New no-bake Nutella cheesecake

I saw a recipe on Pinterest the other day for this no-bake Nutella cheesecake.  It sounded like a great pairing.  But, I can’t stand cool-whip.  It tastes like raw chemicals to me.   Yes, I’ve used the stuff before, but I’m trying to cut a lot of junk out of my life.  Obviously, that doesn’t mean cutting the junkfood out of my life; I’m making a Nutella cheesecake for goodness sakes  That’s not an essential, nutrition-packed recipe, now is it?

Anyway, I have amended the original recipe as follows and it is devine.  My kids loved it too.

 No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake with Oreo crust

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 12 oreo {or oreo-like} cookies
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted

Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup Nutella
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp crème fraîche {optional}
  • 4 Tbsp sugar

Garnish: {optiontal}

  • 1 Chocolate bar {I love the intense flavor of a 70% cacao dark chocolate bar, but you can use whatever is your favorite.}
  1. In a food processor, blend the oreos until they turn to a fine powder.   In a bowl, combine the oreos and the melted butter until they clump together.  Spread the mixture on the bottom of an 8″ or 9″ pie pan.  Make sure that you have a thin layer all the way around.  {My crust was thin and did not go up the sides of the pan.}  Set aside.
  2. In the same bowl as you made the crust, add the softened cream cheese and Nutella.  Mix with a hand mixer until well blended.  Add the vanilla and mix again.  Set aside.
  3. {You do not have to clean the beaters from the Nutella mixture.} In another bowl, whip the whipping cream, crème fraîche and the sugar to fairly stiff peaks.  Be careful not to make butter though.
  4. With a rubber spatula, fold the whipped cream mixture into the Nutella mixture until there are no more white streaks.  It makes a lovely mocha-colored mixture.
  5. Add the Nutella cream mixture to the oreo crust.  Even out the top and chill about two hours before serving.
  6. If you’d like to make it fancy, grate a chocolate bar and sprinkle it on top.
