I had you at Nutella, didn’t I?
I found this recipe for Nutella cheesecake bars by Kelly of Live Love Pasta. As I didn’t have the appropriate tins to make the bars, so I made cake instead. I want to hug whoever came up with the recipe so Kelly if its you, you’ve have been warned!! Because not only is it does it Nutella the base is made of Oreos!!
This cake is delicious, it’s so good that it has become a family favourite.

- Pour it over the first layer and spread it so that it covers the whole area.

This is by the far the best Nutella cheesecake I have tried, but don’t take my word for it.
