Do you love Nutella? What about creamy cheesecake? If you said yes to either – then keep reading. Because today I’m sharing this easy no-bake Nutella cheesecake recipe.
It starts with a crunchy Oreo crust. Then the dreamiest, creamiest, silky smooth chocolate hazelnut cheesecake imaginable. Best of all – it’s a super easy, no fail, no bake cheesecake recipe.
How to Make No Bake Nutella Cheesecake
Before getting started, you’ll need to make sure that your cream cheese is well softened. Otherwise, the cheesecake can end up with lumps – instead of silky smooth, which we definitely don’t want.
First, we make the Oreo cookie crust by combining crushed Oreo cookies with melted butter and pressing it into the bottom of a springform pan. You can either crush the cookies in the food processor or by placing them in a Ziploc bag and crushing them by hand. Then pop the crust into the freezer while you make the filling.
For the filling, whip the cream until stiff peaks form – this keeps the cheesecake from being too dense and heavy.
Then beat the cream cheese until no lumps remain, and mix in the cocoa powdered, powdered sugar, and Nutella. You’ll need the 26 oz size jar of Nutella for the cheesecake – but you’ll have some leftover. Then once it’s smooth and creamy, gently stir in the whipped cream.
Spoon the batter over top of the Oreo crust, smooth the top, and pop the cheesecake in the fridge to chill.
I topped mine with a few fresh strawberries, whipped cream and an extra drizzle of Nutella. Because more Nutella is always a good thing in my books.
I’m always a fan of cheesecake – but this Nutella cheesecake just might be my new favorite. Creamy, smooth, tons of Nutella, and way easier than any baked cheesecake. You’re going to love it!
