Wonderful recipe. Relatively easy to make, this delectable cheesecake is creamy and rich all the way through. I would suggest doubling the sauce portion of the recipe.

  4. In a bowl, cream the sugar, Nutella and mascarpone or cream cheese until smooth.
  5. Add the melted chocolate and Grand Marnier and stir gently to combine.
