Nutella cheesecake pie



What I like about this no bake nutella cheesecake is the pie crust and is very easy to make. I add marshmallow with melted butter and stir into Graham cracker crumbs  to make solid, gooey pie crust.
Cream cheese and nutella has rich flavor so I made this pie really thin but you can make thicker if you like.



Ingredients :

- 2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 2 Tbsp melted butter
- 2 cups marshmallow
- 8 oz cream cheese / room temperature
- 1/4 cup nutella

Directions:
- In a medium bowl heat the butter in microwave about 20 second or until melted remove.
Add marshmallow and stir,back into microwave, and heat for less than a minutes or until melted, stir immediately and pour cracker crumbs into melted marshmallow stir evenly until the crumbs stick together.
Transfer into 9 inch round pan, and fresh them evenly, put in the fridge
Meanwhile, In a mixer beat cream cheese and nutella until combine, pour into pie crust and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes or so and ready to serve.
