Simple, yet decadent No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

Hello… I’m Sara! I co-author the lifestyle blog, Simply Happenstance, with my lovely friend Nicole! We are so thrilled to be guests on Simple as That today! We hope that you find this recipe as irresistible as we have!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Have you started thinking of a fun way to celebrate? What about a date night-in? With four kids, a fire schedule, and the busyness of the day-to-day runaround… my husband and I often prefer spending time together at home {after the kids go to bed}, versus going out. It’s just easier… and usually way more enjoyable! {After all, your attire can consist of cozy pajamas, no make-up, and hair pulled back into a topknot – what’s better than that?}

The crust is made from crushed up graham crackers held together with melted butter. The cheesecake filling is a luscious mixture of cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, cream, and… Nutella! {No need to melt any chocolate for this recipe – just add in the contents of the jar, and it turns out perfectly!}

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 18 graham crackers
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 16 oz. cream cheese {2 packages}, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 – 13 oz. jar Nutella
  • Optional Toppings:
  • powdered sugar for dusting
  • chopped strawberries
  • chocolate shavings
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, pulse together graham crackers and melted butter until mixed and crumbly.
  2. Using your fingertips, firmly press the crust mixture on to the bottom of an 8-10 inch spring form cake pan. {You can also use mason jars, pretty glass cups, or individual-sized spring form pans.} Refrigerate while making cheesecake filling.
  3. Next, mix the room temperature cream cheese until smooth, for about 30-60 seconds, using your stand-up mixer or hand-beaters. Add in the vanilla and powdered sugar; mix until creamy. Lastly, beat in the jar of Nutella and heavy cream. {The mixture should be shiny, smooth, and a thick mousse-like consistency.}
  4. Remove the cake pan from the refrigerator and spoon the cheesecake mixture on top, smoothing with a spatula. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  5. Slice and serve cold -- sprinkling with chocolate shaving, dusting with powdered sugar, or simply topping with fresh cut strawberries, if desired. Enjoy!
