St. Patty's Day Nutella Oreo Cheesecake

Congratulations again to our three winners!  Everyone made some great comments.  I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  Its time to look forward to St. Patrick's Day and everything green.  So I thought I would share a festive spin on some delicious cheesecake.

What you will need:
4 packages of cream cheese (8 oz each)
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sour cream
4 eggs
1 c. Nutella
1 preformed graham cracker crust
1 preformed chocolate cracker crust
12 Oreos
green food coloring

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.  Start by mixing the crusts together in a bowl, and press them into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan (I used a measuring cup to get it firmly pressed down).  Then, mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and sour cream in a mixer until well blended.  Next, add each egg one at a time until well blended.  Separate the mixture so it is in two bowls.  In one bowl add green food coloring until it is the shade of green you would like.  In the other bowl mix in the Nutella.  Then, pour in each layer, smoothing after each one.  Lastly, crush up the Oreos and sprinkle them on top!  Bake for 45 minutes. 

Let the cheesecake cool and then refrigerate it for at least 4 hours before serving.  It also even better if you top it with some chocolate syrup when you serve it! YUM!

Happy Crafting!!
