Easy, Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

My husband has been asking me to make him a chocolate cheesecake, and my daughter has just been bugging for any flavor of cheesecake.  I finally gave in, and made one of the best cheesecakes ever – Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake!  WOW, it was amazing.  I am going to be honest, I only tried one little bitty bite since I am on my diet.  If you are looking for a fast, and easy cheesecake recipe you cannot go wrong with this No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe, adding Nutella was a nice touch.

Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

If you haven’t made a No-Bake Cheesecake, I think you will be happy with the process, it’s super easy and takes no time at all.  The hardest part if the Graham Cracker Crust, but if you grab one from the store you are smooth sailing.  I made my Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake with a store bought crust I had lying around, and had everything mixed, put together, and in the refrigerator in less than 15 minutes.  It’s super easy, check this out:

Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (9 inch) graham cracker crust
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen COOL WHIP whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (13 ounce) jar of Nutella, or similar hazelnut spread.
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips (optional)

easy cheesecake recipeMy husband wanted the chocolate chips, and my daughter didn’t.  So we meet in the middle, and made half with, and the other half without.  It’s totally up to you.

Easy, Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake Directions

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl beat Nutella and cream cheese until it’s a smooth texture.
  • Fold the whipped topping into your Nutella and cream cheese mixture.
  • Once combined pour your mixture into your pie crust, spread evenly, and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  • Serve chilled, and enjoy your yummy cheesecake!

cheesecake recipeSee it’s super easy to make, especially if you cheat like I did and grab a graham cracker crust from the store, lol.  I mean, why wouldn’t you want to take that extra shortcut when you are making a super easy No-Bake Cheesecake to save time anyway.  That’s my excuse anyway, that and I didn’t have any graham crackers. If you do have everything for a homemade graham cracker crust, I would suggest it.  In my opinion the homemade graham cracker crust is always better.  

Easy, Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake RecipeI have been doing something thinking, and you know what else would be good with the Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake?  Rather than using a graham cracker crust, make individual servings, and use a oreo cookie.  Sounds pretty awesome, my husband wants me to make that sometime soon, so we will see.  I am honestly trying to avoid cheesecake.  I am on a diet, and it’s one of my favorites… Lucky for me I have a very supportive husband, and teen daughter that say they will be sure to take care of the next Nutella no bake cheesecake so I don’t eat any.  See how lucky I am?  Secretly, they are giving one another a high-five because there is more for them.  

If you use this Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake recipe be sure and let me know how it turned out, and what you thought about it.

Super Easy Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe that taste amazing.

  1. 1 (9 inch) graham cracker crust
  2. 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  3. 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  4. 1 (13 ounce) jar of Nutella, or similar hazelnut spread.
  5. 1 Cup Chocolate Chips Optional
  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl beat Nutella and cream cheese until it’s a smooth texture.
  2. Fold the whipped topping into your Nutella and cream cheese mixture.
  3. Once combined pour your mixture into your pie crust, spread evenly, and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  4. I like to let mine no bake cheesecake sit overnight, but you can get away with leaving it for about 3 hours. Really it doesn’t matter, it’s going to taste amazing!
  1. You can pick up a crust at the store for a few bucks, or you can make your own. I am going to admit, for this one I used to store bought crust I had laying around, but you can totally make your own.. Either way it will turn out great, and taste fabulous. When I make my own graham cracker crust this is the recipe I follow.
  2. Homemade Graham Cracker Crust
  3. 1 1/2 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  4. 1/2 White Sugar
  5. 7 Tablespoons Butter (melted)
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional, but gives a nice flavor)
  7. Graham Cracker Crust
  8. Simply, mix together graham crackers, sugar, butter, and cinnamon until mixed together.
  9. Take mixture and place into a 9 inch baking pan and press firmly into your 9 inch pie pan.
  10. You can bake your crust for 5 minutes, and then place in the oven. My sister-n-law does this and it taste great, but mine is just your average crust nothing fancy. I did not place in the oven.
  11. Remember you can use anything that sounds good as a topping. This was our first Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe, but it will not be our last.

    There are cheesecake recipes everywhere this year. TV, magazines, online and pinterest as well as all social media sites I’ve visited. This Nutella-No-Bake is the first I’ve seen. I would go for the chocolate chips myself. But, between being so easy to make and your family’s delight, either would be perfect to me.
