No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

(This is part of the new weekly series posted by our chef-in-training, Josh)
I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought it looked fun because it is easy and simple. This is a no bake nutella cheesecake recipe. We love nutella at our house, as in we, put it on every thing from toast to sandwiches. If you don't know what nutella is then let me tell you, nutella is a hazelnut spread with some chocolate in it. 
When I started to make it I thought we were out of cream cheese so I thought I could substitute 8 ounces of cream cheese with cream butter (P.S. not so good it is to buttery with 3 tablespoons more).

 Try this Yourself

For the Crust

12 Oreo Cookies, crushed into crumbs

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup Nutella

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed

1. In a medium bowl, stir together the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter. Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.
2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth. Add vanilla and mix to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended and no streaks remain.
3. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
4. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping, chocolate shavings, and/or toasted, chopped hazelnuts.
