..No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

December 4, 2012

Not only is this recipe so easy your least domestic pal could totally nail it, but it also tastes like sparkly unicorns are having a disco party in your mouth. YOU DON'T EVEN NEED AN OVEN! I changed up the crust (because who doesn't want to add more chocolate to their lives?) and edited the portions from the original recipe I found because they were all weird (like 19 oz of cream cheese? That makes no sense as there are 8 oz in each package, right? - also I just don't get all that grams business) so just follow the one below.

Ingredients (recipe adapted from here)
Two packages cream cheese
1 jar of Nutella (the small 13 oz one, not the giant one)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1.5 packages of chocolate graham crackers
1 stick of butter, melted
6 crushed Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls

1. Grind up chocolate graham crackers in a food processor and gradually mix in the melted butter.
2. Press crumbs into your baking dish, or spring-form tin, and then pop in the refrigerator to harden while you make the rest.
3. In a bowl mix the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar until smooth. Then add in the jar of Nutella and continue to mix. Lastly, add in the cream and keep mixing until smooth.
4. Put mixture into pie crust and smooth over the surface.
5. Throw your Ferrero Rocher crumbles on top and pop in the refrigerator for a few hours or if you are impatient like me, the freezer for about 45 minutes.

  4. OK - so every year I try something new for the holidays and always fail!!! I feel like I wouldn't fail at this, but I also feel like everyone LOVES nutella and cheese cake so much. I might make this and try not to eat it. We'll see how that goes.

  5. When I saw this I thought, "OH NO SHE DID NOT!" Haha you always post the most delicious looking recipes, but Nutella is like my favorite thing, so now I HAVE to make this one! Especially after your endorsement of it tasting like "sparkly unicorns having a disco party in your mouth!" And I've been trying to be good lately. Oh well, there goes my diet!
