To die for Nutella, Ferrero Rocher cheesecake

I went to a dinner party on Saturday night and volunteered to bring dessert – something sickly sweet was the only request so I put my mind to work and conjured up a delicious creation full of sweetness and the kind of thing that you DO NOT include on your daily calorie tracker.

But, despite the unhealthiness, this cheesecake was one of my best yet and I think everyone needs to at least try it once!
