DIRECTIONS

  • Lightly oil the base of a 9-inch spring form pan.
  • Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the crushed cookies and press on to the base of the pan with clean fingers or the back of a spoon.
  • Chill while preparing the filling.
  • In a bowl, cream the sugar, Nutella and mascarpone or cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add the melted chocolate and Grand Marnier and stir gently to combine.
  • In a small glass bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the 1/4 cup of hot water (according to instructions on package).
  • Fold the gelatin into the filling mixture along with the whipped cream.
  • Pour this mixture over the base.
  • Refrigerate for 4-5 hours, uncovered; do not unmold.
  • To prepare the sauce, add the cream to the melted chocolate while it is still hot and stir in a tablespoon of Grand Mariner (or more to taste).
  • When the cheesecake has set, pour the sauce over the top while it is still in the mold.
  • Set back in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes before unmolding and serving.
  • Garnish with orange zest or crushed hazelnuts, if desired.
