Pin to Pan: Gluten-Free No Bake Nutella Cheescakes

So I spotted this amazing recipe for No Bake Nutella Cheesecake by My Baking Addiction over on Pinterest (via Katie) a couple weeks ago, and just new I needed to create a gluten-free version for my daughter’s birthday. Since the recipe is virtually gluten-free as is, it was easy to adapt and tastes every bit as good as the original (I’m certain of it). If you’d like the original version you can find it right here.
