Ferrero Oreo and Frangelico Chocolate Cheesecake
I was given a packed of Ferrero Roche’s recently and decided I wanted to incorporate them into a cake. I figured if I made a recipe with these chocolates in them a cake that is baked would be a flop (as the Ferrero’s would just melt) so I needed to make a cake that didn’t require baking. I know this is not very imaginative but all I could think of was a cheesecake.
So now I knew what cake I would make and I knew one of the key ingredients but I still needed to come up with a flavour combo and structure of the cake.
So Ferrero Roche’s are the collaboration of chocolate and hazelnut flavours. To make this cake a little unusual I decided to take these flavours to the next level. How I was planning to do this?
An intense chocolate hazelnut biscuit base (Oreo happiness), Hazelnut liquor (hello Frangelico) spiking the cheesecake filling with textural oreo chunks and of course the whole Ferrero Roche’s scattered within the cake its self for a special surprise.
This resulted in a very amazing hazelnut, chocolate surprise cake that is super easy, no oven required and has a silky texture.
This is the perfect celebration cake for the choc hazelnut fan. A little goes a long way and is a guaranteed epic birthday cake.
