make sure the mascarpone cheese is at room temperature. 
  • Add the hazelnut chocolate praline and beat until it is completely combined.  
  • Remove the mixing bowl and stir with a spatula.  
  • Pour the filling into the crust.
  • Smooth the top of the filling with a spatula so it can look nice! Refrigerate for 5 hours. 

For the Hazelnut Chocolate Praline ganache:

  • Put the Hazelnut Chocolate Praline in a bowl and add the heavy cream. Heat them in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes at 700 watts. Remove and stir until it is creamy and shiny. Make sure there are no lumps. At this point if there are any lumps, it means that the cream was not hot enough. Microwave for just a few seconds longer and stir until there are no lumps.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the refrigerator.  
  • Pour the ganache over the cheesecake.  
  • Smooth the top nicely with a spatula.
  • Refrigerate again for 2-3 hours, until it is completely chilled. 
  • You can also decorate the top of the cheesecake with candied hazelnuts or any of your favorite toppings!
