  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix Crust ingredients with spoon until soft dough forms. Press dough in bottom of pan. Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes.

    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl frequently. Beat in hazelnut spread. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating until just blended. Beat in 2 tablespoons cream and the vanilla. Spread evenly over cooled crust.
  • 4
    Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Cool 30 minutes on cooling rack. In 2-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and 1/2 cup whipping cream over low heat, stirring frequently, until chips are completely melted and smooth. Carefully pour and spread topping over filling. Sprinkle immediately with nuts, chips or jimmies. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until cooled completely. Cut into 8 rows by 3 rows.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to soften cream cheese to room temperature; if cold, filling will be lumpy.
  • To get clean cuts when cutting cheesecake bars, dip knife into hot water, and wipe blade with a towel after each cut.
  • Hazelnut skins can be challenging to remove. Toast nuts at 375°F for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring once or twice. Pour nuts into a clean kitchen towel, and gather tightly in a bundle. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes; rub vigorously with towel to remove skins.
