I made this cheesecake for Christmas dinner and it was the best, most impressive dessert I've ever made. I live at a very high elevation so I had to modify the cooking time (increased baking time to 1 1/2 hours). I also thinned down the glaze with additional hazelnut liquor so it would spread easier. This is my new Christmas tradition!
This was SO impressive and SO delicious! I made it for a New Year's Eve dinner and everyone thought it was store-bought. It was very easy to make--even easier if you have a food processor to chop the ingredients for the crust.
This is a very rich and delicious cheesecake. My only suggestion would be to make all the crust ingredients (except for the melted butter) at once in the food processor (instead of chopping each one separately. I had lots of fun making (and eating) this cheesecake with my daughter. It cracked right away, we covered it with chocolate, and no one was the wiser! :)
LOVED this cheesecake! Not hard to make (first cheesecake I've made where it didn't crack!) The crust was hard to press into the bowl, possibly because I didn't grind up the hazelnuts and chocolate chips well enough. Overall, very rich and tasty!
Very Good. I increased the filling by 1/3 to make it a little taller. I also use hersheys special dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and used Mocha Kalua instead of hazelnut (its all the store had) but it came out amazing anyways. The hazelnuts in the crust paired with the mocha make it taste like a ferrero rocher chocolate...only cheesecake form. Very good recipe!
WOW!!! Made this for Thanksgiving and it was soooooooooo wonderful! Everyone loved it...my boys fought over the leftovers the following morning for breakfast!!! I used chipped semi-sweet large choc. chips in the crust and for the topping...used mini semi-sweet chips for in the filling...used chopped toasted nuts on top...and used raw sugar (simply don't care for white sugar). A definate keeper - making next weekend for a Christmas party!!! Thank you!
when i frist saw it i said it looks good then after i made it i said wow that was good.yum:->
This was one of the best cheesecakes I have had. I replaced one cup of cream cheese with a cup of sourcream so it wasnt as heavy and the store didnt have vanilla crumbs so I used graham crumbs.
