Ok, this Nutella Cheesecake recipe is an absolute no brainer. It’s SO freakin’ tasty, ridiculously easy to make and a perfect, make ahead, dinner party recipe. There are literally no bad words to be said about this sensationally simple & delicious dessert. So! Here is what you will need to make 8 generous portions. (Or 4 if you are seriously greedy & pregnant like me hahaha!)
(Adapted from Rasa Malaysia a fabulous blog with loads of great recipes!)
- 285g Digestive Biscuits
- 60g Unsalted Butter
- 1 x 400g Jar of Nutella
- 90g Chopped Hazelnuts
- 450g Philadelphia Cheese (Original) Room Temp
- 65g Icing Sugar
- 22cm (8 1/2″) Springform Pan
- Food Processor
Note – Do NOT use a low fat or cheap version of the cream cheese. Only Philadelphia Original full fat will set properly. Trust me, I’ve tried!
No Bake Nutella Cheesecake Recipe
First and foremost, lightly grease and line the base of the springform pan.
Then gently melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat.
In a food processor, add the digestive biscuits, the melted butter & 1 tbsp of Nutella. Blitz until it forms a fine, sandy texture.
Add in 25g of the chopped hazelnuts & blitz again until it just starts to clump together.
Press the biscuit into the base of the lined tin. Press firmly & smooth out with the back of a metal spoon then place into the fridge whilst we get on with the filling.
Either in a large bowl with an electric hand whisk or a freestanding mixer with the beater attachment – beat the cream cheese & icing sugar until smooth.
Then add in the remainder of the the Nutella and mix until you can’t see any more white & it’s nice and smooth.
Pour the filling on top of the biscuit base and smooth out as best as you can with a spatula.
Sprinkle over the remaining chopped hazelnuts then pop into the fridge to set for a minimum of 4 hours. Overnight is better if you can though.
And that is pretty much it, I told you it was easy!
This Nutella Cheesecake really is the perfect dinner party dessert. It only takes about 15 minutes to make then the rest of the hard work is down to the fridge. Allowing you to spend more valuable time with your guests, who by the way – will be BEGGING you for the recipe! I mean seriously, who doesn’t like Nutella??
I hope you enjoyed the post lovelies – until next time!
