This is a winner, this No bake Nutella Cheesecake could not be easier to make. You don’t have to worry about turning on the oven or the cheesecake cracking. And the best part is that this is delishhh.
In my last few weeks of pregnancy the worst part was just waiting around for something to happen, so make plans, for dinner out at restaurants with friends, or brunch out. The worst thing that could happen is that you would have to cancel, and better to cancel than having to twiddle your thumbs waiting for a baby to arrive that you have no control over.
So the last few weeks we had plans every weekend to make sure we stayed busy, and one night I was making a dessert to bring to a dinner party. I didn’t want to make anything difficult but still try something new, well I came across this recipe and it was a winner. It was so good I had give everybody a little doggy bag, because I knew if I brought it home it would not last one more day.
No Bake Nutella Cheesecake
Yield: 8 people
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: Minimum 4 hours Chill Time
9 oz (250g) graham cracker
7 tbsp (100g) salted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
18 oz (500g) of cream cheese, room temp
3.5 oz (100g) powdered sugar
½ cup heavy cream
1 – 13 oz (371g) jar of Nutella
Optional 6 pieces of Ferro Rocher Chocolates
In a food processor pulsate the crackers until nice and crumbly, add the melted butter and give a few pulses until mixed thoroughly.
Put the crust mix into a springform cake tin (I used 8”) and press firmly to create an even layer. Chill in the fridge while preparing the cheesecake mixture.
Beat the cream cheese, with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl until it forms a smooth mixture with no lumps.
Beat in the jar of Nutella until mixture is combined.
Beat in the ½ cup cream until mixture looks shiny and mousse-like.
Dollop mixture onto graham crust and smooth the surface.
Just before refrigerating the cheesecake add some topping if you wish, I crumbled some Ferro Rocher Chocolates and sprinkled on top for some décor.
Chill in the fridge for a 4 hours or, preferably, overnight.
