"This is an unusual cheesecake that is absolutely wonderful. If you're going all out, track down real gianduja chocolate and mascarpone cheese. If that seems too expensive, then use semi-sweet chocolate and a good cream cheese, but don't forget the hazelnut liqueur! It's delicious and decadent. Serve in small pieces." — SMQ1404

In my quest to find an atypical chocolate cheesecake, this was perfect! I made it exactly as stated, and made it again using another high quality bittersweet chocolate rather than Gianduj. The phyllo is a wonderful change. Knocked everyone's socks off.
the batter tasted really good, but it was just ok once it cooled down.
maybe because i used a heart shaped springform pan, i wished i didnt have phyllo on the side.
I tried this recipe scaled down to 8 servings and the results were amazing. Note that instead of a phyllo dough I made it with Graham crakers crust... Amazing! Also gets better with age! Thanks again I will be making it again!
Loved the taste! I didn't like the Phyllo dough crust. It was hard to work with and cut and I don't think it added that much to the dessert. I would make this with a chocolate cookie crust if I was going to do it again.
This was FANTASTIC! I love Gianduja, even though I can't pronounce it very well. :)
I made this for my wife for Valentine's Day, and she loved it. But, she doesn't like the alcohol taste, so I substituted 2 tablespoons of Starbucks hazelnut syrup. Worked great!
