6 sheets of Graham Cracker

*NOTE:  You can skip the butter if you have  Heavy Cream (this gives you options =)

1/4 Half & Half or Heavy Cream

Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat & Make Crust

Preheat oven to 325 F. Spray the inside of pans. Mix together crust ingredients Divide evenly among the 3 pans  Use a flat bottom glass to press down and flatten the crust


Bake Crust & Cool

Bake in the oven 8 minutes or until lightly golden. Allow to cool 15 mins (Cool to Touch) While crust in cooling, start making the cheesecake filling


Mixing the Filling

Add cream cheese, Nutella, sugar, salt and vanilla to medium size mixing bowl & mix. Then add in sour cream and egg, mix well.


Fill & Bake

Divide filling evenly among 3 pans. Bake for 30 minutes. No Water Bath Needed (To protect your oven, you can line the bottom with foil)


Cool Slowly

Turn oven off, crack door & start cooling 15 mins., then 15 on a wire rack on the counter, then wrap and cool in fridge for 1 hr.


Optional, but Recommended- Ganache!

Add chocolate, half & half & butter to double boiler  Stir until it's a smooth, shiny consistency. Wait 10 minutes and decorate.


Decorate with Drips

I like chocolate drips for these Nutella cheesecakes, but you can do a thicker chocolate layer just on top if you like.
