Heavenly Chipped Chocolate and Hazelnut Cheesecake

This is a sin cake. So rich and so chocolaty. If you are watching your weight then surely you do not wish to eat this cake. I have always loved this cake and fortunately it is not much difficult to make. It is full of chocolate and all the ingredients are very easily available not only in the stores around you but also on eBay and Amazon. In my family the kids love this cake and would always be sneaking around the fridge so they can take an extra slice when no one is looking. This cake tastes yummy and a must for birthdays and other occasions which demand cakes to celebrate.

Ingredients

  1. Chocolate Chips: 2 cups. Make sure they are not very sweet. So semi sweet chocolate chips are better.
  2. Grounded Hazel Nuts: ¾ Cup.
  3. Hazel Nuts: 12 skinned.
  4. Vanilla Wafers crumbs: 1 ½ cups

      Wow...this looks and sounds sinfully delicious! It would certainly be a cake for special occasions. I imagine that other nuts could also be substituted along with the liquor to match. Giving this a 5 star rating, up and useful votes and will share and also pin to my cakes and sweet breads board.
