Grease a 23 cm round spring-form tin with butter and line the bottom and sides with baking paper. To make the crust, add the biscuits to a food processor until they resemble fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and stir through the melted butter. Carefully press the biscuit crumb into the bottom and sides of your tin as evenly as you can to form a crust layer. Use the back of a
spoon to get a nice smooth finish. Set in the refrigerator.
To make the filling; In a small bowl add gelatine to ¼ cup of hot water and stir quickly until dissolved. Set aside. Place cream cheese, thickened cream and icing sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer at a moderate speed until smooth and creamy. Add Nutella and eggs and continue to beat for 3-5 minutes until mixture slightly thickens. Add dissolved gelatine and beat for 1-2 minutes until well combined.
Pour Nutella filling into the prepared biscuit base and smooth the top. Gently warm 1-2 tablespoon of reserved Nutella in the microwave for approximately 40-50 seconds. Drizzle over the top.
Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours (preferably overnight) to achieve the perfect texture. This cake is best served chilled. Use a knife dipped in hot water for the perfect slice.
