Luckily, Google delivered in the form of Chocolate Suze's No Bake Nutella Cheesecake. And she really wasn't kidding when she said it was super easy. I used Leda brand arrowroot biscuits for the base, because I needed it to be gluten free, and they were surprisingly awesome. Annoyingly, gluten free biscuits only seem to come in 200g packets when you need 250g, but OH WELL. I also used unsalted butter because that's what we happened to have
Other than that, the only alteration I made was to stick the jar of Nutella in the microwave for about 20 seconds, just so that it was easier to get out! It looked pretty promising when it went into the fridge:
When I took it out of the fridge five hours later and popped the springform pan, the cheesecake started to split. But that was quickly fixed by locking the pan shut again and running a butter knife around the inside to loosen it!
The verdict? It's pretty rich but totally delicious. The arrowroot biscuits help cut through some of the sweetness and I was really REALLY surprised at how well it set considering there's no eggs or gelatine in it and it wasn't baked. Plus, I had the whole thing made and in the fridge within about 20 minutes. TOO EASY.
