Nutella, popcorn and cheesecake? Who wouldn't love this? Thanks Chew Town for the amazing recipe! Ingredients: 3 cups unsalted popcorn 1/4 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes 6 tablespoons butter, melted 1 packet cream cheese (225g), softened 250g mascarpone cheese 3 tablespoons nutella, for filling 3 teaspoons Nutella, to serve handful crushed roasted hazelnuts, to serve Instructions: Preheat oven to 180°C. To make the popcorn crust, place popcorn in bowl of food processor a cup at a time and process until finely ground. In a medium bowl, mix ground popcorn, 1/4 cup sugar, sea salt and butter until combined. Divide mixture into thirds and then press mixture firmly onto bottom of three 10cm spring-form tins. Transfer to the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely. While cooling, mix cream cheese, mascarpone and Nutella in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until well blended. Spread evenly over the popcorn crust in the tins and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until ready to serve. To serve, first run a knife between the cake and the edge of the tin, then open the spring form lever and carefully remove the cheesecake. Top each cake with a teaspoon of Nutella and some crushed nuts.

@alohajpark delicious... and you're right @galinda salted popcorn crust is something I could get into real fast. I've got a cakepop idea thst I'd like to create and post. and it's a chocolate base combined with bits of popcorn mixed. topped with crushed salted popcorn kernels. Any thoughts?
@marshalledgar That sounds incredible! I was going to say that I didn't think I could eat a full slice of this cake so a cake pop would be perfect! Plus cake pops are just the best, aren't they? ;)
@marshalledgar I'm looking forward to that post. I love cake, but the amount is too heavy for one person.
This sounds so perfectly sweet and salty...I need to try this!!!
Can't wait to try this with my new stand mixer!
