This recipe is for Nutella® and chocolate lovers. Its creamy texture and crispy base make this Nutella cheesecake one of my favorite dessert! It is so easy and no baking required!
Make 8-9" pan
For the crust:
150g digestive biscuits or store-bought/Homemade Graham Crackers
60g butter, melted
2 tsp caster sugar, or to taste
For the filling:
120ml whipping / thickened / heavy cream (I used this sweetened whipping cream)
150g Nutella chocolate, melted
2 Tbsp cocoa powder, mixed with warm water
200g cream cheese
Some topping ideas:
Crushed hazelnuts, or any nuts
1. For the base: Crush the biscuits and mix with melted butter and caster sugar. Press the mixture gently into a springform pan and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
2. For the filling: Whip the cream until soft peak stage. Add melted Nutella chocolate and cocoa powder mixture, mix. Fold in the cream cheese until well-combined.
3. Spread the mixture on top of chilled crust. Tap the pan a few times to remove any air bubbles. Decorate with toppings of your preference.
4. Freeze overnight or at least 6 hours. Serve!
☼ Replace Nutella chocolate with dark chocolate.
☼ I did not add any sugar in the filling because the Nutella chocolate is already sweet on its own. Fill free to adjust to your preference.
