Somewhere between candy, cookie, and nut brittle lies this dessert that combines hazelnut meal (very finely ground nuts), a splash of Frangelico, and chocolate-hazelnut spread for a triple hit of nutty goodness. This sophisticated dessert, with its large, pizza-sized shape and artfully pebbled texture, only takes 21 minutes to make, so baking a second batch couldn't be easier.
Hazelnuts, hazelnut-chocolate spread, and fat-free cheeses make this dessert lower in saturated fat and higher in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat than most cheesecakes. Look for hazelnut-chocolate spread near the peanut butter in your supermarket or make your own.
