Nutella Cheesecakes





Disclaimer: Somehow I could not find my large piping head and only my tiny one so the presentation looks terrible (kind of like brains)!!  Don’t judge a book by it’s cover–these cheesecakes are DELICIOUS!!!

My dad is not a big dessert fan at all.  He is the only person I know who can consistently pass up brownies, cookies, and cakes.  However, he loves cheesecake.  I saw these nutella cheesecakes on pinterest and wanted to find a way to make them skinny so that we could all enjoy them. 

I made four with oreo crusts and two without (my dad didn’t want crust).  My dad ate the two without crust and half of my mom’s.  He could not get enough!  They are lighter in consistency than normal cheesecake however they are super rich!

Nutella Cheesecakes
Adapted from: My Baking Addictionο»Ώ
Ingredients:
Crust:
2 packages 100 calorie Oreo Thin Crisps, crushed into crumbs
2 T Butter, melted
Filling:
4 oz Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
6 oz Plain Chobani Greek Yogurt
2/3 Cup Nutella
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
1 8oz tub Light Cool Whip
Directions:
In a large bowl with an electric mixer,  mix together cream cheese, yogurt, nutella, and vanilla. 
Fold in cool whip until evenly blended with no streaks.
In a small bowl, mix oreo crumbs and melted butter. 
Spoon crust into the bottom of each dish.
Press firmly to create crust.
Pipe filling evenly into each of the cups.
Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.
WW Points +: 10 per serving (with crust)
8 per serving (without crust)
Makes 6 servingsο»Ώ

The servings were very filling.  If you wanted to cut each in half and make 12 servings, it would also cut your points in half to make it less of a splurge.  But hey, we were celebrating so we ate the big ones!ο»Ώ
