- 245g (8.6 oz) Golden Oreos
- 10g (1.5 tbsp) Corn Flour/Corn Starch
- 400ml (1 + 2/3 Cup) Double/Heavy Cream
- 180g (1/2 Cup + 2 tbsp) Nutella
- Pinch of Salt

No Bake Nutella Tart Recipe
First thing’s first. Preheat your oven to 160°C/Fan 150°C/320ºF and spread the chopped hazelnuts out on a small baking tray. When the oven is preheated, pop the hazelnuts into the oven to toast for about 5-10 minutes until they smell fragrant and turn a darker brown. Set to one side to cool until needed.
To Make The Biscuit Base
To make the base, melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave in 10 second intervals, swirling a little between each blast.
Next tip the Oreos into the food processor, fillings and all. Blitz them to a fine crumb and pour in the melted butter. Blitz briefly until it starts to clump together.
Then tip the mixture out into your round baking tin and press firmly into the base and sides with the back of a spoon. Pop into the freezer to firm up while we make the filling.
To Make The Nutella Filling
In a small glass or bowl, weigh in the corn flour then pour over a little cream. Give it a stir. Don’t worry if it clumps, it will be fine I promise.
Now pour the rest of the cream into the large saucepan and add the Nutella, salt and corn flour mixture.
Then turn the heat up to medium and stir constantly using a whisk.
Bring it to the boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes until it’s nice and thick. Make sure to stir constantly so it doesn’t catch on the bottom of the pan.
Then stir through the vanilla and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. It will thicken a little more when cooling.
Pour the Nutella mixture into your prepared base and spread out evenly with a spatula.
Now sprinkle all those beautiful toasted hazelnuts around the edge and allow to set in the fridge for 3-4 hours.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
Look how beautiful that looks!! Don’t you just want to fill your face with it immediately? I know I do! The texture is absolutely beautiful, so smooth and silky.
