Kind of amazing. I made my own crust of 2 2/12 cups Multigrain Cheerios (crushed), 3 tbsp sugar and 1/4 butter baked at 350F for 10 mins. I also used a bit less cream cheese and nutella, since I had only about 13 oz of (light) cream cheese to bake with. Quick, easy and most importantly, delicious.
I guess I'm in the minority here in not caring for this recipe. Fast and easy, yes... also incredibly rich. But just not my thing. It's *nothing* like a cheesecake as far as texture goes. As for flavor it tasted too much like cream cheese with a slight hint of Nutella rather than tasting like the oh-so-yummy goodness that is Nutella. We actually wound up only eating a couple small slices and throwing the rest of it away after it sat in the fridge for several days untouched. =T
This was ok, just not a big winner at my house---a little too rich for us. At 40 grams of fat per serving, I don't think I'll be making this again. Sorry.
