Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake


While I am busy baking sugar-free and lower fat delights in an attempt to keep us all on the straight and narrow with our healthy eating, the kids have other ideas... one wanted to cook, one found this Nigella recipe, they all went shopping , two actually cooked, and this was the result. (Yes, I did try just a teeny weeny piece, and it was awesomely, wickedly wonderful!) Being the creative souls they are, they substituted the hazelnuts in the recipe for pecans, which worked beautifully. The velvety texture of this dessert is no doubt helped by the fact that the filling contains no less than 2 jars of Nutella! The base is crumbled Digestive biscuits (Graham crackers).
