Two of my favorite flavors combined into one really cute dessert! Mini Nutella Swirl Cheesecake is filled with creamy cheesecake and Nutella Hazelnut Spread on top of a graham cracker crust. You might find yourself reaching for more than just one!
Nutella Swirl Cheesecake
I never tasted Nutella Hazelnut Spread until my daughter, Olivia, went away to college. One of her roommates introduced her to this delicious creamy hazelnut spread and then she introduced it to me! I know this recipe for Nutella Swirl Cheesecake is going to be something my daughter is going to love as I hope you will too.
This is an easy recipe. You all know I don’t like complicated recipes or even recipes with a ton of ingredients. I’ve learned over the years to just keep things simple in the kitchen.
I think these would be a big hit with the holidays coming or for any big family gathering. They would look great on any dessert buffet table.
