A perfect desert for a dinner party, a snuggly Saturday night in or even one to pull out of the bag on Christmas Day! Very simple, no baking required and only a small amount of ingredients and utensils needed. So … Let’s Bake! (or not bake)

 

Utensils:

  • Scales and food processor
  • Tablespoon, Knife, Teaspoon & Spatula
  • 23cm/9inch round flat tin with a pop up bottom

 

Ingredients:

  • 250g digestive biscuits 
  • 75soft unsalted butter 
  • 1 x  400jar of Nutella (at room temperature)
  • 200g chopped toasted  hazelnuts 
  • 500cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 60icing sugar (sifted)

Method:

  1. Break the digestive biscuits into the food processor, add the butter and a tablespoon of Nutella, blitz until you can see the mixture coming together
  2. Add 25g of the chopped hazelnuts and continue to pulse until you have a damp, sandy mixture
  3. Pop the mixture into the round tin and press into the base either using your fingers or the back of a tablespoon. Place in the fridge to chill
  4. Use the food processor to mix together the cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth. Add the remaining Nutella (without eating any) and continue mixing until combined (now you are free to lick the spoon)
  5. Remove the tin (biscuit base) out of the fridge and smooth the Nutella mixture over the base, spreading evenly using a spatula or knife
  6. Scatter the remaining chopped hazelnuts on top to cover and place in to the fridge (I recommend overnight)

Serving Suggestions:

  1. Refrigerate over night for best results
  2. Serve straight from the fridge for best results
  3. Add a little pouring cream and hey presto

Here are some pictures to help guide you through the preparation…

I found this recipe last week over on Anna-Marie’s Mummy Hearts You blog and couldn’t wait to try it out on a dinner party at the weekend. We were not disappointed. I must confess to making a couple of changes, mainly to suit our nutty cravings and how we served it! You can find lots of other Nutella recipes and many more yum scrum deserts over on her little blog.

Feeling hungry? What are you waiting for lovelies … Get to the shops!
