Graham Cracker Crust

  • 1 & 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9″x 13″ baking pan.

Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter, flour, and brown sugar. Press into bottom of prepared pan.

Bake 10 minutes or until set.


Filling

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Nutella

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in eggs and vanilla.

Spread filling evenly over crust. Drop Nutella over top of filling. Using a knife, swirl Nutella into the filling.

Bake 20-22 minutes, or until filling is just set. Cool for about an hour. Then, refrigerate until completely chilled and firm before cutting into bars.
