Line a 9x13" pan with tin foil or parchment paper if desired and grease the bottom lightly. Combine melted butter and chocolate crumbs and press into the bottom of the pan. *OPTIONAL: bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes (this is unnecessary -- it only helps to firm up the base).
In a small bowl, combine chocolate and 1 tablespoon cream. Microwave on high for 45 seconds and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
In a small bowl, sprinkled gelatin over cold water and let sit for 1 minute. Microwave on high for 15 seconds and stir until dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add in yogurt, Nutella and powdered sugar and beat until combined. Add in cooled chocolate mixture and cooled gelatin mixture and beat until combined.
Add in 1 cup heavy cream and beat on high for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy. Spread onto crust (be sure it's cooled if you baked it), cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight before slicing. Freeze if desired. Garnish with whipped cream and berries if desired.
