Fancy (But Fuss Free) Nutella & Oreo Cheesecake

A note from Joelle...

This recipe is so simple it's crazy! It is just a regular chilled cheesecake recipe, but served in  fancy dessert glasses. It just makes it look extra classy and it tastes delicious too!

You will need:
10 packets of oreos cookies
A jar of Nutella
A tub of marscapone cream cheese
Melted butter
Icing sugar
Vanilla extract
Berries to garnish (optional)
Rolling pin
Plastic sandwich bag
Dessert dishes/cocktail glasses
Mixing bowl

Place the Oreo cookies into a plastic bag and whack it senseless with a rolling pin!  If you are not fond of food abuse then you can always blitz them in a food processor/blender.
If you get a few larger crumbs in the mix, don't worry! They add the extra crunch to the biscuit cheesecake base. Melt the butter in a separate pan and then slowly add to the Oreo crumbs, mixing to cover all the crumbs. The mixture should turn almost a black colour.
You now have your buttery biscuit base!<<< I dare you to click this link! Spoon generous amounts into each glass/dish, wrap with clingfilm and then place in the fridge to firm up for about an hour. If you cannot wait that long, place in the freezer for 30 mins.
While the base is firming up, mix the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract together. Slowly add the Nutella next. You can mix it all in ferociously to turn the whole thing brown or you can do the marbling effect, which creates cute swirls of chocolatey goodness!
Add the chocolatey-cheese mix to the now-firm biscuit base and smooth over with the back of a spoon.
Leave to chill in the fridge until you want to serve it!
Add a few strawberries cut into halves and then serve chilled.
Et voilà!
