CHEESECAKE #1: CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT CRUNCH CHEESECAKE
Cheesecake Factory Description: a Chocolate hazelnut cheesecake topped with hazelnut crunch and nutella
What I Was Working With:
I was missing the Nutella drizzle that is typically found on this cheesecake. (I got this piece of cheesecake, FOR FREE, after i got the JOB at Cheesecake Factory so i can’t really complain).
This cheesecake had a distinct hazelnut flavor (obviously) But it wasn’t over powering and was the perfect amount of hazelnut. The crust tasted similar to a chocolate chip cookie sans the chocolate chips so the crust was one of the highlights of this cheesecake. The top layer was a smooth and creamy hazelnut cheesecake with swirls of chocolate. The middle layer was filled with toffee crunchies which gave the cheesecake a nice contrasting texture. The bottom layer was a cookie like crust. Each layer added something delicious to this particular cheesecake.
My cheesecake was not topped with nutella, but it did have little chocolate chips on top which hey, you can never go wrong with chocolate chips. I would definitely like to try this cheesecake again WITH the nutella on top…because everything tastes better with nutella.
Overall Rating: 7/10.
I would definitely eat this cheesecake again but it does not beat out my current top 3 favorites (Adam’s Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple, Salted Caramel, Dutch Apple Caramel Streusel).
Give the Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Cheesecake a try and let me know your thoughts….
