{Recipes} No Bake Nutella Cheesecakes

T.G.I.F! Yes, it's Friday and for some of us that means let loose! Or at least for me it usually means stock up on sweets, which is why when I stumbled upon this recipe, I couldn't help but share it with you. I have yet to try it out but rest assured that I will definitely be whipping up some No Bake Nutella Cheesecakes sometime this weekend.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes


For the Crust

12 Oreo Cookies, crushed into crumbs
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup Nutella
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed

For the Garnish

whipped topping, optional
chocolate shavings, optional
toasted, chopped hazelnuts, optional


1. In a medium bowl, stir together the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter. Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.
2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth. Add vanilla and mix to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended and no streaks remain.
3. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
4. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping, chocolate shavings, and/or toasted, chopped hazelnuts.

PS. I Have A Side Note
I am beyond excited about my new vintage glasses and I just can't wait to be able to see through these new babies! Thoughts?
