Celebrate the Oscars in style with this decadent Oreo and Nutella Cheesecake. Rich, Creamy, Hazelnutty and Chocolatey. Definitely an award-winner. 


  For the crust:
  • 20 (200 g) chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos)
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) hazelnuts
  • 2-3 tbsp Nutella

For the filling:

  • 80 g (3 oz) bittersweet chocolate (you can use semi-sweet or milk chocolate if you’re not a dark chocolate fan)
  • 1 cup (300 g) Nutella, divided into 2 portions
  • 500 g (16-17 oz) cream cheese
  • For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup (80 g) hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 3-4 chocolate sandwich cookies (35 g) such as Oreos, roughly chopped


To make the crust:
  1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles damp sand. Add more Nutella if you feel the mixture is too dry.
  2. Press the mixture evenly on the bottom and up the sides of a 20 cm (8 inch) springform pan, and set aside.
To make the filling:
  1. Place one of the portions of Nutella into a bowl along with the chocolate.
  2. Melt in the microwave for around 1 minute, checking every 20 seconds and stirring in between until chocolate has melted completely.
  3. Beat in the remaining Nutella and cream cheese. Keep mixing and folding until the mixture resembles the consistency of chocolate mousse.
  4. Scrape the mixture onto the Oreo crust and spread it out evenly using a spatula or knife.
  5. Top with the Oreo and hazelnut chunks.
  6. Cover the cheesecake with cling film and place into the refrigerator for a minimum of 3 hours, or overnight preferably.
  7. Serve wedges plain or with berries.
