no bake nutella cheesecake.

I found this recipe for No Bake Nutella Cheesecake over at My Baking Addiction and decided that I HAD to make it this past Sunday for our Super Bowl BBQ.  The original recipe called for using frozen whipped topping (like Cool Whip) but I decided to make my own (instructions below).  Unfortunately, my pictures did not turn out well and did not do this fabulous recipe any justice so I’ve included the pictures from the original post below.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

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) whipped topping*

*For the Whipped Topping

1 (8 ounce/227 g) container of fresh whipping cream
1/4  teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 packet of Splenda

For the Garnish

whipped topping, optional
chocolate shavings, optional
toasted, chopped hazelnuts, optional
fresh strawberries, halved, optional

Directions:

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 whipping cream, vanilla and Splenda until soft peaks form (approximately 5 minutes).  Set aside for step 3.

3. 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.

4. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

5. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping, strawberries, chocolate shavings, and/or toasted, chopped hazelnuts.
