No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake Recipe

Firstly, if you are a huge fan of cheesecake but not the hard work that goes into making it, you will love our No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake recipe. For instance, there are going to be times when you don’t want to fuss with an oven or worry about taking all that time to bake. In fact, this is where a no-bake recipe would just do the trick! 

Rich and creamy, this simple no-time in the oven recipe is definitely a dessert you should add to your must-make list, along with other easy dessert recipes like Oreo Cookie Pie and Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge. And while it is as easy as pie, with some quick decorating, it’ll look as fancy as any restaurant dessert. Meanwhile, the hardest part you will have is waiting for the cheesecake to come out of the refrigerator.

If you’re a Nutella lover, after tasting this cheesecake, you will definitely deem it as your top fave! Packed with hazelnuts and graham crackers as the base, you get to enjoy an extra crunchy texture that goes wonderfully with the creamy Nutella. Moreover, the base also has a touch of Nutella, so you’ll feel like you’re biting into a Nutella biscuit form! And for the ultimate nutty decadence, we’ve added a dollop of whipped cream sprinkled with hazelnuts to top the cheesecake.

How To Make No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake

This No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake will take you to Nutella heaven with its crunchy Nutella crust and velvety filling! You can't get more Nutella than this!

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 25 mins


For Crust:

  • 10 oz graham cracker crumbs
  • ¾ cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 7 oz melted butter, unsalted

For Filling:

  • ½ cup Nutella
  • ½ cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 lb cream cheese, softened



  1. Place graham crackers into a ziploc bag and seal tightly. Make sure to remove any trapped air. Using a rolling pin, crush graham crackers until they form fine crumbs.

  2. Next, add graham cracker crumbs into a metal mixing bowl. Then add in hazelnuts into the graham cracker mixture.

  3. Add 2 tablespoons of Nutella and unsalted melted butter to the cracker mix. Pour it into the crumb mixture and stir well using a silicone spatula until you get a damp, sandy texture.

  4. Press mixture into a 9-inch springform pan. Use a spoon or a cup to create the base for your cheesecake. Place in the fridge to chill.


  1. In an electric mixer with the beater attachment, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  2. Add ½ cup of Nutella and beat at medium speed.

  3. Add powdered sugar to the mixture and beat on low speed, increase to medium speed, and mix until fluffy.

  4. Pour the Nutella mixture over the base and spread evenly with a spatula. Make sure to spread the filling to the edges of the pan.

  5. Refrigerate cheesecake for 4 hours or until ready to serve.

  6. Before slicing your cheesecake, dip the knife in hot water. Wipe down knife with a clean cloth and slice the cheesecake.

  7. Place a dollop of whipped cream on top of your cheesecake and garnish with a handful of chopped toasted hazelnuts. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can also pulse the graham crackers in a food processor to create fine crumbs.

Slicing the cheesecake with a hot knife ensures a clean cut without the filling sticking to the knife.
