    1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate wafers

    1 (13 oz.) jar Jif® Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread

    4 large eggs, divided

    2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided

    1/2 cup sugar

    1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. HEAT oven to 325°F. Place 8-inch springform pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (18-inch square). Securely wrap foil around outside of pan. Stir crushed wafers and melted butter in medium bowl until evenly moistened. Press onto bottom and 1 inch up sides of springform pan. Chill 15 minutes.

  3. BEAT remaining 1 1/2 packages cream cheese, 1 tablespoon flour and sugar in separate medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add remaining 2 eggs and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, beating just until blended.
  4. SPOON chocolate hazelnut filling in crust, spreading so that top surface is smooth. Top with plain cheesecake filling. Place springform pan in large baking pan; add 1 inch hot water to large baking pan. Bake 60 to 65 minutes or until center is almost set. Remove springform pan from water bath. Cool on wire rack 15 minutes. Carefully run knife around inside edge of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cool completely. Cover and chill several hours or overnight.
