Cook's Hideout: No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake

No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake

Blogging Marathon# 55: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Nutella Galore
Dish: No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake
Here's another lip smacking dessert using Nutella, a no-bake cheesecake. I usually plan the dishes to make for the marathon, well ahead of time. But for this week except for the muffins I made for the first day, I had nothing planned for the next 2 days. I was able to make the s'mores based on my son's tv show, but I was clueless as to what to make for today.
Clueless because there are sooooooo many dishes that can be made with Nutella and I'm sure every single one would taste amazing. I was very tempted to make Valli's Nutella mousse in chocolate cups, but was too lazy to make the chocolate part.

Then I saw this no-bake Nutella cheesecake on Pinterest and made it right away to make sure I don't change my mind :-) Original recipe used frozen whipped topping, but I didn't want to wait for the whipped topping to thaw, so I whipped fresh cream and folded it into the nutella-creamcheese mixture.

My mouth started watering just thinking of this yummy dessert. It's creamy and absolutely delicious. The quantities I used made just about 3 tiny portions and my kids and I shared them for dessert. It is a great dish to make ahead of time and serve at parties.

Recipe adapted from here:
Ingredients: Serves 2~3
Oreos - 4, crushed
Cream cheese - 4oz., softened
Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread) - ⅓cup
Heavy Cream - ⅓cup
Vanilla extract - ¼tsp

Method:
  • In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and nutella. Mix well. 
  • Using a hand mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Reserve ¼cup of the whipped cream for topping.
  • In the remaining whipped cream, add the cream cheese - nutella mixture and beat until well combined.
  • To Assemble: Divide the crushed oreos evenly between the serving cups/ glasses and press it lightly to form a crust in the bottom.
  • Spoon or pipe the nutella-cream cheese filling over the oreo crust. Then top it with the reserved whipped cream and sprinkle crushed nuts or oreos.
  • Chill for at least 2 hours to set the cheesecake. Serve cold and enjoy!!

  2. This looks absolutely divine! Btw, the recipe doesnt show the no. of cups for nutella and cream. On a side note, looking at all the nutella based recipes, I went in for a nutella banana milkshake for breakfast this morning :D.
