Nutella Mascarpone Cheesecake

Hello, Sunshine! In our house my husband and five-year-old LOVE Nutella. Honestly, it’s gross how much of it the two of them can eat. It’s at the point that my daughter asks to hide the Nutella from my husband and he always finds it.  We all have a sweet spot for cheesecake, so I decided to combine the two and create a Nutella Mascarpone Cheesecake. To make the cheesecake even more exciting, I used organic coconut sugar for the first time.

 

Viva Labs Organic Coconut Sugar

I’ve never baked with or added coconut sugar to anything before. Yes, I’m a true coconut sugar virgin. I decided to scoop out a small amount of the sugar and try it before I added it to my Nutella Mascarpone Cheesecake. I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t overly sweet and doesn’t taste like coconut at all. It has more of a caramel flavor and I love caramel.  

Viva Labs Organic Coconut Sugar looks a lot like sugar in the raw. The crystals are larger than cane sugar and I was worried that it wouldn’t blend well. Thankfully, the crystals quickly blended with my mascarpone and cream cheese. There was a distinct color difference. The combination was honey colored instead of your typical ivory cheesecake, but that didn’t matter at all. I really liked the coconut sugar and I LOVE that it is non-GMO, organic and contains vitamins so many of us are desperately needing in our lives.

    GIRLLLLL!!! This sounds SOOO yummy! I may have to try this on a cheat day. Shockingly, my husband thinks Nutella is gross… weird! He’ll eat in foods, but not alone… I know it’s crazy.

      I need to take a picture of the after pan. I went to give the baby a bath and 3/4 of it was already gone. I don’t really have a sweet tooth, but everyone else in my family does. xo

      • Mrs. AOK says:

        I’m the same way, I’m more of a savory lover more so than sweet. These guys (my 3 kiddos & hubby) can do sweet all day.
        The pan was a testament to how awesome you did mama!

  • I think I just fell in love with this recipe! So if I only wanted to make one cheesecake (Not sure why I would want to do that), I would just half the recipe?

      I think if you make your own pie crusts it makes one cheesecake, but I didn’t have time to. I know every time I make this recipe I have enough for two, so I guess you could half it for one.

    This sounds amazing, Chastity! My husband is a big fan of cheesecake and Nutella so this would be gone in no time at our house 🙂 Love the chocolate pie crust too – it sounds perfect with everything!

    • Chastity says:

      Thank you, Kelly. My family is choco-holoics. Me, not so much but I really like cheesecake. 😉

  • You had me at Nutella, haha! Anything with Nutella is amazing so I’ll have to try this recipe!

      Nutella, the magical product that brings tears of joy and sadness in our house. They’re happy when we have it and then they cry when someone eats it all.
