Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake [Vegan]

This raw cheesecake is the stuff that dreams are made of. It starts with a chocolatey hazelnut base that's covered in a rich, creamy vanilla-hazelnut cashew cheesecake filling. But, it doesn't stop there. The cake is then coated in a layer of thick dark chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate bliss balls. A sprinkling of chopped hazelnuts adds a finishing touch of showmanship.
